Door Supervisor Security Training Course

security-guardsMake sure you book on the correct security training course! Before you apply for any job in security you must get the right SIA licence.  To get licensed you will need to demonstrate that you have been trained to the right level. (This applies to front-line staff only)

For example in order to get one of the qualifications linked to door supervisor licensing, you will need to attend one of our Security training courses, take four training modules and pass three exams.

The course may be delivered over 38 guided learning hours, 30 hours of which should be contact hours (as detailed below).

Security Training required  to get the SIA licence for door supervision qualifications must be delivered over a minimum of 4 FOUR days. Our Awarding organisation offering these qualifications monitors Focused Security Training to ensure that our courses meet this requirement.
