Titan commenced delivering surveillance training in 2017 after outgrowing our current resourcing structure and after their complete dismay at the quality and how unprepared new operatives were that other surveillance training providers were churning out with their conveyor belt courses.
Titan required operatives to represent and work for them so that they could meet operational demand and as a result required their course graduates to be of a high standard. We noted that the RQF Level 4 (Intermediate) in Covert Surveillance Operations had huge knowledge gaps within the syllabus. Gaps which, in our opinion, are essential for newly trained operatives to have. As a result, Titan added the knowledge gaps into the RQF Level 4 syllabus. The days are long during our surveillance course and the learning curve is steep. Something we don’t apologise for.
Titan differs from other training providers. This is because we are predominantly an operational investigation agency, so we don’t just provide learners with knowledge and wave them on their way. We are able to offer operational deployments post-course.
Titan developed the GROW Student Aftercare Programme which provides its Graduates with a development post course and ensures their success within the industry.
GROW stands for Group, Recommend, Ongoing support and With you.
So, let’s go through what these areas actually mean.
GROUP – All Titan surveillance course graduates are added to the Titan Operational Resourcing Group. This group is where Titan advertises and resources all of their operational deployments. There are just shy of 300 members who are like-minded and professional surveillance operatives. They are all either sole traders or heads of limited companies and advertise and resource all of their operational deployments on the group. This makes it a busy group which is full of operational deployment opportunities.
Recommend – Our training team and members of the group are always on hand to advise you in regard to equipment, setup, tactics and the law. Titan also has a dedicated one-stop kit shop where learners can purchase the best equipment for their deployments.

Ongoing Support – We allocate each Graduate a mentor whose role is to offer sound advice from experience and ease them into the industry gently. When we can’t allocate a mentor, the training team performs this role.
With You – The first operational deployment is where a new operative is judged and can be the make and break of their future career. As a result, the Graduate is encouraged to speak to their mentor or the Titan training team prior to their first deployment to discuss the briefing and the objectives. Where possible we endeavour to deploy with the operative; however, this isn’t always possible.
How do I gain further information about Titan’s training courses?
We have recorded an episode on the Titan PI TV YouTube channel which is informative and can be watched at any time.
Will I get a job once I have successfully completed a course?
Once our graduates complete the surveillance course, they are added to the Titan Operational Resourcing Group where operational deployments are advertised and resourced. When a surveillance task is allocated to a graduate, it is on a subcontractor basis, and they will be paid no less than £25 per hour for a minimum of five hours and any mileage incurred during the task at £0.40 per mile.
