New Close Protection Qualification Launch Date

News

The SIA has extended the introduction of the updated Close Protection qualification to 01 April 2022.

The new implementation date will allow for full testing of the new skills before they are introduced. They will run a pilot in early 2022 with selected training centres. This will enable those delivering the qualification to provide feedback on the new bespoke physical intervention unit and make any required adjustments to the course before it goes live in April 2022.

The changes to be introduced have been informed by the views of expert stakeholders and reflect extensive research and discussion with the industry, including a public consultation.

Changes to the qualification includes new physical intervention skills for Close Protection operatives.

The new content will allow the integration arrangement that permits Close Protection licence holders to work as Door Supervisors to continue.

The SIA will run a series of webinars for training providers, operatives and the wider industry towards the end of September. These sessions will outline the content added to the new qualification and also provide an overview of the new bespoke physical intervention skills for Close Protection operatives.

The main benefit of Patrol Manager is that it is all in ‘real-time’, there is no need to visit sites and download patrol data – that information is old news whereas with the information from Patrol Manager we can monitor what the guards are doing at all times and react immediately to any problems.

Our experience with both the platform and the Logosoft team has been by far the best - having used several competitors in the past I can safely say that Logosoft software and customer service are second to none.
