The reason the door supervisor course is popular is because of the obvious advantages of the security guard license. With the door supervisor license, you can work as a door supervisor as well as a security guard. The difference in the training cost between both of them is very little and the cost of their license remains to be the same.
The general idea about the door supervisor qualification and the license is that a door supervisor can only work in night clubs and pubs. However this is a misconception, in fact, with this license you can work at any licensed premises including night clubs and pubs, besides Asda, Tesco and restaurant hotels generally would be licensed premises. So in nutshell, a door supervisor can work as a door supervisor and he can also work as a normal security guard as well.
