The SIA are introducing a new on line self-service licence renewal and licence application service. This means only SIA approved companies can submit licence applications. There will be two levels Licence Management LM and Licence Assist LA. With LM the SIA licenced company will undertake identity checking.
Training providers will still support a successful individual in completing their SIA licence application, however the individual will submit their application and create a personal online account, all SIA licence holders will be required to create a personal account by using an existing email address or creating an address.
This is aimed at providing a faster licence application and renewal service, keep individuals informed and up to date.
It is important to renew your licence in good time, notify the SIA any changes of address, loss/theft of SIA licence, as it could affect your ability to work in security.
