Security Scotland’s Training Division hosts inaugural Level 4 Diploma in Spectator Safety Management Course

This week Security Scotland’s Training Division completed its first ever Level 4 Diploma in Spectator Safety Management Course (Safety Officer) at our Glasgow head office.

Industry experts Chris Baker and David Brannan opened the five-day course, setting the scene for the qualification and giving a detailed overview of the modules. Security Scotland’s management team were joined by several new Safety Officers from around the country as well as a couple of independent safety consultants.

To help bring the training content to life, we were joined by several subject matter experts from across the country:

The Role of the Safety Officer (Bob Park – Motherwell FC)

Safety Certificates (Stuart McLeod – South Lanarkshire Council)

Security Industry Authority (Ronnie Megaughin – SIA)

Risk Fans / Ultra Groups (Inspector Marian McLean – Police Scotland)

CT / Behavioural Detection (Superintendent Pat O’Callaghan – Police Scotland)

Police Free Football (Alan Marshall – Hibernian FC)

Pyrotechnics (Brian McNeill – Systechnica)

The Role of the SPFL Delegate (Tom Purdie – SPFL)

Our planning is now underway to run a second course which is pencilled in for later in the year.
