This qualification is based on the relevant SIA specification for learning and qualifications and is supported by Skills for Security, the standards setting body for the security industry and the SIA, which regulates the private security industry. In order to obtain an SIA licence you will need to show that you are trained to the right level. This applies to front line staff only.
