Halton Borough Council is looking for a suitably qualified company to provide Level 2 Award in SIA CCTV Operations (Public Space Surveillance) Training.  This training will be for up to 8 staff and will be delivered at premises provided by HBC.

We require a training course that has been developed to meet the requirements of the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and should be based on the relevant SIA ‘Specifications for Learning and Qualifications for CCTV Control Room Operators (Public Space Surveillance).

Course Specification   

The course is made up of the following units:

Unit 1: Working in the Private Security Industry

·         Know the main characteristics of the Private Security Industry

·         Understand legislation as it applies to the individual in carrying out a licensable activity

·         Understand the importance of safe working practices to comply with legal requirements

·         Understand fire procedures in the Workplace

·         Understand emergencies and the importance of emergency procedures

·         Understand the importance of communication skills and customer care

Unit 2: Working as a CCTV Operator.

Unit 3: Practical use of a CCTV.

The training will need to include the assessment and registration to gain the qualification and issuing the certificate so that the person can register with SIA.

The provider will need to provide all equipment for training in the use of CCTV equipment.  It may be possible to use our CCTV Control Room the test in operational use of the equipment, but this will be subject to further discussions between HBC and Cheshire Police, so cannot be assumed to be available.

It is proposed the service will start delivery as soon as possible.PLEASE NOTE: This Request for Quotation will be assessed on 40% on Price and 60% on Quality.
