Each unit is assessed by a separate multiple choice test which is externally set and marked by one of the awarding bodies, some of the body is Edexcel.
Assessment and Grading Criteria
Each unit is achieved by meeting the assessment criteria outlined in the unit specification. All of the assessment criteria must be met for the units offered; high achievement in one unit cannot compensate for failure to achieve all the assessment criteria for the other unit. The certificate is awarded to candidates who pass the mandatory units. There are no further categories of pass; the certificate is not graded.
Upon completion and submission of your completed exam papers you have successfully completed Training and Certification.
Door Supervisor Licensing
The Security Industry Authority process all license requests, this process takes from around six weeks for each application to be processed; this time starts from when a correctly completed application form is received (when SIA receives a correctly-completed application, they will write to the candidate in order to confirm that they are processing the application).
It usually takes one to two working days for a correctly completed application to be checked and scanned on to the SIA's system. Because of the high volume of applications being received this process can take approximately five working days. Complex applications (for example, applications subject to Criminal Records Bureau or qualification enquiries and those requiring overseas criminality checks) may take longer than six weeks to process.
A decision will then be reached on whether to issue a licence. They write explaining their decision and, if successfully granted, a licence will be issued to cover you for a period of three years. SIA can withdraw or suspend your licence at any time if you fail to meet the licensing requirements.
