Tavcom Training adds CCTV Control Room Refresher and CCTV Legislation courses to online learning portfolio
23 December 2020
ACCREDITED SECURITY systems training course provider Tavcom Training – itself part of the Linx International Group – has announced the addition of two one-day CCTV courses to its extensive 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. Continuing Professional Development points are available.
The CCTV Control Room Refresher course is essential for security practitioners who have completed the Security Industry Authority (SIA) training and want to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing issues affecting public space surveillance. The course provides insight into the latest surveillance and patrolling techniques, new Control Room technology, incident and emergency handling, communications, ANPR and evidence sharing as well as surveillance camera Codes of Practice and operational procedures, data protection, privacy and legislation.
The CCTV Legislation course provides expert information and guidance surrounding data protection and privacy, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and dealing with subject access/Freedom of Information requests, the Human Rights Act, CCTV Codes of Practice, SIA regulations and licensing laws. In addition, the course covers issues relating to the gathering of evidence, digital archiving and audit trails.
Andrew Saywell, business development manager at Tavcom Training, stated: “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, but it’s also essential to have an up-to-date working knowledge of what is and isn’t permissible from a legal perspective.”
Saywell went on to comment: “As the technology evolves, so too must the regulation and legislation. This was evident in the introduction of the GDPR to govern data protection. In his last month as Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter shone a light on the governance surrounding the use of facial recognition technology.”
The two courses are delivered through Tavcom Training’s bespoke online learning platform and combine presentations, video and audio to deliver an engaging, rewarding and productive learning experience. Each course 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 CCTV Refresher course and a BTEC Level 3 certificate for the CCTV legislation course, or otherwise choose to receive the Tavcom certificate if they wih to opt for the non-accredited route.
The courses cost £275 (excluding VAT) for the accredited option and £125 (again excluding VAT) for the non-accredited variant.
The courses can also be completed at Tavcom Training’s state-of-the-art Training Centre in Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire. Dates throughout 2021 are available to book online at www.tavcom.com
