The SIA Security Guard Licence allows individuals to work as Security Guards.

What is the Security Guard Course?

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.
