It is essential that individuals working in the private security industry undergo a structured training programme that results in a recognised qualification.
As part of the SIA licensing function, individuals applying for a front line SIA licence must prove that they are properly qualified to do their job. If they don’t hold one of the SIA-endorsed qualifications then their licence application will be refused.
We believe that this will result in a more competent and professional workforce. It will also improve the public image of the private security industry and make it more attractive to potential employees.
This four day course is based on the SIA specification for core competency training for Door Supervisors, which covers the necessary understanding and skills required by individuals who work to provide a more secure leisure environment and culminates in four multiple-choice exams.
