What do you need to do after you pass your SIA training?
Completing SIA training opens the doors for numerous employment opportunities. You now have the skillset to work legally as a security guard or door supervisor or CCTV operative in a thriving industry, allowing you many possibilities and different directions you can go in. But you need to make sure you take the right steps after your training to ensure you get the best results.
Receiving your Licence
As soon as you pass your training, you can apply for your SIA licence. You do not need to wait for the certificate to be sent to you, you simply need the result of the exam. Results usually take about five working days to be released, and the certificate takes two weeks.
To apply for the licence, you need to fill in an online application form and be able to provide proof of identity and address to your local post office. Here, they will check your documents and take a photo of you, a signature and the licence fee. It usually takes 25 working days for an application to be completed and a card sent out.
What to do next
Make sure you have your new qualification displayed on your CV, on a document that is clearly formatted and showcases your skillset. You can find some helpful advice about creating your CV in this blog post. Once you’ve perfected your CV, you need to start looking for employment.
