I’ve had a really great week in the technical workshops taking the Practical CCTV Installation Course, I found especially useful the sections on CCTV configuration and detailed information on IP CCTV, I hope to be able to come back to take the CCTV Masterclass.

I wanted comprehensive up-to-date theory combined with practical elements such as wiring up a complete fire alarm, intruder alarm, and access control systems to the relevant and professional standards. That is what I got with Tavcom. I know I can now prove to my existing employer, Mitie Fire & Security and any future employers that I can do the job to a competent and credible level.

I thought the course was great, I'm now back in the office, raring to go with lots of ideas to implement everything learnt. I will be driving the business by pushing the CCTV offering which will get me out there speaking to potential customers.

Andy as a tutor was really engaging, he explained in depth the reasoning behind different applications and camera choice, and real-life stories of his work. As a director of a security installation company, he really understood the industry and the market and what customers wanted, even when they were not so sure themselves. The supporting material is a useful reference.

The course covered everything from analogue to digital to IP Systems, costings, lens selection, cabling, lighting, housing, testing, recording, playback and mobile applications.

I now feel more confident to survey sites and recommend the best systems to cost effectively meet the customers' requirements.

The recommended hotel had 3 of the classmates as residents, which resulted in us meeting each night for dinner to discuss the learning that day and work on our homework and revision as a team, and testing each other over breakfast.

It really was a very enjoyable and valuable experience and I look forward to the Access Control and Project Management with Tavcom.

I would like to thank all the staff at Tavcom Training Center for their support, they are doing an amazing job especially our tutor Mr. Andy who has shared his knowledge and expertise.
I have learned new skills and that have given me a new perspective in the security industry on how to compare different products for better results at a more cost-effective rate. I am now more confident to sell my skill to get a job as a CCTV engineer.

The course was a nice experience and made so many things clear for me in CCTV world. Andy was an excellent trainer and he really knows his stuff.
All in all, it was great to be part of the course and I hope I get to attend/ earn some more Tavcom courses.
