Door Supervisor Training Course
The Door Supervisor Training Course is required to obtain your SIA Door Supervisor Licence. This 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 Training Course over the SIA Security Guarding Training Course. While a Licensed Door Supervisor can work as a Security Guard, a licensed Security Guard is unable to work as 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.
