Sunderland 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 Sunderland 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.

How to get to your training venue at Sunderland
One of the best ways to commute to the Clarion Hotel Newcastle South for your training sessions would be to use a train. These get you fairly close to the venue. Some of the train stations worth considering include:
East Boldon Train Station
East Boldon NE36 0LP
Chester-le-Street Train Station
Station Road, Chester-le-Street DH3 3EE
Heworth Train Station
Heworth, Gateshead NE10 0LW
Out of the listed options, we'd suggest you go with East Boldon Train Station. This will put you a little over 2 miles from the venue, which is a distance you can quickly cover by taking a taxi. There are two routes available from the train station. Unfortunately, there aren't any buses in the area servicing that route. If you'd like to walk, it'll take you about 50 minutes to cover the 2.5-mile distance to the venue.
If you prefer heading to training sessions using your own vehicle, then you'll be glad to know that the venue has a free car park. If you are heading to South Shields for lunch, then you can stay at either of these safe and secure options:
The Word Car Park
River Dr, South Shields NE33 1JN
Charlotte Street Car Park
73 Fowler St, South Shields NE33 1NT
Forum Car Park
Elton St W, Wallsend NE28 8QU
The Sunderland area has a Walk Score of 38/100. That's because there aren't that many places for you to visit on foot since they're all spread far apart. Traveling around by car would suit you better if you'd like to explore the area.
If you'd like to find somewhere in Sunderland to stay for the duration of your training, start by looking into the training venue. Choosing to stay here will give you access to cosy accommodation with additional perks like the venue's free Wi-Fi network, swimming pool, and fitness centre.
