SIA Licence Training in Cardiff

The 2001 Security Industry Act specifies several security sectors that require an SIA licence holder to undertake. To apply for an SIA licence you must complete a SIA regulated/endorsed course and complete relevant modules related to the type of licence you require. Previous qualifications can be considered and exempt you from some SIA training in Cardiff but you must meet SIA standards or you will be rejected on your SIA licence application.

The current sectors which require an SIA licence in Cardiff are:

  • Manned guarding
  • Cash and Valuables in Transit
  • Close Protection
  • Door Supervision
  • Public Space Surveillance (CCTV)
  • Security Guard
  • Immobilisation, restriction and removal of vehicles
  • Key Holding

You can apply for two types of licences when you complete your SIA training in Cardiff, a front line licence which is issued to anyone working as a security guard on the front line (all of the above) or a non-front line licence for individuals who manages security activities, such as a director, partner or supervisor. You will need to meet certain standards for each licence, which should be set out by your SIA training provider in Cardiff.

Most licences cost around £245 for a three-year period. This may be included in the training received, but you may just pay for the actual training course you undertake. Vehicle immobliser licences, however, are only issued for one year. You can claim tax relief if you pay for the licence yourself.
