Anyone who acts as the immediate superior of security agents but does not carry on a private security activity himself/herself must hold an Immediate Superior Agent Licence. However, this person is exempt from providing proof of having successfully completed the mandatory training. He/she is therefore issued an Immediate Superior Agent Licence "without right to practise".
What is an immediate superior?
An immediate superior is the line manager who represents the first level of authority above a private security agent and having direct control over the performance of that agent's duties.
An immediate superior does not necessarily have this title. The role is determined by the hierarchical relationship with an agent.
