Tavcom Training has announced that the Professional Register of Certified Technical Security Professionals (CTSP) has already received over 200 applications from those looking to join the Register since its launch on Friday 1 September. The CTSP Register has been endorsed in the UK by the British Security Industry Association and the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board, as well as internationally by Dubai’s Security Industry Regulatory Agency, and represents the only opportunity for installers and those who maintain security/fire safety systems to be officially recognised for their competencies and qualifications on a public register.
CTSP Registrar Kevin Matthew stated: “We’re delighted that so many security professionals have seized the opportunity to have their qualifications, competency and experience recognised on the CTSP Register. The industry is now a step closer to raising professional standards in the technical security sector. However, our ultimate ambition is for every practitioner to reach the CTSP standard and take their place on the Professional Register.”
All applications are strictly assessed by the Registration Manager to ensure only those with the necessary credentials are admitted to the Register. The core disciplines covered by the CTSP include video surveillance systems (CCTV), access control, intruder and hold-up alarms and fire alarm systems.
The publicly-searchable Register lists Registrants and the discipline in which they’re qualified, enabling end users and employers alike to confidently select a qualified technical security professional.
The CTSP application process is conducted online and costs £25, with a £50 annual registration fee payable upon successful admittance to the Register. The Registrant then becomes part of a certified professional network and has the right to use post-nominals (eg John Smith CTSP) and display the CTSP logo on promotional materials.
