Security CPD Certification and Accreditation

We can help you develop your own specific training courses which we will accredit under our Security CPD certification scheme, as an independently verified course of learning, as we have a variation of levels from Seminar to Advanced or Specialist level, with the latter being quality assured by industry SME’s   Contact 

Training Development and Program Design

Is there a course you need to develop that isn’t currently available or is simply too bespoke or commercially sensitive to be placed on the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) then look no further we can develop and accredit this for you whilst ensuring it meets all the industry standards.  

Specialist Security CPD Training

We have a range of pre-developed Security training programs that can be delivered to your Security Personnel to enhance their knowledge and skills that can be delivered by our specialist instructors or we can train your instructors to deliver these.

How we apply CPD points to your training

Each CPD certificate irrespective of the course, Seminar, Awareness training, or other event is individually numbered and includes the following

  • Date of issue
  • Provider Number
  • Certificate Number
  • Course Number
  • Level Basic, Intermediate, Advanced or Specialist

Each is signed by the Chief Executive and the provider/Instructor ensuring the validity of each individual certificate giving confidence to the Security Professional and employers that it is a genuine certificate and can be verified with us in exactly the same way you can with an RQF certificate with any main stream Awarding Organisation. We are proud of our suppliers and training providers and have made every effort to ensure the learning they provide is Security Industry relevant and provided by sector-competent professionals. 

Generally, 1 CPD point is equal to one hour of active learning, meaning you get one point for every hour you spend on CPD activity. however, we have taken into consideration other association’s formats such as the Security Institute, et al, and things like the complexity of the training along with its Educational standards such as Basic/Awareness, Intermediate, Advanced, and Specialist. Each indicates the prior knowledge, skills, and experience required to competently understand the content, as well as whether you have been academically or physically tested by an appointed assessor who has deemed you competent under an agreed form of examination conditions

We believe that this is an authentic, fair, and valid method of assessment that also gives employers, learners, and relevant others a clear understanding of your participation in time, depth of learning, and the process of certification attainment

The sections below demonstrate the maximum number that can be attained however you may only receive any combination of points from 1 to the maximum dependent on learning Time, Knowledge, Common Skill level, and whether tested or not during the CPD program.

Some associations or organisations have their own methods of calculating CPD and you should refer to their system to ascertain whether our system is acceptable in achieving their requirements

Note: You can do an advanced or Specialist course of learning and you may only achieve 5 – 6 CPD points, which is why we have developed this system as it indicates it was a Basic or Awareness activity, 6-15 means it was at Specialist Intermediate, 15 -30 equals Specialist Advanced and finally 30 – 50 means Specialist Tested activity     

          Basic/Awareness CPD

The Basic level will only attract a maximum of 6 CPD points as this is considered attendance only and with no formal method of testing or proven knowledge retention. The maximum will only be given where there has been active participation


            Intermediate CPD 

At the intermediate level, there is a requirement for proven prior learning in a relevant subject such as F-POS(I)/FREC or Security Aligned RQF Qualification which will attract a maximum of 15 CPD points and is dependent on time in active learning and whether assessed or not

              Advanced CPD 

The Advanced level will involve a learner providing products of work that have been assessed by a competent person and require’s prior relevant knowledge or skills at an equivalent of a minimum of Level 3 RQF or higher, attracting a maximum of 30 CPD points

              Specialist CPD 

The Specialist level requires the learner to be highly skilled and knowledgeable within their sector of operations whilst being operationally active or wishing to return to operational service, whilst holding relevant experience in the subject area and can attract a maximum of 50 CPD Points

CPD training is only the beginning

Many people have a perception of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) as an easy option or a necessary evil, however, CPD ensures your personal and professional stability enabling you to keep up with your competitors and colleagues.

CPD maintains your client’s confidence in your ability to provide them with proactive solutions and be aware of up-to-date technology or trends that may affect their businesses and ultimately their safety, security, and assets. 

Let’s take RFID as an example, some companies are still using old RFID systems which have now been compromised by technology allowing hostile actors to clone them and gain unrestricted access to the premises and services. CPD gives you the edge over your competitors and those wishing harm against you.   

Not all weapons can be detected by metal detectors which why developing a search strategy relevant to your venue is important for the safety and Security of your staff and the Public. 

Your Security presence must be Polite, Respectful yet robust and confident to challenge any unknown person. 

Social Engineering of people and security protocols is still a threat to businesses and security teams & receptionists should be aware of the tactics used by what we term hostile actors 

Never underestimate your foe, because they will adapt, and so must you!
