Confusing qualification systems in the German industry

In Germany there are currently 6 different qualifications and training courses that qualify personnel for security activities. The differences between these individual qualification levels are not widely known, even within the security industry.

The differences are significant. There are so-called "seat tickets" for which you only have to sit 40 hours of lessons without an exam and  others with a mandatory three-year vocational training.

As of 2019, around 92% of all German security staff had only the most basic qualifications, which did not include any practical training. There is almost unanimous agreement in the industry that this qualification is virtually worthless and is by no means sufficient to provide security services at a high level.

Qualifikationen im Bewachungsgewerbe

Many activities in the security industry are very simple and do not require high qualifications. However, other areas should never be left in the hands of people who have the professional status of semi-skilled unskilled workers.

If you want to hire security you need to know exactly what you want if you don't want to be ripped off. Because the rate of black sheep is high in the industry.

If you order trained specialists for simple jobs, then you pay money unnecessarily. After all, specialists in the security industry are well paid. And quite rightly so. Furthermore, you will demotivate and bore professionals with dull activities. The quality of the work drops drastically as a result.

For certain activities, however, trained specialists are absolutely necessary. Keep in mind that the lowest minimum qualification does not require any school qualifications and only language skills of B1 are expected. These are completely inadequate for detailed reports, radio communication and de-escalation in stressful situations.

With our information offers and advice you will find the balance. You don't waste your money on personnel that you don't need and spend it in the right place in a targeted and effective manner. As a master company, we know the industry like the back of our hand and protect you from nasty tricks and surprises.
