Qualification: HABC Level 2 Award for Upskilling a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry (QCF)
In March 2012, the SIA announced the intention to require existing door supervisors who had achieved the pre-QCF Door Supervision qualification (for example the National Certificate for Door Supervision) to undertake additional training in order to renew their licence. From 4 February 2013, all door supervisors with a pre-QCF qualification need to pass an ‘Upskilling Door Supervisors’ award before they are able to renew their SIA licence.
This qualification comprises two mandatory units – Physical Intervention and Safety Awareness.
Physical Intervention Skills covers knowledge and practical skills and Safety Awareness covers knowledge of counter terrorism issues, first aid awareness and requirements in dealing with children, young and vulnerable people. This qualification is usually achieved by taking a one-day classroom-based course
accompanied by blended and/or distance learning. However, it can also be achieved through a variety of other methods, providing the recommended learning hours and contact time are completed.
Unit 1: Physical Intervention Skills for the Private Security Industry
This unit is assessed in two parts. Part one is a practical test and part two is a written test set by HABC and marked by the MTS.
Unit 2: Safety Awareness for Door Supervisors
This unit is assessed by a 10-question multiple-choice examination set by HABC and internally marked by the MTS. The duration of the examination is 20 minutes.
