Language prerequisite

Security operatives are likely in the course of their work to be required to make calls to the emergency services, or for example communicate to resolve conflict. It is essential that security operatives can communicate effectively.
It is the centre’s responsibility to ensure that each learner is sufficiently competent in the use of the English and/or Welsh language. All assessment must be conducted in the medium of English and/or Welsh as appropriate.
Learners should, as a minimum, have language skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
Training centres must ensure that all learners have sufficient reading, writing, speaking and listening language skills before putting the learners forward for training and assessment.

ID requirements

It is the responsibility of each centre to have systems in place to ensure that the person taking licence-linked qualifications is indeed the person they are purporting to be.
All centres are therefore required to ensure that each learner’s photograph and formal
identification documents are checked and recorded before they are allowed to sit the
examination/assessment.
A list of current documentation that is accepted by the SIA as proof of identification is available on the SIA website.
