Tavcom Training and Banham Academy offer BTEC Level 3 training pathway to Trailblazer apprentices

Tavcom Training has partnered with the Banham Academy to provide a professional training pathway for apprentices on the new Trailblazer scheme. The Trailblazer apprenticeship standard for the fire, security and emergency systems industry is approved by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Now, Banham Academy and Tavcom Training are going further with the inclusion of professional qualifications.

The BTEC Level 3 courses developed by Tavcom Training deliver comprehensive security training during the three-year apprenticeship through a combination of online and classroom teaching, practical exercises, assessments and examinations.

Paul Tennent CTSP, executive director at Tavcom Training, stated: “Working in partnership with the Banham Academy, we’re ensuring that apprentices gain an essential understanding of theory combined with practical industry experience to kick-start their careers. Meanwhile, the security industry benefits from a steady stream of fully-trained and qualified engineers at the end of the process.”

The first cohort of Banham Academy Trailblazer apprentices has already embarked on the BTEC Level 3 training pathway. Kevin Faulkner, the Banham Academy’s operations director, explained: “We’re delighted to be working alongside Tavcom Training to ensure quality materials and practices are available to support the delivery of our apprenticeships. Achieving the Tavcom qualifications is a great way to measure the progress of our learners, while the accreditation provided motivates them on the pathway towards completing their apprenticeship. ”

Paul Tennent concluded: “We’re proud to be supporting young engineers and helping to bring new and fully-qualified talent to the sector. We also believe it’s vital that, ultimately, all Trailblazer participants have a level playing field on which to compete. Our aim is to raise standards in general across the scheme.”

Tavcom expands range of online training courses

Tavcom Training’s ongoing commitment to provide students who work within the electronic security sector with the flexibility to choose the best way for them to take on board essential industry knowledge has been underscored by the introduction of two brand new online e-learning courses.

Tavcom’s Access Control and Intruder and Perimeter Alarms online courses are designed to provide consultants and specifiers – as well as anyone who’s embarking on a career within the security industry – with the knowledge and understanding of how to design cost-effective systems which are fit for purpose and conform to relevant national and international regulations. 

Both courses are BTEC Level 3 certificated, with each course broken down into eight individual training modules to make it easy for students to learn at their own pace and in their own time. Collectively, the courses cover all the important aspects of either access control or intruder and perimeter alarm systems.

The Tavcom online e-learning courses are intended to offer a practical alternative to traditional classroom-style courses, allowing students to acquire new skill sets without having to ‘leave the road’.

“We understand that, in a competitive world, people need to manage their time very carefully,” said Paul Tennent, managing director of Tavcom Training. “That’s why we are determined to provide our clients with maximum choice as to how they may wish to learn new skills.”

Tennent concluded: “The development of these two new tutor-supported courses is a further demonstration of how we are delivering against that commitment by providing an effective, alternative option to our traditional classroom-style training courses.”

Tavcom is a leading supplier of security systems training courses for installers, operators, managers and designers of CCTV, network IP, intruder alarm, access control, fire alarm and all other types of electronic security systems. A wide range of technical and non-technical courses cover all security systems-related fields, among them security management, Control Room operations, system planning and project management, structured cabling, disaster recovery, counter-eavesdropping, PAT testing and covert CCTV.
