Considering the security matter, the security guard candidates need to take some additional training out of the SIRA, which provides by different departments of the Dubai government

  1. SAFER FIRE SAFETY: Easily we understand FIRE FIGHTING is provided by another government body (Civil Defense) so you should pay separately. It costs you an extra AED 546.
