Tavcom Training launches Advanced Body Language Skills for CCTV course

Tavcom Training has launched an Advanced Body Language Skills for CCTV course. The training develops the essential skills needed to recognise and read incident risk behaviour and have a greater understanding of people profiling, situational awareness and cultural differences when conducting CCTV surveillance.

The course tutor is Dr Craig Donald, a respected industrial psychologist with a specialist involvement in human factors issues in technology integration and the security industry. Dr Donald explained to Risk UK: “Delegates will take away greater observation skills and a higher sensitivity to incident risk behaviour and situations. They will have the ability to read their environment more effectively and identify potential threats or risks even before they happen.”

The expert two-day classroom course will take place at Tavcom’s bespoke Training Centre in Hampshire. It employs a highly interactive style of training and makes extensive use of real life incident video. The course is ideal for security managers and supervisors, CCTV operators, crime investigators and intelligence specialists.

Core subjects

Subjects to be covered include how the dynamics of crime produce body language and incident behaviour, observation skills and implications for the analysis of CCTV video, standout indicators for the recognition of incident conditions, emotions and anxiety leakage as indicators of crime, how behavioural patterns assist in analysis and detection, countermeasures by criminals (eg hiding body language and detection avoidance), crime types, syndicates and how to identify crime relationships, the various stages of crime and criminal behavioural strategies, implications for the use of body components and characteristics for suspect identification and, last but not least, the nature of situational awareness and its role in detection.

The Advanced Body Language Skills for CCTV course costs £575+VAT per participant, with successful completion resulting in the award of a Tavcom Training certificate.

The course will take place on the following dates: 30-31 July, 16-17 October and, in 2019, on 21-22 January as well as 13-14 March.
