You can still gain your personal licence with ABV.

In light of the on-going situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our face-to-face courses. However, you can still complete your training and gain your qualification with a fully online experience. Choose your course from the selection below, and we will do the rest.

Course Overview

The Level 2 Award in Door Supervision qualification is required by law for the grant of a Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence, which allows individuals to work as a door supervisor.

This four-day course is aimed at those wanting to work as a door supervisor in licensed premises. A Door Supervisor Licence also entitles the holder to work as a security guard.
