Once you have passed your training course you can apply for your SIA licence. It takes roughly four to six weeks from the day you send your application to receive your SIA licence.
The SIA will verify your details and conduct a DBS criminality check. Once this has been done the SIA will make a decision to grant your SIA licence and you will receive it in the post. The SIA licence is valid for three years and you must renew it at the end of the three years.
