Qualification……………………… SRF BTEC Level 4

Duration……………………………. 5 days

Delivered by one of our recognised security management trainers, this course is a comprehensive introduction to the essentials of corporate security management. Suitable for all levels, the training is perfect for those wishing to understand the fundamentals of security and can be delivered both virtually via Zoom or in a classroom. Please note, live virtual courses are delivered separately to classroom courses. Learners will not be able to dial in to a classroom course. 

It is designed to provide security managers, supervisors, and those for whom security is one of a number of responsibilities, with the knowledge and confidence necessary to manage a successful security management function. You will learn the fundamentals of security management with an emphasis on risk methodology and designing appropriate security measures.

Identifying assets, threats and vulnerabilities leads to the design of physical security countermeasures. The course focuses on the core requirements to secure people and other critical assets, including risk assessments, risk matrix creation, and how to prepare a business case for security provisions to a senior management team.

This programme takes the form of lectures, workshops, discussions and exercises. Learners are placed into groups and are tasked to solve typical security problems together.

The SRF BTEC Level 4 assessment is started during the course through a learner workbook, project presentation and trainer evaluation. There is no ‘exam’ as such; assessment is supported by the tutor who is there to ensure you gain the very best learning experience.
