ABOUT THE SECURITY COURSE
When you are hired as a security staff member to an A.B.O. you assume liability and responsibility for the security of the patrons, staff and assets of the company. Many of the people hired for this purpose are selected solely because of their size and /or intimidation factor. When one thinks of the term “bouncer”, they immediately imagine a broad shouldered, overbearing behemoth of a man whose imposing stature quickly solves all conflicts.
In reality, the job requires discretion, tact, and exceptional communication skills. Many of these individuals are very professional and conduct themselves properly under any and all circumstances.
Some, however, do not. Because of lack of training, they place their establishment in a precarious liability situation. In today’s overly litigious society this is an unacceptable risk for the A.B.O. owner.
For the first time, a training course has been designed to provide professional training for the people who choose this profession. This is usually an entry-level position that may lead to future management or ownership of a bar, nightclub or A.B.O. because it encompasses so many aspects of efficiently running the business.
Long overdue, this course provides essential conflict management skills necessary to diffuse potentially dangerous or violent situations that sometimes occur in the bar and nightclub business. Employees will learn a practical disturbance response continuum which guides their response to such situations. This course can greatly enhance staff credibility, while reducing civil and criminal liability.
ABSEC has assembled a team of expert instructors in the security industry and is home to the inventor and developer of the ABO security program that is in use today. Please see the “About Us” page for biographies.
(Some refer to this training as the required Louisiana bouncer certification course. We refer to it as the “ABSEC” training and certification course)
