HABC Level 2 Award for Working as a Security Officer within the Private Security Industry (QCF)

This regulated qualification is ideal for anyone wishing to work as a security officer. It is based on relevant SIA specifications for learning and qualifications, and therefore provides the necessary skills and knowledge for learners to apply for an SIA licence in this field. Subjects covered include the roles and responsibilities of security officers, patrolling, security systems, communication, reporting and record-keeping, avoiding conflict and reducing personal risk, defusing conflict, and resolving and learning from conflict.

How long will it take me to achieve this qualification?
This qualification is usually achieved by taking a 3-day course.

How is the qualification assessed?
It is divided into 3 units and is assessed through 3 multiple-choice examinations.
These units are as follows:

Unit 3: Conflict Management within the Private Security Industry
Assessed by a multiple-choice examination of 30 minutes consisting of 20 questions. Learners must achieve a score of at least 14 out of 20 to pass this unit.

What next?
Individuals achieving this qualification will be able to progress to the HABC Level 2 Certificate in Providing Security Services (QCF), which provides the competency component of the apprenticeships in providing security services. It can also lead to further learning in other areas such as the HABC Level 2 Award for working as a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry (QCF) and the HABC Level 2 Award for working as a CCTV Operator within the Private Security Industry (QCF).
