Tavcom Training has been chosen by leading certification body the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) as its preferred supplier of security systems training.
As part of an agreement between the SSAIB and Tavcom, the 1,500-plus installation companies certificated by SSAIB will now have access (via the organisation’s website) to Tavcom’s online courses covering a wide range of access control, intruder alarms, CCTV and IP network issues.
The website also highlights an option available via Tavcom to achieve the City & Guilds Security Systems NVQ and underpinning knowledge qualifications.
SSAIB members will also receive a 20% discount on all Tavcom classroom and workshop-based training courses conducted at its Training Centre in Bishops Waltham, Hampshire.
SSAIB is the UK’s leading fire, security and telecare certification body, offering a wide range of schemes for providers of electronic security systems with the objective of promoting high standards and providing recognition for those companies which achieve them.
“SSAIB passionately believes that it’s imperative for all companies operating in the professional security arena to provide access to training for all staff, and particularly those responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of security and safety systems,” said Geoff Tate, the SSAIB’s CEO. “Professionally developed and delivered training is essential to any business wishing to succeed in today’s world, and the SSAIB has no hesitation in fully supporting the professional training courses developed and delivered by Tavcom.”
Practical and cost-effective alternative to classroom-style education
The Tavcom online ‘distance learning’ training courses approved by SSAIB offer a practical and cost-effective alternative to traditional classroom-style courses, allowing students to acquire new skill sets without having to come ‘off the road’ and being able to learn at their own pace and in their own time.
“We’re naturally delighted that, following an evaluation process, SSAIB has decided to approve our training programmes and provide an opportunity for us to promote them to SSAIB members,” explained Paul Tennent, managing director of Tavcom. “It’s a very welcome vote of confidence in our ability to provide first class education for anyone involved in the electronic security industry.”
Tennent added: “The 20% discount in relation to our classroom courses is a significant incentive for SSAIB members, although we anticipate that the online distance learning courses will particularly attract their attention as they enable security professionals to acquire career enhancing bespoke qualifications without any disruption to their day-to-day working life.”
