The security studies students from Templemore College of Further Education were recently involved in the security operations for the Tommy Fleming concert held in Killaloe, Co. Clare.
The students worked exceptionally hard under the supervision of their Co-Ordinator John Butler to bring about a well organised and smooth running event.
It was also invaluable experience for the students who are currently studying the full time one year programme in the college.
The course involves classroom, fieldwork and work placement education and training. It provides students with the range of practical skills and theoretical knowledge required for employment in the security industry. Students study modules in legal practice and procedures, door security, guarding skills, criminology, conflict resolution and also complete occupational first aid training.
It is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain a valuable insight into the world of security and guarding. If you are interested in applying for An Garda Siochána then this course may well provide you with the skills and aptitude required to gain access in this field of work.
Templemore College is the only dedicated Post Leaving Certificate College in North Tipperary. The College is now a major player in the provision of excellent Further Education services to Tipperary and surrounding counties.
