Our Training Competencies

At Kings Security Systems, our training approach prioritises both safety and competency. Each of our Engineers is multi-disciplined and adept in working with a variety of systems, products, and manufacturers, but working safely will always be our highest priority.

We go above and beyond to equip our engineers with the skills needed to stay safe and work responsibly. When a new engineer joins our team, they are enrolled onto a variety of comprehensive health and safety courses/schemes, including:

  • Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) Passport. This is a 2 day UKPIA course that teaches engineers how to recognise and respond to a multitude of common hazards, including the risks of working on petrol filling stations, which present unique safety challenges.
  • International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). This course prepares engineers for using MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Working Platforms) such as scissor lifts and cherry pickers) to work at heights.
  • Asbestos Awareness. It is estimated that 1.5 million UK buildings still contain asbestos, making asbestos awareness training a potentially life-saving resource for our engineers and customers.

On top of these, our engineers are also given day-to-day manual handling, working at heights and ladder safety training. We also cover several other courses for engineers where required, such as:

  • AC200
  • CEM
  • Comelit
  • Commend
  • HIK Central
  • Milestone
  • Openpath
  • Pacom
  • Pasma
  • Tavcom – CCTV over IP
  • Waterstore

Our Project Managers undergo even more intensive health and safety training because they are ultimately responsible for managing health and safety over the duration of a project. Our project managers complete a Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course, which is a 5 day course covering CDM Regulations, risk assessments, method statements, electricity, evacuation, demolition and confined spaces training, to fully prepare them for their role.

All of our safety training regimes are closely managed by our Compliance team to ensure they are fully up to date.


What our Customers say

We wanted a smart-looking, contactless approach to access control here at Little Dot. We love the Openpath solution proposed by KST; it’s sleek, simple to use and has excellent reporting features. What’s more, KST’s inhouse commissioning team remotely configured the software to meet our requirements - including who goes where and when, through which doors, the reporting we need and integration to our fire alarm system. Thanks to this we have saved the cost of two days labour on install!

IT Manager - Little Dot Studios

KST has once again exceeded all expectations with their outstanding service. Safety is our number one priority for both our Post Masters and customers, therefore we are always on the lookout for new technologies and new ideas. Morphean platforms, along with the installation and maintenance provided by KST, has been the perfect decision for us due to our existing knowledge of their excellent services and competitive prices.

Mark Dinsdale
Security Programme Manager - Post Office Ltd

The mobilisation was smooth with little involvement required from ourselves. Communication, in particular, has been extremely strong with regular meetings. Monthly management information has been circulated and Clipper are using the real time management information that KST have provided with their DYMENSiON software. We also have working action plans on each site focusing on improvements and change management. All in all I would be happy to recommend KST to any company looking at contract award; our experience has been very positive and I am happy to endorse them.

Head of Bonded & Secure Operations - Clipper

The whole process of mobilisation and onboarding to KST was conducted in an exceptional manner, from start to finish. The preparation for the move between City Plumbing Supplies and KST was comprehensive. Collaboration was very good. The days of transfer were event free and smooth - with no major issues. The branches’ onboarding onto the KST system during the 12 weeks following the mobilisation was completed fully with excellent communication sessions conducted on a weekly basis. We are now looking forward to a long and effective partnership with KST.

Steve Kemp
Security, Audit & Loss Prevention Manager - City Plumbing Supplies

We’ve been delighted with the partnership between ISS and KST and the approach to transferring the access control contract. The teams have gelled quickly to understand our estate and we’ve seen significant service improvements.
