Do you have a passion for security and teaching? Do you want to share your skills and knowledge with others who want to join the security industry? Do you want to earn a good income and enjoy a flexible schedule as a trainer?
If you answered yes to these questions, you might be interested in becoming an SIA trainer. SIA stands for Security Industry Authority, which regulates the UK’s private security sector.
SIA trainers are qualified professionals who deliver training courses to security operatives who want to obtain or renew their SIA license.
To become an SIA trainer, you must complete two types of courses: a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) and a Level 3 Award in the relevant sector you want to teach. For example, if you want to teach door supervision, you must have a Level 3 Award in Door Supervision.
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) is a generic teaching qualification that covers the basics of planning, delivering, and assessing learning.
It is suitable for anyone who wants to teach in the further education and skills sector, including security. It is also a prerequisite for the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (CET) and the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET), which are higher-level teaching qualifications.
The Level 3 Award in the relevant sector is a specific qualification covering the knowledge and skills required to work there. For example, the Level 3 Award in Door Supervision covers legislation, conflict management, physical intervention, and emergency procedures. It is the same qualification that security operatives need to obtain or renew their SIA license.
To become an SIA trainer, you must have both the AET and the sector-specific qualification. You also need at least one year of experience working in the sector you want to teach.
For example, if you want to teach door supervision, you must have at least one year of experience working as a door supervisor.
The duration and cost of the courses vary depending on the provider and the mode of delivery. Generally, the AET course takes about 4 to 5 days to complete, costing around £300 to £400.
The sector-specific course takes about 3 to 4 days to complete, costing around £200 to £300.
