Required Qualifications for Door Supervisors (Upskilling)

When you apply for a front line Door Supervisor licence you must show that you have had the training required of a licensed operative. This means that you must hold one of the qualifications below, or one of the older licence-linked qualifications.
SIA-endorsed qualifications are valid for SIA licensing requirements regardless of which UK qualifications regulatory authority approved them. However, we recommend that you undertake additional, location-specific training if you will be working in a region not covered by your training.

Older Qualifications

We will accept some older qualifications in support of a licence application so long as the following conditions are met:
• If you are applying for a licence for the first time - the qualification must have been achieved less than three years prior to your application.
• If you have previously held a Door Supervisor licence - it has been less than three years since your previous licence was active.
• If your qualification was awarded before June 2010 - you must also achieve the 'Level 2 Upskilling a Door Supervisor Working within the Private Security Industry' award before you can apply for a licence.

Licence Renewals and Training

• You do not need to take refresher training to renew your licence if you have a door supervisor qualification that was issued after June 2010 and includes the physical intervention skills and safety awareness training.
• If you have an older qualification that does not include physical intervention then you must achieve the 'Level 2 Upskilling a Door Supervisor Working within the Private Security Industry' award before you can renew your door supervisor licence.
