Tavcom announces new virtual training series

by Andy Clutton

Tavcom Training has launched the first in a series of virtual classroom training courses to its classroom training portfolio starting with two fundamental courses: Intruder Alarm System Design BTEC Level 3 and CCTV System Design and Planning BTEC Level 3.

Delivered via Zoom through online interactive lectures and workshops and guided by the same instructors as the classroom courses, learners will have the chance to gain an accredited certification in a live environment, without having to travel.

Not only will learners interact with the class and ask questions as they would in a classroom, but they can expect to receive all the typical benefits of traditional face-to-face training including full tutor support, training resources, and protected soft copies of the learning material distributed prior to course commencement.

Intruder Alarm System Design BTEC Level 3 is the first course in the portfolio to be delivered virtually. It is an essential course for technical specifiers, sales engineers and consultants who wish to work lawfully within the new legislative guidelines and to determine the risk assessment of each installation. Learners on the course will be taught the skills required to carry out risk assessments and surveys in accordance with current British and European standards, in combination with design and planning exercises that will introduce all the necessary new grading requirements.

Intruder Alarm System Design is scheduled to take place virtually on the 15th – 17th February 2021, and will cover the following core topics:

  • Completing security risk assessments
  • An overview of detection devices
  • Control and indicating equipment
  • Signalling devices and considerations
  • Planning and design of systems
  • European Standards explained
  • Insurance requirements
  • Alarm verification techniques
  • Equipment grading criteria
  • Producing system proposals
  • Practical site surveys

Learners can expect to undertake focused morning and afternoon sessions, intersected with project work requiring a level of independent research.

Following on from this is the CCTV (VSS) System Design and Planning BTEC Level 3 course. Designed for all who have the task of designing and planning small or large CCTV systems whilst ensuring compliance with the latest international standards, this course will provide learners with the experience and knowledge to offer solutions to a variety of client’s CCTV requirements. The course will be of particular interest to specifiers, consultants, sales personnel and CCTV system project managers.

The CCTV System Design and Planning course is scheduled to take place virtually between the 15th – 18th March 2021. Throughout the course learners can expect to cover the following core topics:

  • Overview of CCTV technologies and products
  • Developing an operational requirement
  • Risk assessment and site surveys
  • CCTV system design and product selection
  • Effective lighting for CCTV applications
  • Legislation, industry standards and codes of practice
  • System planning – costing, installation, commissioning, maintenance
  • System documentation – specification, drawings, commissioning and handover
  • Writing the system proposal
  • The Tender Process – pre/post tender meetings and presentations

Kevin Matthew, Operations Director for Tavcom Training, says: “Delivery in a live virtual classroom has many of the benefits of face-to-face learning, without the inconvenience of travel. This is a very important consideration for those whose need for accredited, quality training hasn’t changed, but their ability to join a classroom course has. Learners will participate in the same way that they would in the classroom, with interaction with each other and the qualified course tutor.”

“This is just the start of a series of virtual classroom courses we are looking to develop in order to meet the changing needs of our professionals and is something we’re very proud of here at Tavcom Training.”
