Graduate Diploma in Private Security Operations (Online)


There is an increasing tendency towards professionalisation and career planning in the private security industry. The UAB, for example, already has a programme that leads to professional qualifications in private security management: the Higher Course on Security Management and Law, with over 45 editions.
Some companies operating in this sector have chosen to go further in developing career plans for their personnel – as seen, for example, in the collaboration agreement between the School of Risk Prevention and Occupational Safety (EPSI) and the SECURITAS Institute, which aims to professionalise private-sector security personnel and give recognition to the competences they acquire – while at the same time adapting constantly to changes in the security market, legislation and clients' needs. The aim of these companies is to provide their professionals with a global vision and a knowledge of the many areas in which this vision needs to be applied, and the ability to analyse causes, intervene, coordinate and contribute to improving public security management.

The main objective of this course, offered jointly with the SECURITAS Institute, is to improve the competitiveness and employability of private security personnel at a time of changes to legislation, and provide managers with the competences needed to fulfil their companies' objectives and safeguard their clients and the general public.
