Securitay welcomes the new qualifications for our industry which come into force this year.
Extract from a statement from the SIA:
The private security industry is increasingly recognised as providing an important role in the protection of the public. This recognition brings scrutiny, and it is more important than ever that the industry maintains and improves its standards. It is crucial that all operatives have the knowledge and skills to deal with common risks in safety critical areas. A key element of our role as the regulator is to work with the industry to raise standards in private security. The new requirements will help to achieve this. The new licence-linked qualifications reflect what we have learned from extensive research, consultation, and engagement.
