This unit is intended for door supervisors, security officers and vehicle immobilisers who require an SIA licence to practice and covers knowledge and understanding of conflict management.

Unit Introduction

This unit covers how to avoid and manage conflict situations across the security industry. It is better if potential conflict can be avoided altogether, so learners will be taught about ways of doing this. They will also learn about how to manage conflict that does arise, particularly ways of assessing risk to themselves and about how to behave in a way that will defuse the situation. Once a situation has been defused, the next stage is about solving problems and learners will be taught about strategies that they can use to do this. They will also learn about post-incident considerations, such as sources of support and why it is important to share good practice.
