From 1 October 2021, if you hold a door supervisor licence you can choose one of the following options:
- take the door supervisor top-up training and renew your door supervisor licence
- take the security guard top-up training and switch to a security guard licence
In either case, you must have an Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, or equivalent, before you can take the top-up training.
The security guard top-up training is shorter than the door supervisor top-up training, so is likely to be cheaper. However, you should consider the day-to-day duties of the job that you do. If your job involves guarding licensed premises (such as a pub or a club) you will need to renew your door supervisor licence.
