Why choose this specification?

This qualification is for door supervisors who achieved a front line door supervisor licence before the current SIA licence-linked qualifications became available in June 2010. If their qualification was awarded before June 2010, or did not include the physical intervention skills module, door supervisors must take this qualification before they can renew their licences.
