Who Needs the License
A Door Supervisor license is required if manned guarding activities are undertaken in relation to licensed premises*, except where the activity only involves the use of CCTV equipment or falls within the definition of cash and valuables in transit or close protection.
What you'll learn in this course:
FIRST AID CERTIFICATE
If you are taking Door Supervision or Security Officer training, you will need to show that you hold a current and valid First Aid or Emergency First Aid certificate that meets the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. It is an SIA requirement that each learner is sufficiently qualified in First Aid or Emergency First Aid. This certificate must be valid for at least 12 months from the security course start date.
There are two types of SIA licence
A front line licence is required if undertaking licensable activity, other than key holding activities (this also covers undertaking non-front line activity). A front line licence is in the form of a credit card-sized plastic card that must be worn, subject to the licence conditions.

Duties of SIA Door Supervisors, Doorman, Bouncers, Door Security
Door Supervisors, sometimes known as Door Stewards or Bouncers, are responsible for the security of customers and staff in pubs, bars and nightclubs, and other licensed premises and public events. They keep order and make sure that the venue’s patrons can enjoy themselves in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.
Door Supervisors usually work in teams of two or more, depending on the size of the venue. One of their main duties is to ascertain the suitability of people coming into the venue. This may include checking age, identification, dress code, and whether or not they are carrying harmful objects or illegal drugs. A trained SIA Door Supervisor understands that the reputation of the premises they are working at is at stake every moment they are on the job, and as the first point of contact with the general public, they are authorised by the venue’s management to refuse entry to anyone they consider unsuitable.
Other Door Supervisor / Nightclub Security duties include:
- Managing crowds to avoid crushing and queue jumping
- Collecting tickets from patrons coming in
- Providing customer service
- Providing local information for visitors
- Patrolling inside and outside the venue, watching people’s behaviour and dealing with conflict
