So What Will You’ll Learn?

The Titan Training Academy’s online training instructors have over 77 years combined Briitsh Government Surveillance experience and countless years of Commercial Surveillance experience. During the Worldwide COVID19 Pandemic, we have adapted our training practices to enable us to deliver learners solely the theory aspects of surveillance which we deliver each morning on the Titan ‘5 Day Surveillance Training Course’.

This course can be used solely in its entirety by learners who have previous knowledge of surveillance or who are new to the industry and are planning to receive independent mentorship and development. It is however, recommended that new learners proceed to our ‘3 Day Assessment Course’ after successful completion of the online course.

 

Here, learners will receive further instruction and demonstrate the application of the theory. Successful learners will then be enrolled onto Titan’s ‘GROW’ Student Aftercare Programme where they will receive mentorship and further development whilst earning.

Enrolment to the ‘GROW’ Student Aftercare Programme will not occur on completion of the online course on its own.

We have filmed over 10 hours of video lessons covering 17 modules including key subjects such as Surveillance Law, Principles of Surveillance, Anti-Surveillance, Mobile Surveillance, Legends (Cover Stories), Radio & Mobile Communications and Foot Surveillance etc.

The full list of course modules can be found on the section below.

    Course Modules

    1. Principles of Surveillance

    In this module, we cover the basic principles which are required to conduct a surveillance operation, whether that be on foot or from a vehicle. We look at:

    • The use of communications/ radios
    • Props – being seen but not remembered
    • Use of natural cover whilst in an urban environment
    • Landmarks for the surveillance team to latch on to
    • Clothing – “Dress up to dress down,”
    • Visual distinctive mark (VDM) – clothing colours, jewellery, smells, vehicles
    • Acting natural and third party awareness
    2. Subject Identification
    Identification is key within surveillance operations, mainly to confirm that we are following and gaining evidence on the correct individual, but also to reduce collateral intrusion. We will discuss the three types of identification which are:

    • Positive identification

    • Negative identification
    3. Radio and Mobile Communications
