Participants must also advise the Office of Fair Trading if they have been found guilty of a disqualifying offence in the past 5 years, where a conviction was not recorded (this is known as an “unrecorded finding of guilt”). The Office of Fair Trading may ask participants for further information to assess if a participant is a suitable person to hold a licence.
A criminal history check is one of the requirements conducted by the Office of Fair Trading when applying for a Security Licence. It is the responsibility of each participant to check their eligibility with the Office of Fair Trading prior to booking into this course.
