This qualification is developed for all those door supervisors who have done their qualification before 1 April. 2021. Once these door supervisors have to renew their SIA door supervision licence they would be required to do this TOP UP unit which meets the regulators criteria for CPD and thus would enable to renew their SIA door supervision licence.
