Are safety courses useful

The security industry opens up a wide range of opportunities for employees and a wide range of possible uses and uses on the labor market. Anyone who enjoys working with people will find a suitable job as well as someone who, for example, likes to be alone.

The advantages are obvious:

  • collectively agreed salary consistently above the minimum wage
  • Job security through a wide range of options
  • social dependence on high performers is reduced
  • Career opportunities with appropriate qualifications

Last but not least, the legal minimum requirements for security forces have changed since January 1st, 2017, so that employers, employees and clients have to protect themselves differently.
