Places to get a SIA Licence in Leeds

The Security Industry Act 2001 means that anyone employed in a security arena must have completed a recognised security training course and have received an SIA licence. Many centres which provide training courses will be registered and allow you to apply for an SIA licence through the centre, or at least allow you to be eligible for a licence.

The Security Industry Act was implemented to ensure all security officers are well-trained to high standards to prevent harm to others or themselves due to lack of training. It also ensures employers who take on a security guard will know the applicant they choose is trained for the job and will not be a liability, as security is of paramount importance for most companies (particularly for arena security jobs where proper training is absolutely essential).

There are many SIA licence providers in Leeds, some of which offer standard training courses with eligibility for a licence at the end whilst others offer advanced training courses and apply for the licence on your behalf upon completion of the course. Most courses will provide training in:

  • Conflict management.
  • Roles and responsibilities of door supervisors/security guards.
  • Making an arrest.
  • SIA standards.
  • Health and safety.
  • Dealing with incidents.
  • Emergencies.
  • Fire and other emergency procedures.
