Upcoming changes to security qualifications

Many of you in the security sector will already be well aware of proposed changes to security qualifications from 1 April 2020, particularly around first-aid requirements.

While some details are still being finalised, the Security Industry Authority (SIA) will require new SIA licence applicants to complete an emergency first aid at work qualification.

Highfield is currently updating its security qualifications to take account of the changes, and we fully anticipate having them ready for delivery from 1 April 2020.

Likewise, we are updating a number of our related publications. These are:

  • Highfield Level 2 Award for CCTV Operators (Public Space Surveillance) in the Private Security Industry
  • Highfield Level 2 Award for Door Supervisors in the Private Security Industry
  • Highfield Level 2 Award for Security Officers in the Private Security Industry
  • Highfield Level 3 Award for Physical Intervention Trainers in the Private Security Industry

Again, these will be available from 1 April 2020. However, both our upskilling resources and slide presentation for door supervisors will be withdrawn, as these will no longer be required.

We recently held a webinar explaining the expected changes to administrative tasks for centres delivering the updated qualifications.
