Under the Private Security Industry Authority Act 2001, all individuals wishing to work in the private security industry must undertake a recognised qualification before applying for a license.

The HABC Award in CCTV Operations (Public Space Surveillance (Scotland) at SCQF Level 6 has been developed to meet the requirements of the Security Industry Authority (SIA). It is based on the relevant SIA 'Specifications for Learning and Qualifications for CCTV Control Room Operators (PSS)' and provides the necessary skills and knowledge for those who wish to apply for an SIA license and work as a CCTV Operative.

The qualification comprises 3 mandatory units:

  • Unit 1 – Working in the Private Security Industry
  • Unit 2 – Working as a CCTV Operator
  • Unit 3 – Practical operation of CCTV equipment
