SIA Top-Up Upskilling Training for Security Guards and Security Officers in Slough is a security upskilling course to keep your skills ready for modern security work.

It's not just a security refresher course, but a proactive security guard upskilling course that makes sure you can stay in work and keep earning.

Changes to security work introduced to SIA Licensing in April 2021 are mandatory, and that means security guard refresher courses in Slough feature qualifications you need to have. You need to take Top-Up Upskill Training before renewing your SIA Licence.

You don't need to worry though, because this security upskilling course is easy to work with. SIA Security Officer Top-Up Training gives you skills that businesses need to best protect people and property. Do the course, get the new skills, renew your licence, stay in work, and keep earning.


Who is SIA Top-Up Security Officer Training for?

Security Officers and Security Guards who are renewing their SIA Licence after 1st October 2021 need to take this course.

Top-Up Training Upskilling Courses in Slough for an SIA Licence include new knowledge. The refresher training for Slough security guards gives you the skills you need to stay confident and proactive working on the frontline.

With Slough Security Guard Top-Up Refresher Training, you'll learn how to control crowds, best practices for post-pandemic security, and specialist skills in recognising and preventing terrorism.

✔️Complete the supplied e-learning videos


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

✔️ Epilepsy

✔️ Poisoning

✔️ Burns and scalds

✔️ Record keeping


SIA Top-Up Training for Security Guards and Security Officers takes 1 day in class

Although Slough 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.


Stay sharp with the Get Licensed GuardPass app

GuardPass puts the power to progress in security work in the palm of your hand. With mock tests, insider tips and access to e-learning material, you're never short of the answers you need, whatever the situation.

Get the GuardPass app on Android or iOS, and you'll have everything you need to stay confident on the job.


Remember, you can't renew your SIA Licence after October 2021 if you haven't completed your Security Guard Top-Up Training. With 1 day of upskilling and refresher training for security guard work, you can stay in action without delays.
