Security Guard Virtual Training










The Security Guard Training Course is required if you want to obtain the SIA Security Guarding Licence which allows you to work in the private security industry as a security officer. Security Officers can work in a wide variety of roles including static guarding, manned guarding and key holding.

Difference between Security Guarding and Door Supervision

You may be wondering the difference between Security Guarding and Door Supervision. It is important to understand this difference as Security Guards cannot work as Door Supervisors. However, Door Supervisors can work as Security Guards.

It is important to note that Security Guard licence holders cannot work in licensed premises. We, therefore, recommend doing the SIA Door Supervisor licence course as it is a better investment with more job prospects.

Career Progression for Security Guards

Career prospect

In addition to corporate establishments, private residences and other organisations, any business selling alcohol, including small pubs, retailers, large nightclubs, cafés, restaurants, hotels and sports facilities may need trained security staff qualified as door supervisors who hold an SIA licence.
