You can still gain your personal licence with ABV.

In light of the on-going situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our face-to-face courses. However, you can still complete your training and gain your qualification with a fully online experience. Choose your course from the selection below, and we will do the rest.

Course Overview

The Level 2 Award in CCTV Public Space Surveillance qualification is required by law for the grant of a Security Industry Authority (SIA) Licence, which allows individuals to work in the private security industry as a CCTV operative.

This three day course is aimed at those wanting to work as a CCTV public surveillance operative. It is also an ideal qualification for those transferring from other security roles as well as people who have an element of CCTV surveillance experience in their current security role.

To work as a CCTV operative, individuals must hold a frontline Public Space Surveillance (CCTV) licence issued by the Security Industry Authority (SIA). To be granted this licence an applicant must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Pass the SIA’s criminality criteria
  • Hold a recognised CCTV PSS qualification - the Level 2 Award in CCTV Public Space Surveillance
