Nathan asked:

Good Afternoon Can I do this course and the 100% Online Award in Working as a CCTV (PSS) Operator at the same the same time?

Answer:

Hello Nathan, Nice to hear from you again. Each course would require a concentrated amount of your attention so we do not recommend doing both at the same time. This is because the course dates for the CCTV (PSS) course and the Security Guarding course tend to overlap due to the fact that at least one of each course is run every week. What we recommend is that you book a combined CCTV (PSS) and Security Guarding course package but request a course period for each course that won't clash.

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
