Upcoming Changes to Security Licence to Practice Qualifications

As part of the SIA's commitment to maintaining qualifications that are relevant and up to date, eleven security and Licence-linked qualifications are currently being revised and will be replaced by new qualifications on the 1st January 2015.
This includes the current licence to practice qualifications in Door Supervision, Security Guarding and CCTV (including the Scottish variants) as well as Close Protection, Delivery of Physical Intervention Training and Upskilling.

The current qualifications will be expired on the 31/12/2014 and the certification end date will be 31/3/2015. 

Centre that are already approved to offer any of these qualifications will be automatically approved to offer the new equivalent qualifications (as long as centres continue to meet all requirements).

To discuss the upcoming changes to the qualifications in more detail IQ will be hosting two meetings of our Security Sector Development Group in November on the following dates:


  • Birmingham - Friday 21st November (pm)
  • London - Thursday 27th November (pm)


More information on these free events will be available next month but if you are interested in reserving your place at either event please email Tom at
