This page presents some of the more frequently asked questions we encounter from potential students, training candidates, etc. interested in attending our SIA Level 2 Award in Door Supervision Course.
SIA Door Supervisor Course Questions
In the UK to work as an SIA Door Supervisor you must have a valid SIA licence issued by the Security Industry Authority (SIA). The Skills For Jobs Level 2 Award in Door Supervision available via this website is a recognised qualification allowing you to apply for your SIA license on successful course completion. The Level 2 Award in Door Supervision course is run over four days and has 32.5 hours of tuition with 2.5 hours of exams. Exams consist of four multiple choice papers with pass marks of 70% and a physical intervention assessment.
YES! If you work as a Door Supervisor in the UK without a valid SIA licence, you are liable to a fine and/or prison time..
The SIA Level 2 Award in Door Supervision offered by Skills For Jobs via this website is designed for people without any previous knowledge or experience of working in Security who wish to apply for their SIA Door Supervisor License, and those with experience working pre 2004 SIA licensing who wish to return to the industry and require their SIA License.
The SIA recognised Level 2 Award for Door Supervisors offered by Skills For Jobs enables you to apply to the SIA for a Door Supervisor licence, and obtaining your SIA licence increases your employment opportunities greatly. However, whereas other training companies can provide you with the basic knowledge needed to pass exams, the Skills For Jobs instructors 'ALL' have years of real world operational experience and demonstrate the real life practicalities of being an SIA licensed Door Supervisor. The level of training we provide is by far, the best available, so when you eventually start work, you'll feel much more confident and safer in your new role.

Certificates are usually dispatched 4 - 6 weeks after successful course completion. We aim to post your certificate within 2 days of receiving it from the relevant awarding bodies. We will send you an email once we have dispatched your certificate.

It's different in all circumstances for each person, we would therefore suggest you use the SIA's own licence estimator tool to check directly at their website: SIA Estimator Tool
Yes, you can work as a security guard if you hold a Door Supervisor licence, however you cannot work as a Door Supervisor if you only hold a security guard licence. It is somewhat like driving tests.. If you pass your test in an automatic car, you can only ever drive an automatic, where as, if you take your test in a manual car, you can drive both manual and automatic using the same licence. This in turn makes the Door Supervisor licence and associated course, much more valuable in the real world.
