Security Training

Security Industry Authority (SIA) licensing ensures that anybody working in the Private Security Industry is properly and thoroughly trained, with the right qualifications to do their job. SIA licences were created to regulate the Private Security Industry.

It’s compulsory for all of those that work in the security industry to undergo SIA security training, and possess a valid SIA licence.

ATR, with our experienced SIA licence course, and our highly-experienced professional team of former law enforcement and UKSF personnel, can provide you with the in-depth training you need to obtain your SIA Close Protection licence.

The Private Security Industry Act 2001 determines specific roles as SIA licensable, including:

  • Close Protection Operatives
  • Security Guards
  • Bodyguards
  • Public Space Surveillance (CCTV)
  • Vehicle removal, restriction and immobilisation
  • Cash and valuables in transit
