PerpetuityARC Training, which is part of the Linx International Group of companies, has now launched its Essential Security Practices online learning programme. The modular online education programme provides non-security personnel and those for whom corporate security is one of several responsibilities with a strong working knowledge of the fundamentals needed to help safeguard an organisation, its people and assets.

The Essential Security Practices course is the first of its kind. For their part, learners can choose their own path through the course, selecting the order in which they take each of the 12 modules and the pace at which they do so. It’s ideally suited to professionals in facilities and HR management positions or multi-tasked managers, as well as those seeking to develop a career in security.

David Gill MSc CSyP FSyI, managing director of the Linx International Group, explained: “There isn’t an area of business that security doesn’t touch. This means that an organisation is only as strong as its weakest link. Increasingly, we’ve experienced a large upswing of interest in our courses from ‘non-security’ professionals who are expected to make informed decisions that could have a direct impact on the security status of the organisation. The Essential Security Practices programme specifically caters for these demands, delivering the right amount of knowledge to be effective without trying to make such individuals fully-fledged security practitioners.”

The 12 Essential Security Practices course modules are Security Risk Management, Security Surveys, Perimeter Security, Building Security, Access Management, Video Surveillance Systems, Security Lighting, Protection Against Explosive Devices, Procuring Security and Managing Guarding, Cyber Security, Crisis Management and Business Continuity and Workplace Investigations.

The Essential Security Practices programme is available now and costs £295 per learner (including VAT), with individual course modules available to purchase at £45 (again including VAT).
