The Security Institute announces endorsement relationship with iSMTA

The Security Institute has unveiled the detail of a new endorsement relationship with iSMTA, the International Secure Minds Training Academy.

Speaking at The Security Institute’s recent Annual Conference, the organisation’s managing director David Thorp announced that, in furtherance of its ambition to become a byword for educational quality within the security sector, the Institute has now reached its first endorsement agreement with a training organisation.

“We want to work with education and training providers who share our vision of an apprenticeship-to-Boardroom, full career education model for this profession and the International Secure Minds Training Academy meets that criterion,” asserted Thorp.

“In addition, iSMTA has been a strong supporter of our Manifesto for Professional Security and its championing of life-long learning, the promotion of standards of excellence at all levels within the profession and the promulgation of career pathways that help people entering the profession see clearly the pathways, options and opportunities that are open to them as they develop their careers.”

Tony Maher, the head of iSMTA, supports these comments. Maher added: “We’re excited about this new relationship. Education is crucial when it comes to climbing the professional career ladder, and we’ve developed an e-learning based model that offers people with limited time and who may be geographically remote to study for a qualification featuring state-of-the-art learning materials using the most up-to-date learning platform.”

Maher concluded: “The Institute could see the value of this in helping to develop the next generation of security professionals. In other words, future members of The Security Institute”

Learning tool for CCTV operators launched by CPNI

The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) has launched an interactive e-learning course for CCTV operators that’s ideal for those members of the security staff whose role includes monitoring CCTV images for suspicious behaviour.

CCTV operators face significant challenges. As individuals, they’re required to deliver consistently in an environment where technology is constantly changing and increasingly complex.

For their part, host organisations need to ensure their security staff are attentive, vigilant and motivated at all times. Effective training, of course, can assist greatly when it comes to increasing staff motivation.

Are your CCTV operators responsible for resolving suspicious activities? Do your officers know what suspect behaviour looks like?

The CPNI’s new CCTV operator e-learning course can help members of the security team understand why it’s often difficult to spot suspect behaviours. It explores some of the elements that affect those operators, such as vision and memory, how this impacts on what is seen, how it is understood and then subsequently acted upon.

The course explores ways of overcoming these natural restrictions. The learning programme also covers the consequences of failures and the effect they may have on how a given situation is interpreted.

In essence, this is an interactive e-learning package for CCTV operators who, as part of their job, are responsible for proactively monitoring and responding to suspicious activities. The modular course takes approximately one hour to complete and may be reviewed individually or as part of a group.

Downloadable fact sheets provide a handy aide memoire and there’s a certificate of completion available for personal development records.
