Designed by Healthcare Security Experts …

The AEGIS training programme for Healthcare Security Officers is a comprehensive training package designed in collaboration with experts from the National Association for Healthcare Security (NAHS).

The Healthcare Security Officer Training Programme consists of 8 Modules.

Modules 1-7 can be completed online as e-learning.

Module 8 provides essential training on:

  • Protective breakaway and physical intervention skills (holding, escorting & disengagement)
  • Physical restraint (on a bed, a trolley and on the floor)
  • Safe application of Emergency Restraint Belts (ERBs)


The ‘Top Up’ training course is for those already SIA qualified

The Healthcare Security Officer ‘Top Up’ Training course has been tailored for those already SIA qualified, so as to minimise training overlap and reduce cost.

The ‘Top Up’ course content consists of just the healthcare specific training elements of the Healthcare Security Officer Training course (i.e. without the learning required for SIA Security Guard licence-linked training.)

If this is you, please see ‘Top Up’ training below.

Note: The ‘Top Up’ course would also be ideal ‘refresher’ training for those who have previously undertaken the v1 Healthcare Security Officer Training course.
