PSiRa: Submit course reports only for security officers who paid for training in full

Published on

Effective immediately, training providers are granted permission to submit course reports only for security officers who have fully paid for their training.

Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority made the announcement after concerns over the submission of course reports.

PSiRa director Manabela Chauke said some training providers were facing challenges with security officers enrolling in training programs without fully settling their fees upfront.

“Despite assurances of payment post-training, many security officers fail to fulfil their financial obligations, leaving training providers in a disadvantaged position. In light of this, PSiRA acknowledges the difficulties faced by training providers and the need to address this issue promptly.”

“Henceforth, we are issuing this notice to provide guidance and support to training providers in ensuring fair practices and accountability within the industry. Effective immediately, training providers are granted permission to submit course reports only for security officers who have fully paid for their training,” he said.

Chauke said officers who have not fulfilled their financial commitments before the commencement of training will not be included in the course reports submitted to PSiRA.

“This measure aims to protect the interests of training providers and foster a culture of responsibility among security officers regarding their training obligations. It is imperative that all parties involved adhere to ethical practices and fulfil their commitments in a timely manner.”

“We urge all training providers to exercise diligence in verifying the payment status of security officers before enrolling them in training programs. Additionally, security officers are reminded of their responsibility to honour their financial agreements and settle their fees promptly to avoid any disruptions in the accreditation process,” he said.
