Security First Aid Course

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) have introduced mandatory first aid training to hold a licence for:
- door supervisor
- security guard

This is taken from the SIA website:
"from 1 April 2021, you must have a first aid qualification before you can take the training required for a door supervisor or security guard licence"

To be a licensed security professional the required SIA first aid course is Emergency First Aid at Work qualification or equivalent. We deliver the following first aid courses that are SIA compliant:
- 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work Course
- 3 day First Aid at Work Course
- 2 day Paediatric First Aid Course
- 2 day Outdoor First Aid Course

This requirement was delayed from 1st April 2020 due to Covid. It now applies from 1st April 2021.

Full details can be found on the UK Government website:

We have regular open/public compliant SIA first aid courses running or contact us to discuss your requirements and we will be happy to help.
