The Door Supervisor Training Organisation
To work as a SIA Door Supervisor or SIA Security Guard in the UK you will need to have an SIA licence issued by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
One of the requirements of the SIA licence is that you hold a recognised qualification, and the Level 2 Award in Door Supervision meets the requirement for the SIA Licence.
We run SIA Door Supervisor Courses in Bournemouth, Reading, Brighton, London, Kent, Ipswich, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Lancashire and Norwich.
What people have said about DSTO Ltd
After attending your SIA course in Ramsgate in September I want to congratulate you in your delivery.
Whilst the framework of the course was based around the SIA criteria what made the course so much more inspiring was the fact you were able to draw on your years of experience to relate text book lectures to real life scenarios. Rather than adding any form of a glamoura ™ to the door persona ™srole you focused on the a reala ™ responsibilities of ensuring a safe and secure environment for customers of the establishment, often quite graphically.
From my research DSTO isna ™t the cheapest nor the shortest course available but I would advise anybody thinking of joining the industry to attend a course run by you.

Hi. I would like to thank you following the three day SIA DS Course run at the St. Lawrence Tavern, Ramsgate. It was professionally run, enjoyable and highly recommendable. It was a pleasure meeting up with you and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future a professionally of course.

Just a quick email to say thank you for both the HD and the Maybo courses you have run for us. Having spoken to the guys after yesterday they were very positive about both the course content and your delivery. I will certainly look to implement the techniques into the way that I work!

Dear Bob,
Many thanks for the excellent training this week, may I take this opportunity to say, that it was apparent from the very outset by the way in which you delivered the course that Door Supervision is a subject of which you are passionate and whilst it was an intensive course, it was thoroughly enjoyable and I believe I can speak for all of us on the course when I say that we have all come away with a set of skills that will most certainly set us on the right road for the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending either yourself or the DSTO to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the field of professional Door Supervision.
I hope we meet again very soon in a more professional scenario.

Andy and Erica from Reading:
"Hi just wanted to say how much Erica and i enjoyed the course. Bob was a superb instructor, he not only made the course interesting but based it on his vast experience. I would recommend DTSO and Bob as the instructor to anyone. As you can see he really impressed us both, so well done and thanks very much."
Lesley from Bournemouth :
"Yes thanks very much everyone really enjoyed the course and I'm sure they all feel more confident within themselves. I would like say how nice it was to have someone so professional delivering the course. I will definitely want to run this course again with the next batch of Duty Managers so will contact you again nearer the time."
Phil from London:
"Unit 2 - This part was not so easy for me, never worked a door or hands of conflict. I was put at ease; Tommy is a great guy, wealth of experience and a way of getting the training over in a simple and uncomplicated way. Mind you he may tell you different, his students were hard work, there was quite a language barrier he had to get over and also using slang and local words. Again Tommy had this guy wanting to tell and make his points of view, over and over again. An extremely good trainer and a lot to give, very passionate in wanting people to pass, he gave them a lot of confidence. Seems he went out of his way to help everyone, including me."
John M from London:
"Just a quick note to say the last 2 weekends i have attended your door supervisor training course at the university of London. The first weekend with Tommy and the second with Bob Knowles, I just like to say thank you very much and must say that it was taught very well and both bob and Tommy excellent and i came away from the course feeling confident about what i had learnt.
" I nearly choose to go on a course at a college near me were it would have been probably taught by someone who had never done the job, and i am glad that i continued to search the internet and i found the DSTO were we were taught by experienced people."
John C from Norwich :
"I would like to thank your organisation for an extremely well run and enjoyable course, (Course reference ncds-PO10009) the instruction by Tracey was first class and full of enthusiasm. I will most certainly attend more courses with you and will be recommending you to colleagues and friends."
Trevor from Bournemouth:
"I found the course very enlighting & and informative, although I have done door work in the past & consider myself to be an old hand with the job I still picked up some useful information & tips, never too old to learn. I would also like to add that Brenden was brilliant, he is an excellent instructor & made the course pleasurable & informative."
