The Security Industry Authority is the organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry. We are an independent body reporting to the Home Secretary, under the terms of the Private Security Industry Act 2001. Our mission is to regulate the private security industry effectively; to reduce criminality, raise standards and recognise quality service. Our remit covers the United Kingdom.
At ATASS we can help you in your desire to become a certified SIA badge holder, initially before you can apply for the SIA badge you will need to have training and get certified with a SIA certificate, there are several areas in which you can get certified to apply for a SIA badge. This has to be done before you can apply for the SIA license.
However if you are unsure of which license you should be applying for, please “click here” and it will guide you via a series of questions to the appropriate license that you should be applying for.
The types of license that are available are as follows (Clicking on each link will take you to the appropriate page you have selected):
The activities defined as licensable by the Act are:
- Manned guarding, which includes:
- Immobilisation, restriction and removal of vehicles
- Key Holding
There are 2 ways to complete the application form, you can either fill out the form online, or order the form to come to your home address, however to use the e-form you will need to register with the SIA database, to be able to access this service.
To apply for the license yourself, all you have to do is “click here” and fill out the boxes with your name and address and an application form will be sent in the post to you within 10 working days.
We also realise that with all applications, sometimes the forms can be quite confusing, therefore we offer an in-house service where once you have received your SIA application form, we will sit down with you and go through all the form and explain to you any queries that you may have, as it is important to realise that if any mistakes are made, the form WILL BE returned to you, requesting that you amend any errors accordingly, which of course will severely delay your application getting processed.
As you can see the form has many questions and is very easy to make the odd mistake, so we aim to make sure that you do not make any mistakes therefore enabling you to receive your license within a reasonable time line and that it does not get returned due to errors being made.
Just to confirm though you will need to have done the course and completed the examination of whichever area it is that you are applying for, be it DS – Door Security, or SG Security Guarding, or CCTV Public Space Surveillance , all of these courses are available here at ATASS, we have courses running continually so you can be sure that from the point of registration it will not be long before you will be in class studying for whichever SIA course it is that you are interested in.
We have an excellent pass rate, so be rest assured that you are in good hands, with several qualified instructors, from DS through to the Physical Intervention Skills. So don’t delay CALL TODAY! Hope to see you soon.
