SIA Door Supervisors Top Up Training

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) have issued a news release regarding additional or ‘top-up’ training for Door Supervisors.


IQ welcomes the news that top up training will be required for Door Supervisors who took the old NQF (two unit) qualification. At the moment this is just an announcement, top up training will become  mandatory, but no immediate action is necessary.

This advanced publicity will enable Door Supervisors, Employers and Training Providers to be in a better position to implement any necessary actions when it does come into effect.

“We will be attending meetings with the SIA to discuss the implementation of the new requirements and any news or updates will be posted on our website. IQ is committed to working with the SIA on this development and to making the new top up unit available to our centres,” said Debbie Mallinson, Qualifications Development Manager.

To summarise:

  • This is only an announcement that the Home Office want the SIA to implement top-up training for Door Supervisors who have the old NQF (2 unit) qualification
  • It does not apply to Door Supervisors who have the new QCF or SCQF (4 unit) qualification
  • The SIA are currently reviewing how and when this will be implemented
  • The SIA strive to give individuals at least 4-6 months notice to obtain any training that they make a requirement.
  • The module will include physical intervention skills training, and there will be a requirement for the candidate to demonstrate knowledge in other areas such as considerations in dealing with 14 to 18 year-olds, first aid awareness, and terrorism awareness.
