Why Choose Titan as your surveiilance training provider?
The main reason is that you receive double the tuition at a ratio of 1 instructor to 2 students however, it is almost double the cost. The advanced course will help with your confidence and ability however, the Intermediate RQF Level 4 won’t put you at a disadvantage. We have had some great students through the intermediate course who are complete success stories when combining the intermediate qualification with Titan’s ”GROW” student aftercare programme. Some providers offer an 8-week course and allegedly receive expressions of interest. Such courses will realistically cost £8000 and eight weeks of missed revenue generation whilst training. This in our opinion is only suitable for the Government and corporate sector where the budget is much larger. These courses are not commercially viable, hence why Titan don’t provide such courses as there is no demand.
Titan Investigations is predominantly an operational investigation agency with nine offices located between London and Manchester allowing us to offer surveillance deployments Nationally. Titan developed its training arm in 2017 to ensure that operational demand was met. Titan Graduates are automatically enrolled onto Titan’s “GROW” Student Aftercare Programme where they are allocated a qualified mentor, added to the Titan resourcing group and further developed operationally whilst earning. Most training providers have little if any involvement with you following the completion of their courses. Titan are different and will invest in your future development providing you with operational opportunities to ensure your further success and to enable you to earn straight away.
Past and present Titan graduates are readily available to speak with you independently regarding their experiences with Titan’s training and post-graduation opportunities.
Titan are dedicated to raising standards within the industry. Trust Titan to invest in your future.
