Private Industry Security

Essential qualification for those working or seeking work as Door Supervisor in the private security industry. The qualification is a pre requisite under the terms of the Private Security Industry Act (2001) for individuals working as Door Supervisors in the private security industry to obtain a licence from the Security Industry Authority.

A Level 2 Award for Working as a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry is a pre-requisite for those seeking to work as a door supervisor in the private security industry (PSI). Under the terms of the Private Security Industry Act (2001) individuals working in specific sectors of the private security industry must be licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA). One criterion for obtaining a licence is the achievement of a licence-linked qualification. The LASER Level 2 Award for Working as a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry provides full coverage of the competences specified by the SIA and therefore meets its requirements for a licence-linked qualification. A Door Supervisor licence is required if manned guarding activities are undertaken in relation to licensed premises, except where the activity only involves the use of CCTV equipment or falls within the definition of cash and valuables in transit or close protection. Licensed premises are those open to the public at times when alcohol is being supplied for consumption, or regulated entertainment is being provided. The LASER Level 2 Award for Working as a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry qualification is suitable for any new entrant to the sector without a previous award/qualification conferring full or partial exemption.
