Banking Firm London
The client, having identified a need for security, having previously not had any was based in access-controlled offices. Due to several incidents where persons in the shared office building had let non-authorised personnel in, the client felt the time had come to have a physical presence which would work as a deterrent. We advised that placing guards at the entrance to the building and developing the concierge role to encompass a signing in book was essential. We also introduced wanding whereby persons coming in building were checked for potential weapons or objects that could be used to cause harm. This type of practise is optional and some clients we work with prefer this not to happen however in government concierges we have supplied this is often mandatory. The guard has joined the team and works in tandem with reception staff for access control, providing a first point of contact for the bank’s staff and customers alike whilst keeping the site secure. Since the introduction no incidents have been reported at site and the customer has praised our guard.

Different Security Licenses & Qualifications
A security guard’s role can vary depending on the type of security required and may involve certain license requirements. In some countries, such as the United Kingdom and France, a security guard has to be qualified in order to work at a large business or organization and hold a license that is recognized on a national level. This qualification is different for each country: in the UK it is called an SIA (Security Industry Authority) certificate and in Canada, it’s known as OSA (Overseas Security Association) certification.
There may also be other qualifications required by law depending on the country, such as driver licenses and first aid training courses, that must be taken before applying for this type of job. In addition, a common requirement is that one must be over the age of 18 and speak the local language. However, not all countries have a standard recognized license or certificate required to work as a security guard.
Titan Security provides security services and security guards throughout Europe. Regardless of which country we work in, we make sure our guards hold the required qualifications and legal training necessary to operate effectively and professionally. For example, in the UK all our security guards hold the SIA license and in France, all our guards have the ‘carte professionnelle’ issued by CNAPS. We also make sure that all of our employees receive the necessary training before they are allowed to work on-site. Our training includes topics like customer service, ethics, and diversity awareness.
To see the requirements and licenses required to work as a security guard in different countries throughout Europe read below.
UK Security Guard Qualifications
In order to work as a security guard in the UK, one must be licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
To obtain the license one must first attend a security guard course by an approved training provider, which is three days long. It consists of three parts; working in the private security industry, security guarding and lastly conflict management. On the final day of the course there are 3 multiple choice exams. Once you have successfully passed the 3 multiple choice exams you can complete the licence application on the SIA website.
What about the Door Supervisor license? – The SIA Security Guard Licence is comparable to the SIA Door Supervisor Licence, however, the key distinction is where you may work and what licensable activities you can do. You can’t operate in licensed establishments where alcohol is served if you have a Security Guard License (SIA). On the other hand due to the addition of a physical intervention section to the Door Supervisor Course you are not restricted in this way and this can provide you with more job options. The process for obtaining the Door Supervisor License is similar to the SIA license with the need to pass a multiple-choice exam after completing the course. Consider acquiring both licenses to offer yourself the greatest opportunity in your profession and stand out amongst other looking for employment in the security sector. So, while a Door Supervisor License gives you more possibilities for where you may take your security career, a Security Guard License is still an excellent option if you know what employment opportunities it provides.
All our security guards working in the UK hold one or both of the above SIA licenses.
Ireland Security Guard Qualifications
In Ireland if you work as a Security Guard or a door supervisor then you need to hold a PSA licence.
To obtain the PSA license an aspiring security guard must complete one of the QQI level courses (Guarding Skills QQI Level 4 Minor Award 4N1118 or Door Security Procedures QQI Level 4 Minor Award 4N1114.) The fee for this licence is €90 for the 3 year licence. When you have received your licence you will be placed on The PSA register of Employee Licence Holders and are now legally qualified to work as a security guard in Ireland.
Since 1st September 2018 applicants applying to the PSA for a licence must have obtained the prescribed training from a PSA approved Training Provider.
The QQI Level 4 course equips students with the skills, information, and theory needed to operate as a security guard in a store or patrolling factories, construction sites, and other locations. It’s also the minimum requirement for cash-in-transit workers.
100 hours of learning are required for QQI level 4 courses. 30 hours of direct interaction between the trainer and the student are included in this total.
All our security guards operating in Ireland hold the PSA licence.
Germany Security Qualifications
The private security industry in Germany like in other EU/EEA countries is subject to authorisation.
In order to get a security guard license, candidates must show proof to a chamber of commerce that they have finished an 80-hour training course on the relevant legal requirements for the practice of the job. In addition, guard responsibilities may only be assigned to those in dependent employment who have completed a 40-hour training course. Applicants for specific security tasks, such as those in the public realm, must provide proof of passing a competence exam.
The certificate of competence is required for specific operations in public or places with public access (buses, trains, shopping malls, city patrols), protection against shoplifters, and guards in the entry area of clubs/bars.
All our guards in Germany have completed the certificate of competence and come with years of experience.
France Security Guard Licence
To work as a security guard in France, you must have a ‘carte professionnelle’ which is the French equivalent to the SIA license in the UK. Anyone seeking to work as a security guard must demonstrate professional aptitude and possess a professional card issued by the Local Accreditation and Control Commission (CNAC) established within the National Council of Private Security Activities (CNAPS).
The issuance of the license requires completing vocational training from a training center authorized by the CNAPS. Professional certifications that allow an individual to work as a security guard in France are regularly updated.
We make sure our security guards in France are all fully qualified and all hold the ‘carte professionnalle’.
Hungary Security Guard Requirements

Unlike other countries in Europe it is mandatory for security guards to complete refresher training every 5 years. The training is provided by an educational institution of the Chamber of Bodyguards, Property Protection and Private Detectives.
We make sure all our guards in Hungary are fully qualified. Due to the mandatory training every 5 years, rest assured our guards are up to date with the latest security measures.
Slovenia Security Licence
In Slovenia it is mandatory by law that all security guards complete a training programme with a minimum number of hours (102 hours). Similar to Hungary there is also mandatory refresher training which is provided by specialised institutions licensed by the Ministry of the Interior. Upon successfully completion of basic training, private security guards are issued with a certificate of competence. The training can either be self-financed or financed through a company.
We make sure all our guards in Slovenia are fully qualified. Due to the mandatory training every 5 years, rest assured our guards are up to date with the latest security measures.
Norway Security Guard Requirements

The compensation measure will consist of completing the parts of the Norwegian security guard education and training.

Sweden Licence Requirements

Different Requirements Throughout Europe
From above we can see that different countries in Europe have different rules and requirements for an individual to work as a security guard. We can also see a varying level of required training. Private security agents must complete training before being permitted to work in virtually all European countries. The training might last anywhere from 90 hours to several hundred. The longest training requirements are found in Hungary (320 to 430 hours), Sweden (301 hours), Spain (180 hours), Latvia (160 hours), and Romania (90-360 hours). Slovakia, France, and the United Kingdom have the smallest training requirements, ranging from 32 to 90 hours.
In some countries training is provided through state intervention, while in others by private training providers that have been certified.
