NSI Launches New E-Learning Security Screening Course on BS 7858:2019

Tuesday 13 October 2020 - National Security Inspectorate

Press Information

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is pleased to announce the launch of a new eLearning course to help NSI approved companies understand and apply the requirements of the revised Code of Practice BS 7858:2019 'Screening of Individuals Working in a Secure Environment'.

This introductory course is available to all who wish to enrol, but is particularly useful for screening administrators and controllers. Accredited by the Security Institute’s CPD Scheme, the course includes guidance on: information and documentation requirements; relevant legislation and regulatory requirements; the difference between personal opinion and fact; and the implications of non-compliance.

Upon completion of the course learners will understand the reasons for screening; be able to assist in developing an effective screening process; and understand how to apply the requirements in practice. Each learner will receive a personalised Certificate of Completion.

Split into four parts, the eLearning course will take approximately two hours to complete, and learners may log in and out as many times as they wish, saving their progress each time.

Max Linnemann, Head of Certification Services said, “We are very pleased to be able to offer this new eLearning course to our approved companies.  We are committed to helping our companies keep on top of Standards developments and widening their access to training.  Our new eLearning Screening course provides a cost-effective and convenient way of understanding the latest requirements of BS 7858:2019, which NSI approved companies in the security systems and guarding services sectors need to be aware of.”

Those who would like to find out more information about the course, pricing and how to enrol should contact Maxine Dent, Training, Facilities and Events Co-ordinator by e-mail at [email protected]
