Day 3 of 3, I am writing short blog posts on my experience during my CCTV training course in Bedfordshire.
Day 3 - Module 2 and the tests
Yesterday I wrote a post stating that I would only have to do one test and not two because I had already completed module one on a previous course. However, this morning I found out that I would indeed be required to take both tests as they have rewritten module one since I took the course.
Slightly frustrating, however, it gave me a good chance to ensure I was still up to date with the basics of the security industry, which gladly I was.
The tests themselves were not too difficult. Its multiple choice and each test has 40 questions. Therefore, as I took two test I answered 80 questions and I would be disappointed if I got one wrong to be honest.
Before the tests there was also a practical assessment where we had to showcase our practical ability to control a CCTV system. Everyone in the class passed this with ease having all used a CCTV system before. However, it was good to see it being included in the course for those who may not have used a system before.
That’s it for today, for obvious reasons I cannot go into too much detail about the tests. However, I hope that anyone reading this post prior to taking a CCTV course; or anyone entering the security industry has gained some valuable inside the maybe ease pre-course nerves. Please read day one and two blog posts for more information and discussion on the subjects within the course.
