By QLSports

As the country moves closer to hosting the historic FIFA World Cup 2022, the first course of the training program for security and safety managers of the stadiums kicked off yesterday.

As many as 28 managers and their assistants are taking the course, organized by the qualification and training unit of the Security and Safety Operations Committee for the 2022 World Cup Qatar (SSOC), in coordination with the Sports Facilities Security Department at the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC).

The course has been designed after thoroughly studying the needs of security and safety managers in the facilities of the World Cup stadiums, Abdullah Al Mohannadi, Director of the Facilities Security Department highlighted.

The first cycle of the program seeks to raise the efficiency and skills of managers of World Cup stadiums in accordance with international requirements for security operations, he added.

Head of the SSOC qualification and training unit, Lt. Colonel Fahd Saeed Al Subaie explained that the program is internationally accredited by FIFA and the British Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).

The program incorporates the leadership and security standards in the UK and European Union, based on the principles of gold, silver and bronze leadership, which is applied in major sporting events, he mentioned.

There are two categories of the program, Al Subaie mentioned. The first is a seven-week training program for all managers and their assistants, while the second is a training program for managers only and grants the international diploma in the security and safety of sports fans (level four).

He added that the first category program, for all 28 managers and their assistants, consists of two parts. The first is a two-week part, which began today and will run until October 21, while the second is a five-week course and will be implemented in 2022.

He further highlighted that the training content in the course launched today covers the bronze and silver leadership program, which includes topics like: security leadership, risk management, security command structures, security and safety principles, human rights, field leadership, emergency handling, alternative plans, theories and practical applications.

The remaining five weeks of the program are scheduled to be held in 2022, where the third week in the program will focus on developing leadership skills.

The fourth week will cover the security sense and behavioral patterns of the fans, while the fifth week will tackle crowd management.

The training in the sixth week will be devoted to the major events management program, with the seventh week focusing on the final evaluation of the participants in the first category program through scenarios and practical exercises to determine their level of performance.
