Security Industry CPD and Organisations

Security CPD Global Ltd supports international, European, and UK-based entities that are dedicated to professional development and raising standards for all Security Operatives, below are just a few of the Security Industry CPD Organisations that we are involved with.

Our objective is to provide Security Professionals with resources that will enable them to progress their careers and obtain information and guidance relevant to the Security Industry.

We are happy to add Associations and Awarding Organisations that are dedicated to Continuous Professional Development, as this is in everyone’s one’s interests to maintain and deliver quality and up-to-date service from Operatives to Directors.

There are several routes to qualification from Acas, University Board to Ofqual Regulated and through to Endorsed or accredited routes, set up by Awarding Organisations who have already achieved Ofqual Status and finally, we have CPD certification which can be provided by any person or Organisation is this is not currently regulated by any Official Government body. 

However just because a course is listed on the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) which is overseen by Ofqual, doesn’t make it good or bad, it is the Quality of the Instruction given to learners that matters the most. It should be also recognised by the industry you work within, another condition would be whether this course will aid you in performing your duties or enable you to excel within your career or personal life.  

The content of the training must be Valid, Authentic, Reliable, Current, and Sufficient (VARCS) which is why Security CPD Global Ltd has adopted the same principles as a regulated Organisation, therefore when we approve Training, Seminars, and Achievements we ensure it is Quality Assured and clearly indicates it is CPD rather than giving the misleading impression of being a Government-regulated course. To ensure VARCS, we appoint industry-competent Internal & External Quality Assurance personnel who are qualified and experienced in their field.

The Security Industry has always found it difficult to get training programs on the regulated framework due to a wide range of reasons such as Security Concerns, IP Issues, lack of Numbers, and the cost of development for RQF. This is where Security CPD Global fits in with our clients, as we are able to provide the certification for unique and sometimes security-sensitive training or development, we will only approve dedicated training providers who have a genuine interest in Quality rather than Quantity
