First Aid Training

Applying for your license requires producing evidence that you have had SIA recognized first aid training. Presenting your valid first aid certification to your training agency is a prerequisite to training. However, if you do not have such close protection security training, you need to obtain the recognized first aid award for your license. This training is completed in addition to the main training.

SIA recognized first aid awards are-

First Person on Scene (FPOS) Immediate Award

First Aid Response (HABC) level 3

If you have any first aid qualification other than the above two, you may contact Pearson or IHCD for accreditation or equivalence.
