CURRICULUM FOR TRANSVERSAL SKILLS FOR PRIVATE SECURITY PERSONNEL
The introduction of a continuous training (education) program for the providers of the private security service emerged as a need in the results of several studies. The Report of a research on transversal competences of private security personnel, carried out within the scope of the project “Train Brain Soft – development of standardized curriculum and e-tool for private security personnel” supported by the Erasmus + Program of the EU, and implemented by the Chamber of Republic of Macedonia for private security together with the corresponding bodies from Slovenia, Romania, Norway and Croatia, also confirmed the existence of a serious gap, a gap between the needs that arise in performance of the daily tasks and the knowledge that was gained with the compulsory basic training for workers in private security.
