Gold Standard Event Security Training: Graspan Frankton’s Commitment to Excellence Amidst Industry Concerns


In recent headlines from the BBC, alarming revelations have surfaced regarding the quality of training provided to event security guards. These reports have unveiled instances of what can only be described as “sham” training courses, raising serious concerns about the preparedness and qualifications of security professionals tasked with safeguarding high-capacity event spaces. Against this backdrop, Graspan Frankton’s commitment to providing high-quality training courses that prioritise competence and professionalism stands as beacon of assurance.

Paul Manning, Director of Graspan Frankton, expressed his deep concern regarding the exposure of these subpar training programs. He emphasised the critical importance of well-prepared and highly trained security personnel, especially in the wake of recent terror attacks and other disasters involving large-scale event venues. “In an era where security is paramount,”


Manning stated, “it is imperative that security staff are not only equipped to spot suspicious activity but also possess the skills to analyse risks and respond with calm efficiency. First Aid certification is an imperative part of a security professional’s training, and we take it very seriously.”

At Graspan Frankton, our training courses are designed to set a higher standard. We understand the vital role security officers play as the first point of contact between businesses and the public. Therefore, it is our unwavering commitment to ensure they are not just effectively trained but also compliant with legal requirements, particularly in the often challenging security environment.

One of our flagship courses, the Level 2 Award for Working as a Security Officer within the Private Security Industry Top Up, is tailored for learners seeking to obtain or renew their Security Industry Authority (SIA) license to work legally as Security Officers. This course is specifically designed to update learners on the latest license-linked qualification requirements.
