Level 2 Award in Upskilling SIA Door Supervisors Course

This course is the NEW 2015 SIA Specification course.

On 6/3/2012 the Security Industry Authority (SIA) announced they would be introducing regulations meaning that existing door supervisors, who have completed the pre-QCF Door Supervision qualifications (the old 2 unit qualification), would need to undertake additional training in order to renew their Door Supervisor licences.


Who is the course for?

As of February 2013, ALL SIA Door Supervisors who have completed their qualification, prior to the new QCF format (i.e., didn’t complete a Physical Intervention Module) will be required to have completed this ‘Upskilling Course’ prior to renewing their current licence.

If you are unsure if you require this qualification, please do not hesitate to contact us for further advice.
