BTEC Level 3: Advanced Certificate in Surveillance Awareness (10/11 Days + Pre Learning Module) Cost: £1400.00 Deposit £250.00

This programme has three units –Description: Suitable for those who have some knowledge of surveillance and understand the complexity of the skills required, upon completion once learners have gained operational experience learners can access the BTEC L4 Professional Awards in Anti Surveillance, Counter Surveillance and Advanced Mobile Techniques to expand their portfolio of Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Unit 1:Governance for Surveillance Operatives – Pre learning Module (20hrs)

The pre-learning module will encourage learners to research the current law, legislation, regulation, code of practice and guidelines that regulate surveillance activity on persons, vehicles, places and, or objects.

Unit 2: Surveillance Practices

This unit will reinforce the reason why surveillance, covert surveillance and anti-surveillance, is an indispensible way of gathering intelligence. It will also cover the importance of surveillance, and the skill sets learners will require to maintain the viability of a surveillance operation. Upon completion of the unit, learners will understand what is required to maintain the sequence of surveillance, negotiation and confidentiality issues, and the legal safeguards in place which g overn surveillance activity to prevent misuse.

Unit 3: Contribute to Surveillance Operations

This unit will underpin the key skills required to perform surveillance, counter surveillance, and anti surveillance techniques whilst on foot, and or mobile, as part of a team or as an individual. Key skills in reconnaissance and planning, teamwork, interpersonal skills, communication, i.e. call signs and phonetic alphabet, techniques, technology (where applicable), terminology, navigation, map reading and dress code will be illustrated and explained to the learner during this unit. Learners will explore the difficulties, barriers and dangers which they may be exposed to whilst undertaking surveillance, and will be shown how to deal with incidents and dilemmas effectively without compromising a surveillance operation.

BTEC Level 4 Professional Certificate in Surveillance (10/11 days) Cost: £1550.00 Deposit £300.00

This programme has two units –Description: Developed for individuals with surveillance experience and wish to take learning to a higher level, without the commitment of completing the Professional Diploma. Undertaking this programme would allow access the BTEC Level 4 Professional Awards at a later date:

Description: An intense professional development programme structured for those with surveillance experience and a commitment to learning. The programme consists of 6 modules and can be completed over a 24month period, allowing time for work commitments whilst learning.
Unit 1: Governance for Surveillance Operatives (20hrs- Pre learning Module)

The pre-learning module will encourage learners to research the current law, legislation, regulation, code of practice and guidelines that regulate surveillance activity on persons, vehicles, places and, or objects.

Unit 2: Surveillance Practices (Advanced) (Part of 10/11Days)

This unit will reinforce the reason why surveillance, covert surveillance and anti-surveillance, is an indispensible way of gathering intelligence. It will also cover the importance of surveillance, and the skill sets learners will require to maintain the viability of a surveillance operation. Upon completion of the unit, learners will understand what is required to maintain the sequence of surveillance, negotiation and confidentiality issues, and the legal safeguards in place which govern surveillance activity to prevent misuse.

Unit 3: Contribute to Surveillance Operations (Advanced) (Part of 10/11 Days)

This unit will underpin the key skills required to perform surveillance, counter surveillance, and anti surveillance techniques whilst on foot, and or mobile, as part of a team or as an individual. Key skills in reconnaissance and planning, teamwork, interpersonal skills, communication, i.e. call signs and phonetic alphabet, techniques, technology (where applicable), terminology, navigation, map reading and dress code will be illustrated and explained to the learner during this unit. Learners will explore the difficulties, barriers and dangers which they may be exposed to whilst undertaking surveillance, and to analyse and evaluate own professional development.

Unit 4: Anti Surveillance (4 Days Combined with CS, as part of the Diploma Programme)

Anti surveillance is used in surveillance as a counter measure and should not be confused with counter surveillance practices. The aim of this unit is to hone skills in the art of anti surveillance techniques in order to evade and or detect third party surveillance with the use of covert and or overt skills. To achieve, learners will be expected to demonstrate an increase in competency, a high level of flexibility and knowledge to make an informed judgement on whether or not to implement overt obvious skills, or highly sophisticated covert skills whilst employing anti-surveillance to minimise detection by a third party.

Unit 5: Counter Surveillance (4 Days Combined with AS, as Part of the Diploma Programme)

Counter surveillance is one of the counter measures used within surveillance therefore it is critical to a learners development that they develop an in-depth understanding of this area and the factors relevant to the use of counter surveillance techniques used to evade and or detect surveillance with the use of covert skills. Learners with basic knowledge of counter surveillance techniques will be able to hone skills to a level where detection of surveillance is maximised and this can only be achieved if the operative has relevant knowledge of the surveillance cycle, and can illustrate an increase in competency, by demonstrating counter-surveillance practices and knowledge to make an informed judgement on whether or not surveillance is present.

Unit 6: Advanced Mobile Techniques (2 Days Pre course reading, Theory and Practical)

The intention of the unit is for learners to gain knowledge and understanding relating to the components required for advanced mobile techniques used during surveillance tasks. The aim of this unit is to underpin the key skills required to perform advanced mobile techniques during surveillance, counter surveillance, and anti surveillance tasks by using the main principles of surveillance for foot and mobile techniques, using cover effectively, distance and timing, making progress safely and securely, within the highway code legislation, recognising and understanding road-craft, paying attention to static positioning, communication, recognising limitations and restrictions whilst working as an individual or as part of a team and the effective transition from mobile to foot and visa, versa. The learner’s ability to advance with techniques relevant to technology and navigation skills to lock on to geographical locations, become a vital part of being able to successfully illustrate the use of advanced skills.

**BTEC Level 4 Award: Anti Surveillance (30hrs Pre Learning, Theory and Practical)

Description: Anti surveillance is used in surveillance as a counter measure and should not be confused with counter surveillance practices. The aim of this unit is to hone skills in the art of anti surveillance techniques in order to evade and or detect third party surveillance with the use of covert and or overt skills. To achieve, learners will be expected to demonstrate an increase in competency, a high level of flexibility and knowledge to make an informed judgement on whether or not to implement overt obvious skills, or highly sophisticated covert skills whilst employing anti-surveillance to minimise detection by a third party. Due to the intensity of this unit it can only be undertaken by learners who are completing the BTEC L4, or can demonstrate experience in surveillance practices, and or have completed a BTEC L3 or equivalent as it is essential that learners have prior knowledge of the surveillance cycle and basic working experience of anti surveillance techniques. This unit provides learners with the opportunity to enhance anti-surveillance skills, awareness and knowledge delivered in BTEC L3 Operational Surveillance Awareness Unit 3, or BTEC L4 in Advanced Operational Surveillance Practices Unit 3.

**BTEC Level 4 Award: Counter Surveillance (30hrs – Pre Learning, Theory and Practical)

Description: Counter surveillance is one of the counter measures used within surveillance therefore it is critical to a learners development that they develop an in-depth understanding of this area and the factors relevant to the use of counter surveillance techniques used to evade and or detect surveillance with the use of covert skills. Learners with basic knowledge of counter surveillance techniques will be able to hone skills to a level where detection of surveillance is maximised and this can only be achieved if the operative has relevant knowledge of the surveillance cycle, and can illustrate an increase in competency, by demonstrating counter-surveillance practices and knowledge to make an informed judgement on whether or not surveillance is present. It is important that the learner understands skills required for counter surveillance are should not be confused with anti surveillance practices. Due to the intensity of this unit it can only be undertaken by learners who are completing the BTEC L4, or can demonstrate experience in surveillance practices and or have completed a BTEC L3 or equivalent. This unit provides learners with the opportunity to enhance anti surveillance skills, awareness and knowledge delivered in BTEC L3 Operational Surveillance Awareness Unit 3, or BTEC L4 in Advanced Operational Surveillance Practices Unit 3.
