The Security Guard Course is required if you want to obtain the SIA Security Guarding Licence which allows you to work in the private security industry as a security officer. Security Officers can work in a wide variety of roles including static guarding, manned guarding and key holding.
NOTE: If you are considering this qualification, we strongly recommend that you take the SIA Door Supervisor course which qualifies you to work both as a professional Door Supervisor and a Security Guard.
It is important to note that Security Guard licence holders cannot work in licensed premises. We, therefore, recommend doing the SIA Door Supervisor licence course as it is a better investment with more job prospects.
