At KnowledgeTree, the quality of our classes is one of our top priorities. Our team of trainers are experienced veterans in the security industry. Along with a well-decorated team, KnowledgeTree places emphasis on the realism of the courses being delivered. We offer an array of different props for trainers and trainees to use to better relate to real-life security scenarios.
Although KnowledgeTree’s learners have consistently achieved a high pass rate, KnowledgeTree places more emphasis on the KnowledgeTree experience that learners undergo the moment they enrol for a course with us. With our vision of becoming the leading security training institute and people developer in Singapore and the region, we prioritise the quality of classes delivered to learners and assist them in securing a security position should they require assistance. As long as learners have a basic command of the English language, do not have an existing criminal record, or are declared bankrupt, they are eligible to take up our WSQ security courses with KnowledgeTree.
With over 1,000 learners under our belt, we took the opportunity to speak to our existing learners to find out a few tips on how they prepare themselves ahead of their security course assessment. Here are some of their tips:
In KnowledgeTree, our pool of trainers are experienced security professionals and have been conducting classes over the years. Here are some tips from our trainers to prepare students for assessments:
Additionally, our experienced trainers will educate learners using different techniques to ensure learners understand topics that are challenging.
Some examples of the training techniques are:
Reinforcement roleplay training (repeating role-play of different scenarios), practical approach (sharing personal ground experience relating to topic) and summarizing the topics in point forms or breaking up the contents into bite-size so that learners may have a better understanding.
As our courses are under the Security Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) framework, the approved assessment organisation is POLWEL. As an independent assessment body for the private security industry, POLWEL works closely with the Singapore Police Force and SSG in managing the assessment regime to ensure adherence to the relevant competency requirements.
The various assessment formats are as follows:
For most of the courses in KnowledgeTree, allocate 2 hours for each learner to complete the assessment. However, the duration varies for every individual ranging from 45mins to 1 hour on average.
If you do not have prior experience, you will need to complete the following 3 courses under the Basic Licensing Units (BLUs) with KnowledgeTree to be eligible for a security licence and become a licensed security officer in Singapore.
PGPS – Guard and Patrol (Provide Guard and Patrol Services)
HSIS – Incident Response (Handle Security Incidents and Services)
RTT – Threat Observation (Recognise Terrorist Threats)
Once learners have passed the 3 Basic Learning Units (BLUs) to attain their security licence, they are able to further upgrade themselves by enrolling into our Senior Security Officer (SSO) courses or even our events security courses which allows them to qualify for events security jobs.
