Why complete the Upskilling (Physical Intervention) Course?
Before August 2010 the Door Supervisor course was simply a theory course assessed by 3 multiple choice exams. The SIA felt that this was not enough and in August 2010 made changes to the Door Supervisor course and introduced physical intervention – some moves and techniques that can be used to protect yourself while working on the job. The problem was that after August 2010 there were Door Supervisors that had been trained in Physical Intervention and those who had not. The SIA decided to introduce upskilling to get those Door Supervisors who had not done the Physical Intervention as part of their previous course up to speed with the Physical Intervention.
Where can I work with a Upskilling (Physical Intervention) licence?
This course is all around physical intervention in which you will learn SIA approved techniques to deal with difficult situations in a legal manner when all attempts at communication fail. There is also a little bit of theory to complete as part of the course, it is around some basic first aid, working with young people and counter terrorism.
