In March 2012 the SIA announced the intention to require existing door supervisors who had achieved the pre-QCF Door Supervision qualification (for example the National Certificate for Door Supervision) to undertake additional training in order to renew their licence.
HABC have been involved in discussions with the SIA to develop a new qualification that will meet these new requirements for SIA Door Supervisor licence renewals.
The new qualification comprises the following two mandatory units:
- Physical Intervention Skills for the Private Security Industry; assessed by a practical test and a written True/False test which is set by HABC and marked by the tutor.
- Safety Awareness for Door Supervisors; assessed by a 10-question multiple-choice examination which is set by HABC and marked by the tutor.
The new Safety Awareness for Door Supervisors unit of assessment and workbook have been developed to cover the following subjects within the security sector:
- Counter Terrorism
- First Aid Awareness
- Dealing with Children and Young People
This course is provided by Eboracum Security Ltd – a Highfield approved training centre.
