SIA Licence changes
The SIA will stop the paper based licence application process. Please find attached useful information that you may can put on your website and pass onto learners.
In January 2014 the SIA will stop issuing paper-based licence applications: this will have an impact on how individuals can apply for an SIA licence.
For individuals, the only way to apply for a new licence will be to fill in the application online at the SIA website; you will then be told which identity and other documents to take to one of over 750 post offices around the country to complete your application.
The Post Office will complete licence applications by:
• Checking and returning the applicants documents,
• Taking a digital photograph and an electronic signature, and
• Taking payment of the application fee.
Learners photographs and signature will be sent to the SIA electronically by the Post Office. The SIA will then add them to the application information already received and continue with checks in the usual manner.
Find attached a step by step guide to how to apply for an SIA licence for you to share with your learners and clients, please also see below for the links to the document within CentreZone.
