Certified Technical Security Professional (CTSP) Register Receives Over 200 Applications

Tavcom Training is delighted to announce that the Certified Technical Security Professional Register (CTSP) has received over 200 applications to join the Register since launching on 1st September 2017.

The CTSP Register has been endorsed in the UK by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the SSAIB, as well as internationally by Dubai’s Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA). It represents the only opportunity for installers and those who maintain security/fire systems, to be officially recognised for their competencies and qualifications on a public register.  

CTSP Registrar, Kevin Matthew, states: “We are delighted so many security professionals have seized the opportunity to have their qualifications, competency and experience recognised on the CTSP Register. The industry is now a step closer to raising professional standards in the technical security sector, however, our ultimate ambition is for every practitioner to reach the CTSP standard and take their place on the Professional Register.”

All applications are strictly assessed by the Registration Manager, to ensure only those with the necessary credentials are admitted to the Register. The core disciplines covered by CTSP include: Video Surveillance Systems (CCTV), Access Control, Intruder and Hold up Alarms and Fire Alarm Systems. The publicly searchable Register lists Registrants and the discipline they are qualified in, enabling end users and employers to confidently select a qualified technical security professional.

The CTSP application process is conducted online and costs £25, with a £50 annual registration fee payable upon successful admittance to the Register. The Registrant then becomes part of a certified professional network and has the right to use post-nominals (e.g. John Smith CTSP) and the use of the CTSP logo on promotional materials.
