Tavcom Training – the Hampshire-based security systems training firm, part of the Linx International Group – has added two one-day CCTV courses to its online learning platform. The CCTV Control Room Refresher and CCTV Legislation courses are available now, with the option of accredited (BTEC) and non-accredited certificates, besides CPD points available.
The CCTV Control Room Refresher Course is for security practitioners that have completed the SIA badge training and want to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing issues around public space surveillance. The course goes into surveillance and patrolling techniques, new control room technology, incident and emergency handling, communications, ANPR, evidence sharing, besides the UK surveillance camera codes of practice and operational procedures, data protection, privacy and legislation.
The CCTV Legislation course covers data protection and privacy, including the GDPR and dealing with subject access requests, the freedom of information and human rights act, CCTV codes of practice, SIA regulations and licensing laws; the gathering of evidence, digital archiving and audit trails.
Andrew Saywell, Business Development Manager for Tavcom, pictured, says: “These two courses are ideal for every security practitioner involved in the use of CCTV. Not only is it important to keep pace with the application of the latest control room technology and surveillance techniques, it is essential to have an up-to-date working knowledge of what is and isn’t permissible from a legal perspective.” Andrew adds: “As the technology evolves, so to must the regulation and legislation. This was evident in the introduction of GDPR to govern data protection and, in his last month as Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter, has shone a light on the governance surrounding the use of facial recognition technology.”
The two courses are delivered through Tavcom’s bespoke online learning platform and combine presentations, video and audio. Each can be completed in one day, or at the learner’s own place, with online tutor support available. Learners can elect to have their training recognised with an accredited BTEC Level 2 Certificate for the refresher course, and a BTEC Level 3 Certificate for the legislation course, or choose to receive the internationally recognised Tavcom Certificate if they choose to opt for the non-accredited route. CPD points are available to all learners on completion of the training. Courses cost £225 (excluding VAT) accredited and £125 (excluding VAT) non-accredited.
These courses can also be completed at Tavcom’s training centre in Bishop’s Waltham. Dates throughout 2021 are available to book now at www.tavcom.com.
