Get Trained as a SIA Door Supervisor with Showsec

Current advice from the UK government is to only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home) and if you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times. The SIA Door Supervision course includes instruction on physical intervention so we are not running training courses at this time.

We will update this page when we are able to schedule a new timetable.
