UK Based Surveillance Training with Titan Investigations

Surveillance Training UK, Titan offers two surveillance courses which are certificated by Skills For Justice to a Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) Level 4.

What are RQF Qualifications?
The RQF came into force in 2015 and was designed to offer a simpler system for managing qualifications regulated by Ofqual.
Similar to a library bookcase, the RQF allows training providers to index qualifications based on their level and size. The higher the qualification, the greater the complexity and difficulty of the skills and knowledge associated with the qualification.

What is the difference between the two courses?

The Intermediate and Advanced syllabi are very similar in content other than the Advanced has a night-time surveillance element. The Intermediate course covers so much more than the awarding body has set out as a minimum requirement. It is effectively the Advanced course with a lesser Total Qualification Time (TQT) resulting in the learner gaining so much more.

Why Should I Choose the Advanced RQF Level 4 Rather than the Intermediate?

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 a learner’s 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 in the region of £8000 and eight weeks of missed revenue generation whilst training. This in our opinion is only suitable for the Government and corporate sector learners where the budget is much larger.

Titan has adopted a commercially viable method of delivering out training by providing shorter courses costing the learner less combined with further development post course in the form of the “GROW” Student Aftercare Programme. Due to Titan being an operational company, our courses are subsidised and are therefore non-profit-making, meaning that we are investing in the learner. We will offer successful Titan graduates opportunities through the “GROW” Student Aftercare Programme and invest in their development.

Past and present Titan graduates are readily available to speak with you independently regarding their experiences with Titan’s training and post-graduation opportunities.

Recently an individual canvassed industry professionals on a closed Facebook group independent to Titan who he should train with to enter the industry. I think the feedback speaks for itself.
