Difference between Door Supervision and Security Guarding Licence

A Door Supervisor and a Security Guard both Secure premises against damage, theft, unauthorised access or disorderly behaviour, However a Door Supervisor additionally can work at licensed premises for example night Clubs /Pubs where alcohol is consumed. Door Supervisors also receive physical intervention training during the course specifically to deal safely with those drunk on the premises. Not everyone who wants to work in Private security industry needs Door Supervisor‘s licence and similarly Security Guarding licence is unsuitable for those who want work at Licensed premises where alcohol is consumed.
