The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) has launched an eLearning course to help NSI approved companies understand and apply the requirements of the revised Code of Practice BS 7858:2019 ‘Screening of Individuals Working in a Secure Environment’.

This introductory course is available to all who wish to enrol, but is particularly useful for screening administrators and controllers. Accredited by the Security Institute’s CPD Scheme, the course includes guidance on: information and documentation requirements; relevant legislation and regulatory requirements; the difference between personal opinion and fact; and the implications of non-compliance.

Upon completion of the course learners will understand the reasons for screening; be able to assist in developing an effective screening process; and understand how to apply the requirements in practice. Each learner will receive a personalised Certificate of Completion.

Split into four parts, the eLearning course will take approximately two hours to complete, and learners may log in and out as many times as they wish, saving their progress each time.

Max Linnemann, Head of Certification Services said, “Our eLearning Screening course provides a cost-effective and convenient way of understanding the latest requirements of BS 7858:2019, which NSI approved companies in the security systems and guarding services sectors need to be aware of.”
