This Tavcom-certified Security and Emergency Lighting training course consists of 8 modules and is aimed at anyone involved in designing CCTV systems that have a lighting requirement.

The provision of supplementary lighting is essential to ensure that a CCTV system can capture high-quality images day or night, and yet it is a major component of a security solution which is quite often overlooked. Specifying the correct lighting at an early stage of a project’s lifecycle will ensure that time-consuming return to site visits can be avoided at a later stage.

What will you learn?

  • The fundamentals of light including frequency and wavelength
  • Light pollution and energy management
  • Where light should be measured for CCTV cameras
  • Legislation, codes of practice and governing bodies
  • Perimeter, high security and commercial lighting
  • System integration
  • Emergency lighting
  • Automated intelligent lighting systems and photocells

Deepak asked:

Do I need to be a qualified electrician after this course to install cctv or install any security lighting?


Hi! You do not need to be a qualified electrician to install CCTV, Security Lighting, Intruder Alarms etc. However, the final connection of the system to a fused spur does need to be done by a competent person under the terms of the electricity at work regulations. This can either be done by an electrician or someone who can demonstrate competency having taken an electrical mains compliance course - which we also deliver training for.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, 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.

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.

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 Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
