Course Description

Anyone wishing to work in the private security industry requires a Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence to practise. The BIIAB Level 2 Award in Door Supervision is a nationally recognised industry standard qualification and successful completion of this course, accompanied by a confirmed identity and criminal records check, will enable a door supervisor to apply for an SIA licence. This qualification replaces the BIIAB Level 2 National Certificate for Door Supervisors as of 31st August 2010. The unit structure reduces overlap between subject areas making it easier for learners to gain qualifications for additional sectors such as CCTV or Security Guarding as they will only need to sit the additional units. Endorsed by the SIA and regulated by Ofqual, the qualification is awarded to learners who successfully complete four units: Unit 1 - Working in the Private Security Industry (1 day) This covers those areas of content that are common across different sub-sectors.
