COVID-19 Update & Your SIA Badge

For Learners

COVID-19 Update & Your SIA Badge

Training Strategies are committed to supporting individuals into employment within the security sector.

At this difficult time, your skills and qualifications are more needed than ever before in our country. Security officers are becoming key workers in the country’s essential industries and they require more security teams for around the clock support.

To enable our learners to access employment quicker, Training Strategies have lifted their ‘No Reimbursements’ policy to enable applicants to pay for their SIA badge application early.

We will guarantee that those who pay for their own badge to enter employment will be 100% reimbursed for the cost of their applications.

We appreciate that these are difficult times financially and we will do all we can to make the reimbursed badges our priority, but we do not have an exact date for this to happen. I am sure you can understand this in the current climate.

The applicants who secure employment and can provide evidence will be supported as priority.

Please follow the instructions here to start your process.
