NGO launches security guard training programme for women

Non-government organisation Centre for Social Research (CSR), which works for women’s rights, launched a Women’s Security Guard Training Programme at the mini-secretariat here earlier this month. The 45-day skill-based training programme will provide employment to women who are above the age of 18 and belong to marginalised sections of the society.

CSR director Ranjana Kumari said: “It is time for us to pay close attention to the statistics of crime against women and increase the number of trained women security guards in the country to ensure women’s safety. This programme will also open doors to all those women who could not complete their education due to lack of financial support or family pressure or marriage at an early age. This programme will definitely help in increasing the number of trained women security guards at all public places.”

The training for the first batch commenced on October 15. Four batches will be trained in six months.

The programme will include practical and theory classes besides soft skill development classes, certified under the Sector Skill Council and Private Security Agency Regulation Act, 2005.

In the theory classes, the trainees will learn about the security sector, maintaining operational performances in accordance with basic security practices, regulatory and legal requirements governing security tasks. They will thenparticipate in physical activities such as rope climbing, running, hurdles, etc.. Soft skill training will be given to make sure that the trainees learn to interact with officials, clients and customers. They will also be taught the appropriate body language, basic English phrases and data entry on the computer.
