Plymouth being a major city in the UK, has plenty of security jobs available ranging from Manned Guarding, Static Guarding, Patrolling, Key Holding, CCTV operator and Door Supervision. With a vibrant nightlife and plenty of pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants, demand for security jobs is rising. However, most SIA licence holders in Plymouth do not work in the night time and cover other roles.
The SIA Licence is very versatile and will allow you to work in many different roles:
✅ Bars, Pubs, Restaurants
✅ Music Events
✅ Festivals & Concerts
✅ Retail Security Guarding
✅ Office Receptions
✅ Shopping Mall
The course runs over 6 consecutive days and is divided into 4 units and covers everything from the legal aspects of working in security to the latest physical intervention techniques. NEW SIA Course Update (April 2021) From April 1st this course will become a 6 day course instead of a 4 day course. In addition, you must have a first aid qualification before you can take the training. This should be an Emergency First Aid at work certificate or higher.
