Assessment

3 multiple-choice question exams which are externally marked by the awarding body.

Content

This qualification consists of three units, which learners must complete successfully in order to achieve the qualification, they are:

  • Unit 1 – Working within the Private Security Industry
  • Unit 2 – Working as a Security Officer within the Private Security Industry
  • Unit 3 – Conflict Management within the Private Security Industry

Entry Requirements

Security operatives are likely, in the course of their work, to be required to make calls to the emergency services, and communicate clearly to resolve conflict. It is therefore essential that security operatives are able to communicate clearly.  All learners are therefore required to demonstrate a good grasp of the English language, as assessments are only available in this language.  This may involve completing a short assessment prior to enrolment. This qualification is approved for delivery to learners aged 16 and over.  However, an SIA licence cannot be applied for until the age of 18.

Photo and ID Requirements

You will need to bring ID with you to be able to sit the exams.  If you have a current Passport and a photo driving licence these will be ideal.  Please refer to the ID requirements sheet which you will be sent with your joining instructions to make sure you will have the correct and sufficient amount of ID to be able to do the course and sit the exams.

Joining Instructions

On receipt of your completed enrolment form and course fee, you will receive detailed and informative instructions.  This will include information on the distance learning unit you will need to complete prior to attendance.
