Door supervisors are being reminded that they may need to take additional training if they plan to renew their SIA licence.

From 4 February 2013, all door supervisors with a qualification obtained before summer 2010 will need to pass the new ‘Up-Skilling for Door Supervisors’ award before they are able to renew their SIA licence.

Tony Holyland, Development Manager (Competency) said:

“In the interest of public safety, additional training, which includes physical intervention, will be a compulsory requirement for anyone who has not already completed it when they renew their licence.

“Being trained in the appropriate techniques and how to use them will help door staff to manage difficult situations, minimising the risk of injury to members of the public and to themselves.

“Reminder letters are being sent to door supervisors whose licences are up for renewal and we encourage those requiring additional training to ensure they have obtained the qualifications.”
