Career Change? Different SIA Training Options*

Career Change? Different SIA Training Options*

Often, people see divorce as an opportunity for change in other areas of their life. If you want to carve a career for yourself in the Security Industry Authority (SIA) then you will require thorough training. This applies for whatever area of security you want to get involved in. After all, you need to have the knowledge and the skills to ensure that you get your licence so that you are legally allowed to have the security job in question.


 
There are lots of different training programmes available today in order to give you the necessary skills, insight, experience and knowledge to flourish in the recognised qualifications that you will require and earn a greater income
. It is crucial that you give a lot of careful consideration regarding the training option that you go for; after all you want to give yourself the best possible chance of passing your qualifications the first time around and ensuring that you open the door to your desired career.
 
 
As mentioned, there are a whole host of different areas you can get involved in. These include the likes of close protection security guarding, door supervision, surveillance, CCTV, close protection and more. Once you have decided which area of security you want to get involved in, or progress into, then you will need to seek out the relevant and recognised qualifications.
 
 
For instance, if you want to get involved in door supervision then you will need to do a training course which gives you a Level 2 Award in Door Supervision so that you can then apply for your SIA licence. You can go down the route of an online MBA for other areas of security, especially the intelligence side.
 
 
When looking for a SIA training programme there are lots of things that you should contemplate in order to ensure you go for a top quality choice. First and foremost, as touched upon in the previous point, you need to make sure that the training offered is substantial enough so that you can achieve the qualifications you require in order to obtain your licence. Research the qualification and see if the companies training course matches the requirements of it.
 
 
In addition to this, the company in question should give a thorough outline of what you will gain from the course. They should give an overview of every area of training, what they require from you, what you will be learning and more. After all, you do not want to go into an SIA training blind sighted and not knowing what to expect. You need to be certain that it is the training option for you.
 
 
A further point which you will need to think about is obviously the price of the training. This is important because you will need to make sure that you can afford it. Nevertheless, this should not be the sole determining factor. You need to make sure that the training course in question is a high quality one before you debate price. After all, there’s no point going for a cheap deal if the training is not substantial because you won’t obtain your licence and thus it won’t be worth it in the end.
