About the Upskilling for Door Supervisors course:

The Level 2 Award for ‘Upskilling a Door Supervisor Working within the Private Security Industry’ is a mandatory qualification for those seeking to renew their SIA Door Supervisors Licence.

This also applies to those who gained a Door Supervision qualification prior to June 2010 or whose qualification did not include the Physical Intervention module (this also applies to some qualifications awarded between June and September 2010).

Anyone working in the industry as Door Staff, will be required to renew their licence. You will need to take this additional module in order to obtain a valid SIA Licence.
