Security WSQ

Leacov offers WSQ-certified security courses at the operation and supervisory level. Our Security WSQ training supports the Progressive Wage Model (PWM) for the security sector.

The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications System for Security (Security WSQ) maps out the skills needed for a career in the private security industry. New entrants will need to take basic licensing courses before they can get their security license; security officers need to take PWM courses to be promoted.

Each module under the Security WSQ can be taken at the trainee’s own pace, based on their training needs. When a trainee has successfully completed each WSQ module, he/she will receive a Statement of Attainment (SOA), and upon successful completion of the required modules, receive the full qualification. Get the necessary training to be eligible for promotion.

Through Leacov’s training, security personnel can increase their employability and progress within the security industry by acquiring the necessary skills to become a licensed and qualified security personnel. You may choose to speciailise in ad-hoc security or build a career in the security industry.
