Door Supervision with SIA Licence

Door Supervisors are often the first point of contact between many businesses and members of the public. It is important therefore that they are effectively trained and meet legal requirements in what can be a challenging environment. 

Any business selling alcohol, including small pubs, retailers, large nightclubs, cafés, restaurants, hotels and sports facilities may need trained security staff qualified as door supervisors who hold an SIA Licence. A Level 2 Award for Door Supervisors in the Private Security Industry qualification is required by law, for an individual to apply for a SIA Licence to work as a Door Supervisor.

Learners will attend a robust training package, gaining the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to develop their career within the Security Industry.
