SIA Door Supervisor Training

The Level 2 Award in Door Supervision – Course/Qualification Info

To work in Security on licensed premises you need the ‘Door Supervisor’ training qualification. Once SIA licenced, you will be able to work as a Door Supervisor or Security Guard in Bars, Clubs, Pubs, Hotels, Casinos, Holiday parks, Theatres, Music Events, Festivals, Shopping Centres, Building Sites, Commercial and Corporate enviroments and more.

On course completion, having gained your qualification, you will be able to apply to the SIA for the ‘actual’ licence. There is a cost to this (details on the SIA application page). Applications are also subject to a criminal record check. Once granted, the licence is valid for 3 years.

The AEGIS Skills Door Supervisor training programme is delivered over four days and includes some online pre-course learning.
NOTE: You’ll be required to supply proof of Identification (passport and drivers licence) and proof of your current address (e.g. recent utility bill).

DRESS CODE: This is a professional course and we would therefore ask you to dress sensibly.
Days 1 to 3: Smart casual would be fine. Day 4: Loose fitting, comfortable clothing and suitable footwear for a physical intervention. (A track suit and training shoes are ideal).
Avoid wearing expensive clothing due to the risk of damage. Vests and low cut tops are not permitted. High heeled shoes, sandals and steel toe cap boots are not appropriate.
You are permitted to wear ‘support’ clothing (e.g. wrist or ankle supports), but you must advise the Tutor of this prior to commencement.

AEGIS Skills PI Pt1

This course includes Aegis (SIA approved) physical intervention training (Aegis Pt 1)
Whereas other programmes stop immediately the boxes required by the SIA training specification have been ticked, the Aegis ‘Pt 1’ programme goes much further, providing you with more comprehensive training – maximising your proficiency and ensuring you will be better prepared for your role.

The Aegis ‘Pt1’ provides a higher standard of competence and self-confidence than other SIA approved training programmes and also includes a Module on Horizontal Physical Restraint (i.e. on the floor) – an absolutely essential aspect of Door Supervisor training currently omitted from the SIA Specification
thus meeting HSE expectations for physical intervention skills training for a Door Supervisor role.

Each delegate that successfully completes the course will, in addition, also qualify for an Aegis Skills certificate that reflects that they have exceeded the training requirements set by the SIA and have achieved the higher standard of competency required by Aegis Skills (and the HSE).
