New Door Supervisor UP Skilling with PI physical intervention for licence renewal
Effective from 1st January 2015
This qualification is developed for all those door supervisors who have done their qualification before 31 Aug. 2010. Once these door supervisors have to renew their SIA door supervision licence they would be required to do this TOP UP unit which meets the regulators criteria for CPD and thus would enable to renew their SIA door supervision licence.
Structure of the SIA door supervisor refresher training course
The qualification is made up two units which includes a safety awareness workbook for the learner and the physical intervention module. The need for this qualification was felt because all those learners having previous qualifications did not do the physical intervention skills module which has been made a mandatory unit for the current door supervision qualification.
Learner Entry Requirements
This qualification is a regulatory requirement for relevant Door Supervisors, therefore, learners must have a Door Supervisors SIA licence. It is the centre’s responsibility to check this and ensure that relevant records are available for audit purposes Security operatives are likely in the course of their work to be required to make calls to the emergency services or need to communicate to resolve a conflict. It is essential that security operatives are able to communicate clearly.
The qualification comprises 4 mandatory units:
- Unit 1 – Safety Awareness for Door Supervisors within the Private Security Industry

Centers must adhere to the conditions for delivery and assessment as listed in the SIA’s “Introduction to Learning Leading Towards Licence-linked Qualifications.
