Business Licensing and the SIA

Posted by:

I was one of the 60 or so delegates at the SIA Approved Contractors forum in Stoke upon Trent last week. The ranks were swelled by those wanting know more about the implications of the Business Licensing programme which is due to be implemented in 2014 and the opportunities and/or threats to those who already hold approved Contractor Status.

Posted by:

I was talking to a fellow member of one of my regular networking groups last week, when we got to talking about our key-holding and alarm response service. When I mentioned the relatively low cost for the service, his response was: “Well that’s a no-brainer, why wouldn’t anyone use that service!”

Perhaps we don’t publicise what value for money this service represents and the important reasons for having an outsourced Key-holding and Alarm Response service.

What should an accredited key-holding service do?

Posted by:

Doga and Security services in Nottingham and the East Midlands

Posted by:

I was listening to the radio a few days ago where they were discussing the latest fad which has swept over from America. Doga is, apparently, yoga for dogs. That got me thinking about what else could be brought over the pond from the good old U S of A from a security point of view.

I have fond memories of visiting a brother who worked for three years in Kansas City in the deep mid-west of the States and leafing ...

Security Company Executives – Qualifications and Memberships

Posted by:

Following on from my recent blog about accreditations for Security Companies, I’m now having a look at what qualifications and memberships are available for leaders of security companies and what the requirements are for membership. Again, whilst sitting in the lofty tower office that is my Nottingham workplace, these are my thoughts and experiences and others may have differing opinions on the subject.

As mentioned last week, IPSA offers individual as well as organisational membership. Within ...
