Tavcom has successfully completed specialist CCTV training for 1,000 students attending the International Centre for Security and Safety at the Dubai Police Academy.

The International Centre for Security and Safety plays a significant role in the strengthening of the skills of Dubai nationals, not to mention local and contracted personnel of various nationalities working in the region. As such, it provides a range of vocational training programmes for individuals involved in the electronic security sector.

Under the terms of an ongoing agreement with the Dubai Police Academy, the training division of Tavcom is providing foundation and advanced CCTV training programmes for installation and service engineers in Dubai. The objective is to improve existing skill levels in order for licenses to be issued by the Department of Protective Systems of the Dubai Police Service to individuals and companies which will permit them to install and maintain electronic security systems in accordance with international Codes of Practice.

“To have provided training for 1,000 students over a two-year period is a significant achievement for Tavcom,” explained Paul Tennent, the company’s sales director. “We’re grateful to the head of the centre, Lieutenant Colonel Nasser Kazim, and the director of studies Adil Abdel-Hadi as well as their colleagues at the International Centre for Security and Safety. Their co-operation and support which has helped us to achieve this goal.”

Tennent added: “We’re looking forward to providing the same high level of training to the many other students who will be attending the Academy over the coming months and helping them to achieve the professional standards required by the Dubai Police Service.”
