SIA Security Licence Training


We can help you get an SIA Licence and a rewarding, well paid job in security.



A19 Skills deliver SIA Security Training and Personal Licence Training to individuals wanting to work in  security, to security companies and organisations who’s staff need to be licensed. Since 2004 anyone working in a licensable sector needs a valid SIA licence to work in the security sector. To get a licence, you will need a certificate of training and a background criminality check. The licensable sectors include Door Supervision, Security Guarding, CCTV, Cash and Valuables in Transit (CVIT), Close Protection and A19 Skills are able to offer SIA training in each of these sectors.


Security 1

All the above sectors are regulated by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and anyone working in the UK must hold a valid SIA Licence. It’s a criminal offence to work unlicensed and/or to employ an unlicensed operative.

We’re one of the longest running providers of SIA licence training in Wales- the preferred training provider of many well known security companies and licensed premises. Our well established links with security providers give you the best chances of finding work.




SIA Upskilling and Physical Intervention

If you had an SIA licence between 2004 and 2010 you’ll need to do the Level 2 Upskilling course for SIA licence holders before a licence renewal will be granted.


The course lasts 1 day and covers content that has changed since licensing was first introduced in 2004 including developments in counterterrorism, first aid and protection of children and young persons.

The other main development is the introduction of Physical Intervention training and is also covered in this one day training course. The SIA recognise that security staff may need to use physical intervention as part of their role and this training is about safety awareness for yourself as a security operative and the public.

A19 Skills deliver these programmes as open courses for single learners as well as across the UK for groups of 5 or more. Click here to make an enquiry if you and your team of 5 or more would like to train together in a single day at your place of work or at one of our delivery sites.
