I have used Blueprint Training on several occasions to send four of my clients on SIA training courses. The standard of service was excellent. My clients received additional help when completing SIA forms. Each of my clients was given the individual care and attention to suit their specific needs. The feedback from my clients was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was efficient and highly professional.

I have to say our whole group thought Alex the Blueprint Trainer was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed the course. I just saw someone with a sling on the wrong way in Buchanan Street – made me twitch!

Rona Gibson - Customer Marketing Manager

Thank you for all your help during my 'door supervisor course', which I did with you back in December 2017. Your approach and teaching method gave me a lot of confidence and I thought you'd appreciate knowing that a week after I left, I got a job as a safety steward with a Security Company whilst waiting for my licence. The licence was granted on the 11th Feb but I may not need to use it. I applied for a job as a security officer with the Scottish Parliament, I've made it through all the stages and am awaiting security clearance, if that comes through ok, they'll make me a formal offer, if not, well, my licence should come in handy. None of this would have been possible without your help. Teachers in what ever field need to encourage and inspire their students and you certainly did that. Thank you so much. All the best.


From the start to the finish all candidates were made to feel welcome by the Course Tutor Mr Alex McAuley from day one. A rapport was quickly built up for all candidates which helped make this an enjoyable course.I feel there can be no substitute for the accumulated experience and exemplary in depth explanations which were given by course Tutor as it left no grey areas for misinterpretation. In respect of meeting the professional standards required which has in my opinion left an impression on all? I evidenced additional support during physical intervention training in which safe restraining procedures were broken down and explained making learning easier, and specifically constant support given to candidates with language barriers underpins a commitment to success for all, despite the difficulties therein presented to the Course Tutor. I feel it is important that the efforts and commitment of staff do not go unrecognised, so In closing I would like to thank Alec and all staff on this course for an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I will have no hesitation in doing further quality training with Blueprint and I will be recommending you to my friends and colleagues.

Best wishes for the future

I felt my course tutor Stuart Nicoll covered all aspects of the course in a clear and concise manner that was easy to understand and made it enjoyable. As the only woman present I was made to feel comfortable and at ease

Margaret Fenton - Door Supervisor in Glasgow on 18th February 2015

The course delivery and instruction has been second to none. The instructors teaching techniques, genuine enthusiasm, interaction and his overall subject matter knowledge made learning easy and enjoyable. I will have no hesitation in recommending and undertaking future courses with Blueprint Training. Overall a very good course and learning environment. Fully enjoyed. Excellent Instruction.

Michael McCarrol - Door Supervisor in Glasgow on 04th March 2015 Course tutor - George Jaffrey

Overall Alex is a fantastic trainer. He listened to everyone's questions and needs. Wouldn't change anything about the course

The personal approach and experience the trainer has was great in relation to explaining scenarios and course content

Marc Crighton - Dundee Door Supervisor Course

From being involved in the airline industry, and fully understanding how vital it is to receive positive feedback. I would just like to write you all a line, with a special mention to trainer Alex McAuley, in respect to my recent training experience with Blueprint Training towards my SIA Door Supervisor License from the 16th-19th November 2013 in Edinburgh. Firstly, from enrolling in a 'top training organisation' in what was portrayed as one of Edinburgh's superior training providers prior to approaching Blueprint Training, they have been put to shame! Blueprint has certainly provided a service in which I have went away feeling absolutely satisfied with the service that I have received throughout the four day period without any hesitation. The booking experience was an absolute doddle, with Martin Williamson booking myself onto the course and sending all the relevant documentation as needed, the first impressions were certainly of a high standard! Coming round to the training, Alex McAuley is, to say the least, a very experienced characterizable chap with a wealth of experience in the field that he was training in. Every day I would be warmly welcomed with a smiley, well presented face who obviously has passion in what he does! The material used for training (i.e- the presentations and notes) were of a very high standard, and in comparison with the last training provider I used. There was so much more material and experience brought to the table that helped greatly. I felt as if everything Alex was explaining to me, I was taking a grasp of the information provided and somewhat taking it in. When it came to the examinations, I felt as if all the information provided by Alex slurred out all at once, which is believe me a good sign! The tailored approach when it came to filling out the SIA application form was made very easy as Alex went through every initial point with the group. All in all, I couldn't ask for more! The venue was second to none with a spacious, light room to carry out our training in. It was great to be part of the Securigroup venue, and to be examined by a Securigroup team member also as I am currently enrolling in their Door Supervisory work promoted by the company. I'm sure that I will be requiring further training in the near future, and by all means, Blueprint Training will be my first port of call! What a fantastic service, and a very big well done to Blueprint Training!

I was at Edinburgh for my Door Supervisor course on 14-17th March. I was really nervous of what to expect never mind the commute from Dundee. On arrival I met the tutor Alex McAuley who noticed we were nervous but he soon showed us not to be. Alex was the Friendliest guy I have ever met. Some of the course confused me but Alex helped me to understand it. All the training was amazing and he went out his way to help plan my route to Edinburgh for rush hour in the morning. We were never late and it was a privilege meeting this man. The group was really out going and we all had laughs and helped each other out during the Physical Intervention. I would recommend Blueprint to anyone for the training and if you go to Edinburgh you'll get to meet Alex. The four days were amazing so I would like to thank my group and Blueprint and most of all Alex McAuley. Thanks so much and I will remember my training as I was taught.

The tutor was actually exceptional. I enjoyed every bit of my lessons highly recommended.

Ikechukwu Eric Jikeme - Aberdeen Door Supervisor Course

Absolutely fantastic experience with Blueprint Training! The course tutor was definitely the most professional and inspirational person I have ever met! Thank you Alex, you made the course very worth while and extremely enjoyable. Would most certainly recommend Blueprint to many people who have an interest or want to get into the security industry as you will receive the best training there is, by the best tutor there is!

Jamie Lusted

Excellent training given by people who know the industry inside out. If you want the best, then Blueprint is it.

Maureen Ritchie

I have just passed my SIA upskills course through Blueprint Training. I would recommend this company to anyone. My instructor Stuart Nicoll was great and passed on his extensive knowledge and experience to the class.
