What is Door Supervisor Course?
The SIA Door Supervisor licence allows you to work in the private security industry as a door supervisor or security officer. Door Supervisors usually work at licenced premises but can work in a wide variety of roles including static guarding, manned guarding, key holding etc.
With the SIA Door Supervisor licence you can work in bars, clubs, pubs, restaurants, warehouses, retail outlets, shops, shopping centres, office buildings and many other places.
NOTE: We highly recommend the SIA Door Supervisor licence course over the SIA Security Guarding licence course. Whilst a licensed door supervisor can act as a security guard, a security guard even with the required license cannot take the place of a door supervisor.
Obtaining the Level 2 Door Supervisor qualification is the first step towards getting an SIA Licence to work in the security industry. If you are looking to work in the Security industry as a Security Guard or a Door Supervisor, this is the right course for you.
