DURATION AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Unit 1: Physical Intervention Skills for the Private Security Industry
This unit is assessed in two parts. Part one is a practical test and part two is a written True/False test, set by the awarding body and marked by the tutor.
Unit 2: Safety Awareness for Door Supervisors
This unit is assessed by a 15-question multiple-choice examination which is externally set and externally assessed. Examination duration is 30 minutes and successful learners must achieve a score of at least 70% to pass.
Upon successful completion candidates will receive a Level 2 Award for Upskilling Door Supervisors.
This qualification is supported by the SIA to meet the mandatory top-up requirements for Door Supervisors who undertook their qualification prior to the current Door Supervision qualifications and who need to renew their licence.
WHY GET THIS QUALIFICATION
Knowing how to escort people from premises safely is important to door supervisors, who may have to deal with this type of situation as part of their role. Being trained in the appropriate techniques and how to use them will help door staff to manage difficult situations, minimising the risk of injury to members of the public and to themselves.
From 4th February 2013, safety awareness and physical intervention training has become mandatory for door supervisors who trained prior to the introduction of the new qualification in 2010 and they will need to pass the both course modules before they can renew their licence.
