SIA Compliant Course

Physical Intervention

Duration 7 hours – 1 day

This qualification compromises of two parts and has been developed to meet the SIA Core Competency requirements for Door Supervisors:

Disengagement Skills

We will look at how staff can help to reduce the risk of assault through non-physical measures, and be able to avoid different forms of assault by adopting correct positioning, and their manner of approach. We will look at how they can disengage from the most common types of assault they are likely to encounter.

Safe Holding & Escorting

Occasionally, as a last resort, staff may have to legitimately use force to take hold of or physically escort a person off the premises. We will teach staff the holds used to protect them and also to avoid discomfort and pain to the individual.


This is in 2 parts: - a written examination (NOT multiple choice) and a safe practical assessment.

Achievement of the qualification is subject to delegates being successful in both parts.
