SIA Upskilling and Physical Intervention



If you qualified for 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 specification for this programme changed in January 2015 and now is a two day training programme.



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


The main part of this training is the Physical Intervention unit as the SIA recognise that security staff are likely to use physical intervention as part of their role in the private security sector. This training is about safety awareness for yourself as a security operative and equip security operatives with the skills to safeguard the public.
