First Aid requirements for an SIA Security Guard Top-Up Training Course:
Completing this security guard upskilling course needs you to be qualified in Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW), or an equivalent qualification.
If you haven't yet completed an EFAW course, don't worry. You can take it in your booked course package and get qualified that way, all in one refresher course.
Understanding which First Aid qualifications count towards your SIA Licence is very important. Your certificate must be EFAW or higher. Make sure it's also valid for over 12 months as of the start date of your Security Officer Top-Up Training course.
Get a head start on your SIA Security Guard Top-Up Course with a First Aid Refresher
If you're taking an EFAW course during your SIA Top-Up Training, we can help you prepare. Taking a First Aid Refresher Course before your upskilling training day can boost your knowledge ahead of time.
Our First Aid Refresher Courses are easily completed online for free. Be aware that doing so won't give you an EFAW qualification, because you'll get that during your security guard upskilling course. However, you'll still learn useful skills like:
✔️ Taking charge and summoning help
✔️ Priorities in First Aid
✔️ Basic life support and use of AED equipment
✔️ Controlling bleeding
✔️ Burns and scalds
✔️ Record keeping
SIA Top-Up Training for Security Guards and Security Officers takes 1 day in class
Although Kentish Town Security Guard Top-Up Training is mandatory, it doesn't take long to finish your refresher course and move forward with your security guard upskilling qualification.
Unlike Door Supervisor Top-Up Training, your upskilling course only takes 1 day. Besides EFAW training, you'll cover:
✔️ Principles of Terror Threat Awareness in the Private Security Industry
✔️ Principles of Minimising Personal Risk for Security Officers in the Private Security Industry
These are the topics you'll be assessed on by your training instructor. You need a pass rate of about 70% in both of these topics, and you'll show your new skills with practical assessments and by completing a few multiple choice exams.
Overall, your Security Guard Top-Up Training is nothing to worry about. But remember, by taking a day of your time to do it now, you're potentially saving a lot of hassle and possible interruptions to your working life when renewing your SIA Licence later.

Security Officers and Security Guards who are renewing their SIA Licence either on or after 1st October 2021 need to complete the Top-Up Upskilling Course.
This is now a legal requirement to working in the security industry, because Top-Up Training covers new risks and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) knowledge.
