CST Training for Security Volunteers

Firstly, a big thank you to those of you who volunteer to do the security rota. CST wants to ensure that people have the training they need for when they do security at their synagogue or school. We deeply appreciate the part that these volunteers play in helping to secure our community. In 2016 CST created a new training course to meet those needs. To date over 1000 volunteers from all over the UK have attended this course.


The training teaches the essentials of security work. It is ideal for both those who already participate in voluntary security and those who want to get involved. It will also provide an excellent basis if you want to learn more and go on to a more senior security role, either locally at your synagogue/school or more broadly as a full volunteer member of CST.


The course is taught over 3 interactive and dynamic sessions of two hours each. The first two sessions are theory based with the final session being a mild physical session. Upon completion, participants will become a Security Support Officer affiliated to CST. To become affiliated to CST, participants must be aged between 18 and 65, but we do appreciate some people fall outside the age range. For those that do, they can still attend the training and benefit from the knowledge gained but for insurance reasons, will not be affiliated to CST on completion.


The course takes place over three evenings on consecutive weeks, Monday 2nd September, Monday 9th September and Monday 16th September. Each session will begin at 7pm.


In order to be a participate on the course you MUST please first complete the online registration form on CST’s website which can be found here:  https://cst.org.uk/courses/level-1-course-m019-north-manchester-september-2019


Once CST has received and approved your application, you will receive a confirmation email. Unfortunately, we will not be able to admit anyone for training who has not gone through this application procedure.


Should you have any questions regarding this course or anything to do with CST, please do not hesitate to contact CST by reply email or by calling 0161 792 6666.


We hope you can take up this important opportunity to help protect our community over the Chaggim period and beyond. We look forward to seeing on the course.
