Tavcom Training has announced a partnership with the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB). The former will provide registered firms of the professional certification body with access to technical security training as part of a long-term initiative designed to raise standards throughout the UK’s security industry. The first joint activity is a BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Mains Compliance.
SSAIB CEO Alex Carmichael commented: “Training is essential to the security industry as it helps to ensure that high standards are met and exceeded. However, as a professional certification body the SSAIB doesn’t deliver training. By linking up with Tavcom Training, we’re able to provide our 1,800 registered firms with the opportunity to access the industry training that their colleagues may need.”
The SSAIB and Tavcom previously joined forces in support of the Certified Technical Security Professionals (CTSP) Register, which recognises the competency of individuals fulfilling technical roles in the electronic security and fire sectors (the CTSP Register is operated by Tavcom). Carmichael added: “The CTSP Register is an excellent initiative that has had the full endorsement of the SSAIB from Day One. Our certification provides a recognised mark of excellence for organisations, while CTSP maintains a register of individuals that meet a high level of proficiency. Together, we’re helping to maintain standards and professionalise this vitally important industry.”
Andrew Saywell, group sales manager at Tavcom, stated: “The Mains Compliance course is the first initiative in what we expect to be a long and successful partnership between two leading organisations in the security industry united in their ambition to maintain the very highest standards of practice through accredited training and certification.”
The next one-day Mains Compliance course takes place on 30 March at the headquarters of the SSAIB in Whitley Bay. It’s suited to all those individuals who work on or near a live electrical supply and need to ensure that they’re a ‘competent person’ under the terms of the Electricity at Work Regulations.
