Our Team

 

The Security Skills Certification Scheme (SSCS)  is a non-governmental, international and independent body.

 

We act within the Private Security Industry through a registered scheme to verify that individuals meet the mandatory requirements for working in this Industry. 

 

 

We are a certification body that on the one hand provides professional badges to individuals who meet the mandatory requirements to work in this sector and on the other hand designs, develops and manages evaluation schemes that lead to regulated qualifications. As Awarding Body, the SSCS is based on the British learning specifications of the SIA (Security Industry Authority).

 

The SSCS's Directors come from the International Security Industry, an international team of security experts with an extensive hands-on experience from all levels of the industry. We all believe in making the industry more secure.

 

Our mission is to protect employers and contractors in one hand with professionals in the other. Our highly skilled team has worked diligently for over 8 years, studying a recognition scheme of professions in the security field.
