PerpetuityARC Training launches Linxville interactive online learning simulation for security practitioners

PerpetuityARC Training – part of the Linx International Group – has unveiled its new interactive and virtual online learning platform designated Linxville. Visually reminiscent of classic computer games such as The Sims and Sim City, Linxville’s first bite-size course to be launched is Perimeter Security. The course presents the learner with a simulated environment containing a number of commercial buildings surrounded by roads, gates, fencing, lighting and security officers which link back to the topic.

The learner is taken on a guided interactive learning journey around the site and presented with potential threat vulnerabilities, suitable risk assessments and information on how to handle the threats/vulnerabilities at each location. Bolstered by the feature of people and traffic movement, the simulation adds real-world realism to assist learners in the application of their knowledge.

Linx International Group director Angus Darroch-Warren stated: “Linxville is a highly visual and interactive concept that pushes the frontiers of distance learning. By presenting graphical mapped real-world security scenarios, Linxville delivers an immersive and educational experience that’s ideal for those who are new to security or have it under their remit, but have limited experience.”

Linxville is designed to grow and be fully inclusive and accessible. Darroch-Warren added: “We will be expanding the simulation sites to include retail, universities and airports all within the Linxville platform. We’re also excited by the potential scope for Linxville to be personalised in order to deliver specific security training for organisations.”

The Linxville Perimeter Security online bite-size course is now available here for £9.90 + VAT.
