How to Become an Efficient Door-Supervisor or Operator for Close-Circuit Televis

Posted by Ackerley Cook on January 21st, 2020

It is mandatory to complete a licensing program that is approved by SIA if you want to join the private security sector of London, as you receive training for this type of profession.

The importance of monitoring the public activities using the Close Circuit Television has increased over the past decade due to an increase in terrorising activities around the world. London has thousands of CCTV-cameras placed all over the city after witnessing an increase in terrorist attacks and there is always demand for the qualified operators of the Close Circuit Television systems. However, you cannot join this profession if you do not have the SIA license for this particular task and need to complete a training program in order to achieve this license.

The training program that you need to complete and pass with flying colours in order to join the Public Space Surveillance as a professional usually runs for three consecutive days, as SIA requires each trainee to receive at least 27 hours of training before being qualified for the license.
