FAQs - Training
What is the role of the awarding organisations?
The awarding organisations turn the training specification made by the SIA into training courses and qualifications. The training and qualifications are then delivered through training providers endorsed by the awarding organisations. The awarding organisations also accredit prior learning and qualifications and play a key role in the SIA licence application process by checking applicant identity and uploading details to the SIA database used as part of the licence application process.
What training is required for a Key Holding licence, and where do I get it?
There are no training and qualifications required for a key holding licence. However, the activities undertaken when you respond to a call-out may include those defined as manned guarding activities. If you undertake such activity you will need the appropriate front line licence and its associated qualification.
