Tavcom Training has announced the appointment of Chris Pinder who joins from the National Security Inspectorate in order to spearhead the company’s marketing and development functions.
Pinder is well known throughout the security sector having carried out important roles for the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) – where he served as southern region general manager and export services manager from November 1997 through until August 2010 – and most recently at the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), where Chris was external affairs director for nigh on three years from November 2011.
Speaking about his latest move, Pinder commented: “I’ve known Tavcom for as long as I have been in the industry. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute towards the future growth of such a professional organisation as Tavcom which, as the country’s leading security systems training provider, has established an outstanding reputation for delivering quality courses conducted by highly knowledgeable tutors.”
Known for its accredited vocational, classroom and ‘e-learning’ online training, Tavcom has grown significantly since the company was founded in 1994. Today, the organisation offers over 70 courses supporting the growth and development of security systems engineers and managers alike.

Upholding the UK’s first-rate reputation for exporting market-leading security products and services on the global stage, Tavcom enjoys a strong and growing presence in the Middle East, Australia, Africa and the USA.
“Every member of the Tavcom team shares a passion for supporting security professionals in the development of their skills and career enhancing qualifications,” explained Paul Tennent, Tavcom’s managing director. “It’s clear that Chris shares this ethos and we welcome the addition of his knowledge and experience.

Globally, we’ve already trained in excess of 65,000 delegates and we’re fully confident that it will not be too long before we reach that magic 100,000 milestone.”
