Can a door supervisor work as a security guard?

Yes, a door supervisor can work as a normal security guard on the contrary a normal security guard cannot work as a door supervisor, as door supervisors need to work in licensed premises. In order for him to work in licensed premises, he needs to undergo the required training.

Door supervisor course or security guard course?

In our opinion, the door supervisor qualification is better and is good value for money that you spend. A door supervisor can do all the work that a normal security guard can do, but in addition to that, he can also work in licensed premises, which include where alcohol is dealt with. Thus if you intend to join the security industry then we recommend that you do the SIA door supervisor course rather than the security guard course.

Your Licence will last for 3 years and you have you renew it by doing a refresher course.

Qs. What does the SIA check when applying for a Door Supervisor licence?
