SSAIB partner with Tavcom Training

Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear

The SSAIB has entered into a brand-new partnership with Tavcom Training - a leading provider of accredited security systems training courses - with a Mains Compliance course this month being the first initiative for the link-up.

Tavcom will provide registered firms of the leading certification body for the fire and security industries with access to technical security training, as part of a long-term initiative to raise standards throughout the UK security industry.

The first joint activity is a BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Mains Compliance, which was run at the SSAIB head office yesterday. Demand for this course saw it fill up not long after registration was opened for it – as SSAIB opened the door to what is, hopefully, the first of many training link ups with Tavcom Training.

SSAIB chief executive Alex Carmichael stated: “Training is essential to the security industry - as it helps to ensure that high standards are met and exceeded. However, as a UKAS-accredited certification body, SSAIB does not deliver training. By linking up with Tavcom, we are able to provide our 1800 registered firms with the opportunity to access the industry training that they may need.”

SSAIB and Tavcom previously joined forces in support of the Certified Technical Security Professionals (CTSP) Register, which recognises competency of individuals fulfilling technical roles in the electronic security and fire sectors (the register is operated by Tavcom).

Carmichael adds: “The CTSP Register is an excellent initiative that has had the full endorsement of 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 are helping to maintain standards and professionalise this vitally important industry.”

Tavcom group sales manager Andrew Saywell commented: “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, which are united in the ambition to maintain the very highest standards of practice through accredited training and rigorous certification.”

The next one-day Mains Compliance course takes place on March 30, 2020 at SSAIB’s head office in Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear. It is suited to all who work on or near a live electrical supply and need to ensure that they are a ‘competent person’ under the terms of the ‘electricity at work’ regulation.
