Tavcom Launches Advanced Body Language Skills for CCTV Course

Tavcom Training, part of the Linx International Group has launched an Advanced Body Language Skills for CCTV course. The training develops the essential skills needed to recognise and read incident risk behaviour, and have a greater understanding of people profiling, situational awareness and cultural differences when conducting CCTV surveillance.  

The course tutor is Dr Craig Donald – a respected industrial psychologist with a specialist involvement in human factors issues in technology integration and the security industry. He explains: “Delegates will take away greater observation skills and a higher sensitivity to incident risk behaviour and situations. They will have the ability to read their environment more effectively and identify potential threats or risks even before they happen.”
