It's great to be appreciated…
Les Green worked for 24 years as a Facilities Manager for the NHS. His responsibilities included overseeing the deployment and maintenance of Access Control, CCTV intruder and fire alarms systems at a major hospital in East London.
For personal reasons, Les took the opportunity to apply for voluntary redundancy, but having taken time off to care for a loved one, Les decided he wished to embark on a new career working within the electronic security industry. In order to do so, Les understood that he needed to acquire a greater knowledge of the practical aspects of installing CCTV and intruder alarms systems.
“I recently attended Tavcom’s Practical CCTV and Practical Intruder Alarm systems training courses. I already had a general understanding of electronic security systems which I acquired through my work activities at an NHS hospital, but I realised that if I was to have a successful second career, it was essential to fill in some gaps in my knowledge.
I was a little apprehensive about going back into a learning environment having not done so since I left school many years before. Any lack of confidence evaporated the moment I walked through the entrance of the Tavcom Training Centre door to participate in the first of the two training courses. The warm welcome I received from many members of the Tavcom team instantly made me feel at home. Most importantly, the level of help and encouragement I received from the Tavcom tutor throughout the five days of the course was matched in equal measure by the quality of the course materials and the excellent way in which the tutor delivered the course.
I have come away from both courses equipped with new skill sets and a degree of knowledge that has increased my enthusiasm for developing a career in the electronic security sector.”
