Close Protection Top Up Qualification

From 1 October 2022, anyone who wishes to apply to renew their SIA Close Protection licence will be required to complete a new Close Protection Top Up qualification.

The qualification will be made up of four units from the new Close Protection qualification that launched in April 2022:

  • Principles of Terror Threat Awareness in the Private Security Industry
  • Principles of Working as a Door Supervisor for Close Protection Operatives in the Private Security Industry
  • Application of Physical Intervention Skills for Close Protection Operatives in the Private Security Industry 
  • Application of Physical Intervention Skills in the Private Security Industry.

We expect the qualification to be available for learner registration by the end of the summer. Centres that are already approved for the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Certificate for Close Protection Operatives in the Private Security Industry will be automatically approved for the Close Protection (Top Up) qualification.
