When you apply for a front line Security Guard licence you must show that you have had the training required of a licensed operative. This means that you must hold one of the qualifications below, or one of the older licence-linked qualifications.
More about applying with older qualifications
SIA-endorsed qualifications are valid for SIA licensing requirements regardless of which UK qualifications regulatory authority approved them. However, we recommend that you undertake additional, location-specific training if you will be working in a region not covered by your training.
Licence Renewals and Training
There are no requirements to take refresher training if you currently have a licence and you are looking to renew it.
