Important Announcement for all Centres Delivering Licence-Linked Security Qualifications

IQ is pleased to announce that following the SIA requirement that the delivery of the Door Supervisors qualification must be delivered over a minimum of 4 days and that each day’s training must not exceed 8 hours the SIA have extended a similar requirement for the other licence-linked qualifications.

 

From the 1st of July 2013 all centres delivering the Security Guarding, Close Protection and CCTV qualifications will have to ensure that training is delivered over a minimum number of days, and that each day's training must not exceed eight hours (this does not include breaks).

The maximum 8 hour day does not apply to Close Protection due to the ‘real-time’ method of training.

IQ will monitor training providers to ensure that their courses meet these requirements.
