PerpetuityARC Training is Going Virtual

A selection of the most popular security management training courses is now delivered in a live virtual classroom, using Zoom.

All the courses are accredited with a BTEC Level 4 or SFJ Awards Level 4, and cover Security Coordination and Design, Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management, Security Management, Kidnap and Ransom Management, and Workplace Investigations and Interviewing.

Delivered via Zoom, the online interactive lectures and workshops are guided by the same expert instructors as the classroom courses. Learners gain the accredited certification in a live environment, without having to travel – adding flexibility and convenience.

Angus Darroch-Warren, Director of Training at Linx International Group, says: ‘The demand for security management training remains high.  At the outset of Covid-19, there was a reluctance to engage with remote, video conference- based learning. However, we have engaged with our client base to understand their needs in terms of training delivery, given that travel restrictions are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Feedback from remote delivery on our courses has been great and we are looking to extend this across our portfolio to give access to all.’


Starting with the BTEC Level 4 Workplace Investigations and Interviewing, this course provides professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to undertake fair, legally-compliant and effective investigations. Delivered by subject matter experts using interactive case studies and practical scenarios, this course will benefit anyone tasked with conducting professional investigations, and not just those within security.

It focuses on the corporate world and the roles and responsibilities of the response team.

Assessment for this course includes group work, 1:1s with the trainer, and a short group presentation.

Virtual dates for this course are scheduled as follows:

 For those who are looking to achieve their accreditation, learners will complete workbooks with the support of their peers and the instructor. Upon successful completion of all workbooks, alongside group work, syndicate presentations, and the formation of a casefile (where applicable), learners will be awarded the BTEC or SFJ Awards accreditation. They will also receive a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) completion certificate which will be emailed at the end of the course.
