Update: IQ Welcome Confirmation of SIA Position Regarding Door Supervision Training

From the 1st December 2012, those providing training for Door Supervisors will be required to deliver the programme over a minimum of four days, something that has always been an absolute requirement of IQ for all of its centres.

Update: The SIA have now updated their website to reflect this stipulation http://www.sia.homeoffice.gov.uk/Pages/training-provider-info.aspx

IQ has previously raised concerns with the SIA in August that the minimum four day requirement for door supervision training was not being universally applied by awarding organisations in the sector. The concern was that this had led to a situation where those providing training over three extended days (or less) were distorting the market, and unfairly competing with those wishing to provide training to a more professional standard.

Welcoming the announcement, Raymond Clarke, Chief Executive of IQ said, “The purpose of regulation is to raise standards in the industry. I doubt that many of us would be able to learn over training periods extending to ten hours or more in a single day and am surprised that some have been willing to countenance the approach. If we expect customers, employers and indeed candidates to gain from and value the training provided, it has to be delivered and assessed to professional standards.”
