Developed with installers and system integrators, as well as operators, security personnel and specifiers in mind, Tavcom’s Bite Size Training provides the opportunity for security industry professionals to fill in gaps in their knowledge without having to spend many hours researching on the Internet.
Best known as the leading provider of award winning classroom based BTEC certificated training courses, Tavcom has been a pioneer in the provision of online long distance training programmes which offer a cost effective way for students working within the electronic security industry, to acquire new skills sets at their own pace and in their own time.
“Our online courses which can result in career enhancing qualifications have proved to be incredibly popular. However, we offering something distinctly different with our Bite Size Training, the objective of which is to provide Knowledge Modules that address individual key issues,” said Paul Tennent, Managing Director of Tavcom. “Priced from just £9.95 plus VAT, each bite size module is totally focussed on a specific topical subject and, in an extremely easy to complete format, can fill what may be an important gap in a person’s knowledge. Participants will find that there is no heavy reading, but all they need to know is readily available”.
To assist the learning process, students are presented throughout each module with self assessment questions and by clicking on highlighted key words they can view detailed information about certain aspects of the module’s subject matter. At present there are ten Knowledge Modules to choose from, but according to Paul a development programme is in place that will see the list being continually expanded during 2014 and beyond. “Each module will be produced with the assistance of our expert team of independent tutors and consultants, and as you would expect from Tavcom, each will meet the same exacting high standards of education that we have achieved worldwide with our accredited vocational training courses.”
Details of the Knowledge Modules available can be found on the Tavcom website (www.tavcom.com/cpd-courses/bitesize-training/). When completed, each module offers two CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points and they currently cover a diverse range of subjects, including the essential information needed to reliably gather video evidence, a technical guide to fibre optics, Intrusion Detection Devices, EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) and Video Analytics.
