SIA Licence training: A Fact File

Posted by AngeloEverton on July 12th, 2011

Working as a security, guarding a commercial or domestic premise is a matter of responsibility that requires extensive training to perform. People who are in real need of money sometimes work as security guards in their leisure to earn that extra bit of penny. But, anyone cannot apply for such a job, unless they have the right training and license. Security Industry Authority or SIA licence is what you need to earn yourself some additional penny in your pastime. This licence is offered at the end of a security training course that gives one the permission to operate in any security industry legally.

However, a SIA licence is of multiple versions depending on the industry one is seeking admission in. Regardless of the version, you need to be receiving a certified training from an approved SIA security training academy such as The Training Circle UK Ltd. As far as the license is concerned, the training is composed of 4 Units and covers a variety of topics. For instance, the Door Supervision division demands some amount of theoretical work to ensure that the pass outs are able to recognize the duties and roles of elemental legislation plus. The recent Door supervision affirmed by the SIA has been revised and altered. 

During the summer of this year, SIA declared that the candidates who are willing to apply for the security training of door supervisor will have to get through a physical skill testing and training session of a single day to qualify for the training. This rule has meant the introduction of a separate unit in addition to Working in the Private Security Industry, Working as a Door supervisor and Conflict Management. All the three units are closely alike to other security courses like Security Guarding, Vehicle Immobilisation and CCTV. Thus, people who are willing to pursue multiple courses for the SIA license do not have to undergo the complete 3 days training for the second SIA licence.

According to the recent revision and declaration about the SIA security training module,  the company wishes to make certain alterations in the system to make it even easier for the pursuers. This decision of the company is likely to make admission into the security industry easier for the applicants as more and more people participate in this responsible job post. On successful completion of the training, the delegates will have to apply for the SIA licence that will certify their training. The process of application is simple and is in most cases taken care of by the delegate as it is dealt directly by the SIA.
