Frequently Asked Questions


No, we do not guarantee a pass and believe no training provider should.  We are firm believers in raising the standards within the security industry and believe in the quality of our training. We will support our learners where needed to ensure they reach the required standard to enable them to pass the course of their own accord.  We have a very high pass rate as a result of this. 

If we have vacancies at the time you pass your course and we think you may be a good fit for our team then we may offer you an interview.

Your licence will enable you to work as a door supervisor, a static guard, a retail guard, a mobile guard or in event security.

You will need to pass all exams to be able to apply for your SIA licence.  In the unlikely event that you fail one or more of your exams then we will offer you a free re-sit.  Any subsequent resits will be charged at £50 per exam.

You can apply to renew your licence 4 months before your current licence expires and similarly you can take your top-up course within 4 months too.  You will not lose time on your new licence by renewing early. The SIA will add any time left on your current licence onto your new one. Your new licence will be valid from the day it is granted.

If you hold a door supervisor licence but do not work in licensed premises, you can choose to switch to a security guard licence. The SIA system will offer you the choice of applying for a door supervision or security guarding licence when you renew you licence.  You will need to have the new qualification or the top-up qualification for whichever sector you choose. The training for the security guarding top-up qualification takes half a day. The training for the door supervisor top-up qualification takes 2 days.  Please consider the day-to-day duties of the jobs you do and may wish to do in the future. If your work involves guarding licensed premises (such as a pub or a club) you will need to renew your door supervisor licence.

First aid qualifications that comply with the relevant guidance from the Health and Safety Executive are: First Aid at Work (FAW), First Person on Scene (FPOS), First Response Emergency Care (FREC).  Your certificate must have at least 12 months left on it from the first day of your course.
