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.

The training content has been determined by a Knowledge Needs Assessment and Training Needs Analysis, following a Risk Assessment of a Healthcare Security Officer role.

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)


Recognising prior training, avoiding training duplication

We respect that those who hold an SIA Licence should not need re-training on the same topics they covered in the licence-linked training.

So, we have tailored a ‘Top Up’ course for them that consists of just the ‘additional’ healthcare specific training elements of the Healthcare Security Officer Training course (i.e. without the learning required for SIA Security Guard licence-linked training.)

Evidencing due diligence

The online testing and examination processes methodically and systematically track training delivery, knowledge acquisition and comprehension, supporting Security Managers with a detailed, verifiable training record for each delegate that demonstrates employer due diligence.

Training Choices

There are four ‘courses’ to choose from. See below.
