Mandatory requirement for Up-skilling Door Supervisors Qualification (Level 2 QCF)

Please see the following update released by the SIA:

“Physical intervention training is to become mandatory for all door supervisors when they renew their SIA licence from February next year. This training is already a compulsory part of the current nationally-recognised Award in Door Supervision introduced from June 2010. It is now to also become a requirement for those with the previous door supervision qualifications. From 4 February 2013, all door supervisors with one of the older qualifications will need to pass the new ‘Up-Skilling Door Supervisors’ award before they are able to renew their SIA licence. The award includes physical intervention skills training, awareness of terrorist threats, considerations in dealing with 14 to 18 year-olds and first aid awareness. 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.”
