G4S India Highlights the Need for Training in the Private Security Sector at the FICCI - PSIC 2018

NEW DELHI, August 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

G4S India, an industry leader in the security solutions business in India, today participated in the sixth edition of 'Private Security Industry Conclave' organized by FICCI in Delhi.

The objective of the conclave was to bring together experts from the Government, Industry, Controlling Authorities, user agencies and other stakeholders to discuss and debate various policy and regulatory issues concerning the private security industry.

Private security sector is rapidly evolving to keep pace with changing customer demands. With greater technology adaption and focus on solution delivery, security sector is on the anvil of transformative changes. There were panel discussions to discuss successful case studies and future trends in ManTech Collaboration.

Mr. Rajeev Sharma, Country Managing Director, G4S India and Member FICCI Private Security Committee, said, "Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) will build pride amongst the workforce and establish a common benchmark for the industry to operate on. While there are regulations in the form of PSAR Act, there is no consistency in the skills development programs in the industry. With the launch of the RPL efforts, a beginning would have been made to standardize the certification process in the industry for the biggest portion of our workforce - the unarmed guard."

Ms Rupan Sidhu, Director Corporate Affairs, G4S, said, "In India, the private security industry is one of the largest employment generating industry; it employs anywhere between 8 to 9 million people. An industry with such a large size and employment potential requires appropriate skills to ensure job creation as well as appropriately trained manpower. Recognition of prior learning is an ideal vehicle for formally recognizing the skills that already exist in the industry."

The Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act, 2005 outlines training content and training certification as primary eligibility criteria for individuals employed in this sector. Furthermore, changing times require private security guards and supervisors to multi-task and use technology to perform their security, safety and facilitation functions. Skill development especially Recognition of Prior learning (RPL), reskilling and upskilling are major challenges before the sector. Skill Development Mission of Government of India has provided impetus to manpower intensive and large employment generating sectors. This session discussed the need for deeper collaboration between Skill Development Ministry, Government of India and private security agencies.
