PHYSICAL INTERVENTION & LEVEL 2 AWARD FOR UPSKILLING SIA DOOR SUPERVISORS

The Level 2 Award for “Upskilling a Door Supervisor Working within the Private Security Industry” is a mandatory qualification for those seeking to renew their SIA Door Supervisors Licence and who gained a Door Supervision qualification prior to June 2010 or whose qualification did not include the physical intervention module (applies to some qualifications awarded between June and September 2010).

The Security Industry Authority has made mandatory recommendations that Physical Intervention training will become compulsory for all Door Supervisor staff in the UK. Anyone working in the industry as door staff that will be renewing their license from March this year will need to take this additional module in order to obtain their new SIA Licence.

The Physical Intervention module is an SIA approved course which instructs candidates in non-harm escorting techniques applied to manage difficult situations without causing injury to themselves or members of the general public.

More information about Physical Intervention


The use of force is a last resort in conflict management, and SIA Training emphasises even when resorted to it must be reasonable force, only the necessary degree to prevent conflict.

The use of physical intervention is an accepted part of conflict management in this day and age, but the importance falls on your interpretation of the term “physical intervention”. It is entirely possible to intervene physically in a conflict without making a single aggressive movement.

The first thing to take account of is the meaning of the term itself. While it is true that a punch constitutes “physical intervention”, the term is so broad that it can also apply to something as simple as disengagement, where violence is prevented by a simple change in position. This is best used when aggressive behaviour has not yet reached physical expression. An individual seeking to pick a fight by “fronting up” to a security professional may be best stopped in their tracks by the professional taking a step back and adopting a non-aggressive stance, thereby taking the wind out of the individual's sails.

Physical Intervention may also take the form of simple restraining actions. If violence is clearly imminent, a security worker can take hold of the person about to commit the violence and lightly maintain this hold. This is an essentially non-aggressive action – although it does require some force – but it gives the person who may have become violent some time to think regarding what they were about to do. It may well be the case that, after a moment in a hold, they have no desire to continue their action, and had just flared up on the spur of the moment. There is some element of individual judgement required on the professional’s part here, as it may be necessary to read the individual’s reaction after they are released. The key to this form of intervention is that no pain should be be caused to the individual.

In extreme circumstances it may be necessary for the security professional to physically eject someone from the premises. The subject of this action may be behaving extremely aggressively, however a trained professional will be aware that they cannot respond in kind. Restraining behaviour should be the first response, and if this is insufficient to stop the subject, backup should be requested. Once the subject is fully restrained, a decision needs to be taken as to whether they be ejected, or held until the police arrive. Under no circumstances should aggression be met with aggression.

The only time when an act of physical aggression on the part of the security professional can ever be considered legitimate is when it is a case of “them or you”. If an individual is armed, for example, and will not be restrained or reasoned with, sufficient physical force may be used to subdue them to the point where they can be disarmed. If this physical force results in injury to the subject, then any case brought against the security professional can be answered with a defence of “reasonable force”, where the options to the security professional were limited by his attacker.

The use of physical intervention in a conflict management capacity is closely regulated within SIA training, and any professional who exceeds the boundaries laid down in law will be looking not only at criminal charges, but also at losing their job.

I signed up with Get Licensed's handcuff training course based on recommendation from a friend in the industry. He told me that I will get my money's worth and that I will pass the exams first time because of the quality of training. He was right on both. Get Licensed will defnitely be recommended by me.

I’d definitely recommend Get Licensed. I really enjoyed my training, learned a lot and passed first time. I’ve now applied for my handcuff licence and I already have a job lined up. Brilliant!

Just here to say thanks to Aiyehsa for her training at Jurys Inn Birmingham. Had a wonderful weekend with the rest of the boys. hopefully I'll pass.

I paid £150 for a course but they gave me a further discount of £30 because the course was full and they had to reschedule me to the next one. I attended the course a week later but got it for £120 and I wasn't expecting much but it was rather enjoyable especially for the money I paid. Tom is probably the most hilarious person I have ever met. The exams were a walk in the park for someone like me (university graduate). They also gave me like a £70 discount on a Handcuffing Training course. If you desire to receive a handcuff licence and qualify as a Handcuff Trainer, you will need to complete a Handcuff training - Level 3, that is an advanced course.  The only thing I disliked was the price of parking. I paid £7/day for parking.

All in all it was a great experience, the first day, and you know from the moment you have woken up that you have to be in one place and stay there for twelve hours regardless was nerve wrecking, saying that the trainer salman shah made the 12 hours seem rather easy to pass by, talking, interacting, question answers and most of all the even amount of breaks made it easier to spend the twelve hours. day two seemed to have gone by faster due to the layout of the course and the interaction of the lecture, because we know we doing something makes the time faster, and the trainer bearing that in mind always kept us motivated and kept us constantly doing something whether it was question and answers or group work, he knew that the trainees would not be able to just sit in one classroom and understand the lecture by just him talking so saying that his interaction skills were really good. day three well its exam day, starting off the day with the practicals was a good idea too it did not make the day seem like a exam day just another casual learning day. the trainer was good because he does this in a strange way with a passion and his level of knowledge gives him his good performance. overall this was the best training experience in my entire 22 years on this planet. thank you get registered.

The handcuff course was very informative - but I have to say that the delivery of the course by bas was outstanding. Being an ex military man of 22 years, his teaching style and attitude was one of the finest I have encountered for which he is to be wholeheartedly commended for. The course delivered everything I hoped for, and would recommend Get Licensed courses to anyone who wishes to embark on a security career. Cheers bas, hope to see you on another course sometime!

The whole handcuff course from start to finish was very enjoyable. Mr. Abbas who was our tutor was an excellent coach. If it was not for him, we would not have done so well. He teaches with a passion which is reflected on all his students including myself. He is one fellow who the whole class really respected. He gave us examples of real life situations which really helped to take the information in. He has a unique teaching style where everyone was able to interact and take part. The course material provided was good. I had such an enjoyable experience that I would consider teaching security courses and training in the future. From the start, to the end of the course the instructor motivated the whole team and helped those who were lagging behind get back on track. The notes which we took through the handcuff training were all relevant and helped make revision easier. I would personally like to thank the instructors for organising three of the best days of my life. We sincerely appreciated his honesty and the care he took to get us to succeed. My sincere appreciation to the whole Get Licenced team and AAB Training. Many thanks.
