What is the assessment method

Learners will be assessed by three multiple choice & one written examinations set by the awarding body.

What will I receive after the course

After attending the SIA Door Supervisor course learners will receive a certificate through our awarding body.

Does the certificate expire

Once a qualification is achieved, it is then valid to use to apply for the licence for three years. After three years, “assumed professional competency” will be lost and the course will have to be done again. This is first stage in the process. After passing the exam you then need to make an application for your SIA Licence which is valid for three years. An application must also be made for a DBS certificate. You can do a criminality check online by googling SIA Criminality Check and this will tell you if any convictions you may have, would impede you getting an SIA licence.

This course is suitable for operatives to work in Offices, Factories, Warehouses, Corporate, Reception Areas, Shops, Building Sites, Mobile Patrols, Pubs, Clubs etc
