What is the best combination of qualifications in security?
The reason why we say so is because there are so many people with sia security license but what is your unique selling point that makes you stand out from the rest of the crowd, security companies need people with varying qualifications and they need you to be dynamic. For instance if they are sending you to a venue where there is requirement of a security guard and cctv operator they might send 7 guards and 2 cctv operators, if the guards they are sending also have cctv license it makes their job easy.
You would definitely get more chances for employment at higher hourly contract rates if you are dynamic, thus it is good idea that you should have multiple qualifications e.g. door supervisor plus CCTV.
Training & Qualifications - Who Does What? (Benchmarking SIA Website)
Several different types of organisation are involved in the creation and delivery of SIA-endorsed qualifications.
Sets competency standards and specifies qualifications for licensing. Part of our responsibility for front line applicants is to define the skills and knowledge appropriate for an individual to start work. The SIA owns these core competency specifications and retains responsibility for their future development.
Endorses awarding organisations who wish to offer its qualifications, in conjunction with the qualification regulation authorities
Issues licences based on competency, probity and identification
Is responsible for the overall quality assurance of the licensing process
Consults regularly with stakeholders to ensure that standards and qualifications meet the needs of the industry and continue to raise standards of competence and professionalism
The Qualification Regulation Authorities
The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (OFQUAL) operate in England, the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) operates in Scotland and the Department for Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DELLS) operates in Wales. These bodies:
- Set standards for qualifications
- Accredit qualifications and place them within the National Qualifications Framework
- Awarding Organisations
- Develop qualifications and operate the examination system against the SIA specifications
- Achieve QCA/SQA/DELLS accreditation and SIA endorsement
- Approve training and assessment centres
- Register candidates and provide evidence of their identity
- Award the qualification and input data into the SIA qualifications database
- Accredit prior learning and previous qualifications
- Provide quality assurance of the assessment and qualification process
Only government-approved awarding organisations or chartered higher education institutions are able to apply to be endorsed to offer licence-linked qualifications.
Training providers are responsible for delivering training courses that result in the qualifications required for an SIA licence.
Skills for Security
Skills for Security works with employers in the private security industry to improve standards of professionalism and access to security training and security qualifications for people employed in private security roles across the UK. Further information can be found on the Skills for Security website. The sub-sectors include those covered by the Private Security Industry Act 2001 and others from entry level right up to senior management.

Sia badge is the badge that you get once you have completed the mandatory training for a particular type of license that you require. There are certain licensable activities for which you require to hold a license from sia. That sia badge will be granted to you provided you have complete the requisite sia training for any one of the licensable activities say door supervisor, security guard, cctv, close protection, key holding, cash valuables in transit. The normal training time for SIA badge is 3 to four days depending upon the licensable activity you choose to work in.
Get SIA License
In order for you to qualify for an SIA licence you need to complete training in any of the field of your interest e.g. door supervisor, security guard, cctv etc. once you have completed the sia course training the training provider will forward your results to the awarding body. If you qualify then the awarding body shall send your certificate for any of the sia courses you have been trained and assessed for instance door supervisor, security guard, CCTV etc.
How long it takes for SIA license
After you have done your training for door supervisor, security guard, cctv operator public space surveillance, cash and valuables in transit, key holding, close protection (body guard), once you qualify it usually takes a week for your certificate to arrive, once your certificate arrives for any of the courses mentioned above you can apply for your sia license, in fact you can apply for your sia badge even before that once your result has been published.
Physical intervention training
Generally people confuse it as a separate module; in fact the physical intervention training is part of the door supervisor level 2 qualifications. Previously the door supervisors were not required to physical intervention training. In 2010 sia has made it mandatory that the door supervisors applying for the sia badge and license need to do the physical intervention training as well. Now a day’s all the sia door supervisor courses include the physical intervention or PI module. The door supervisors who will be renewing their SIA license would be required to undergo this additional module enabling them to qualify for the door supervisor license thereof.
What should I look in a course provider?
In London you shall find a lot of course providers offering security compliant training in various security qualifications e.g. door supervision, security guarding and likewise CCTV etc, the question is who you should choose. You have to keep in mind your motivation to do the security course, obviously your motivation is to get your sia licence as soon as possible and once you get your sia badge your next step obviously is job hunting and making money. Here the right course provider kicks in cause if you go to someone with huge volumes of candidates there are likely chances that they might delay your security course certificate for a long time, so if your result is held by the awarding body then it means that you will get late to apply for your sia licence, and obviously if you are delayed from applying for your sia licence after even you have gone the training it means that you shall require more time to get your sia badge and the more time it takes it means you shall be deprived of the possible money that you could have earned.

How about jobs in security
The security industry in the uk is quite vibrant and one of the fastest growing industry as for today in 2011 the industry is employing half million people and the number is likely to raise as public spending by the govt in the front line law enforcing agencies and services are bearing the blunt cut in the name of austerity and if you translate it in terms of employment in security , you should be able to analyse that there are likely chances the number of private security industry services is likely to increase taking a lot of policing work. Besides you can always work as a security operative keeping aside your main job and work part time, you are likely to get enough work due to huge demand.

A Door Supervisor licence is required if manned guarding activities are undertaken in relation to licensed premises, except where the activity only involves the use of CCTV equipment or falls within the definition of cash and valuables in transit or close protection. A Door Supervisor licence is required if you are performing this activity on behalf of yourself or your employer or your services are supplied for the purposes of or in connection with any contract to a consumer.
In relation to licensed premises' means when those premises are open to the public, at times when alcohol is being supplied for consumption or regulated entertainment is being provided, on the premises.
There are two types of SIA licence:
A front line licence is required if undertaking licensable activity, other than key holding activities (this also covers undertaking non-front line activity). A front line licence is in the form of a credit card-sized plastic card that must be worn, subject to the licence conditions.
A non-front line licence is required for those who manage, supervise and/or employ individuals who engage in licensable activity, as long as front line activity is not carried out - this includes directors or partners. A non-front line licence is issued in the form of a letter that also covers key holding activities.
