SIA Door Supervisor

What is special about this course?

If you want to work as a door steward, or as a security guard, you need to have a licence issued by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), which was set up by the government to regulate the private security industry, including door supervision.  Without a licence, you can’t legally work on the door of any establishment. The role of the SIA will continue beyond 2012, despite rumours to the contrary.
