Developed with installers, system integrators, operators, security personnel and specifiers in mind, Tavcom’s Bite Size Training allows security professionals to fill gaps in their knowledge without having to spend many hours researching on the Internet.
An award-winning provider of classroom-based, BTEC-certificated training courses, Tavcom has been a pioneer in the provision of online long distance training programmes which offer a cost-effective way for students working within the electronic security world to acquire new skills sets at their own pace and in their own time.
“Our online courses can result in career-enhancing qualifications,” explained Paul Tennent, managing director of Tavcom, “and they’ve proven to be incredibly popular. We’re now offering something distinctly different with our Bite Size Training, the objective of which is to provide Knowledge Modules that address key individual issues.”
Priced from just £9.95 plus VAT, each Bite Size Knowledge Module is totally focused on a specific topical subject. They’re offered in an extremely easy to complete format, and can fill what may be an important gap in a person’s knowledge.
“Participants will find that there is no heavy reading,” added Tennent, “but all they need to know is readily available.”
Details of the Knowledge Modules
To assist them with their learning process, throughout each Knowledge Module students are presented with self assessment questions. By clicking on highlighted key words they can view detailed information about certain aspects of the given Knowledge Module’s subject matter.
At present there are ten Knowledge Modules to choose from but, according to Paul Tennent, a development programme is in place that will see the list being continually expanded during 2014 and beyond.
“Each module will be produced with the assistance of our expert team of independent tutors and consultants,” explained Tennent. “As you would expect from Tavcom, each will meet the same exacting high standards of education that we have achieved worldwide with our accredited vocational training courses.”
Details of the Knowledge Modules available can be found on the Tavcom website (www.tavcom.com/cpd-courses/bitesize-training/).
When completed, each Knowledge Module offers two CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points. Subject matters includes the essential information needed to reliably gather video evidence, a technical guide to fibre optics, Intrusion Detection Devices, EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) and video analytics.
