From 1 April 2021, all the applicants for a Door Supervisor or Security Guard licence must have done Emergency First aid at work training or equivalent. The certificate must be valid at least one year from the course start date or if you are applying for a license for the first time.


On successful completion of this training course, you will receive an HSE accredited certification from the awarding body. The First AId Training completion qualification certification is verified by the awarding body. As SIA does not verify First Aid Certificates, your training provider checks that you have the correct First Aid Qualification before they allow you to do the licence linked qualification.
Your training provider also accepts the existing qualification certificate if it has a validity of a minimum of 1 year, but it must be in the list of First Aid Qualifications.

Assessment: There will be no formal examination but you will be assessed by a qualified HSE Approved trainer.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    FAQ regarding First-Aid at Work Training Course

    Do I need to send my first aid certificate to the SIA?

    No, SIA  does not verify first aid certificates. Your training provider checks that you have the correct First-Aid qualification before they allow you to do the licence-linked qualification.

    I have an existing and valid first aid qualification. Can I present my existing qualification certificate?

    Yes, your training provider will accept your existing qualification if it is still valid for a minimum of a year. It must also be on our list of acceptable first aid qualifications.

    Why did the SIA choose the basic Emergency First Aid at Work over full first aid at work qualification?

    We have to strike a balance between the need for greater skills, the level of risk, and the cost to you. That is why we chose the basic emergency First Aid at Work.

    Does the first aid requirement apply to security guards who are not public facing?

    Yes. We base our qualification requirements on licensable activity. If you are applying for Door Supervisor or Security Guarding Licence, you must fulfil our First Aid requirement before starting your application.

    First aid is already mandatory for licensed close protection operatives. They must have the three-day First Aid at Work qualification.
