The CTSP Register has been endorsed in the UK by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the SSAIB, as well as internationally by Dubai’s Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA). It represents an opportunity for installers and those who maintain security/fire systems, to be officially recognised for their competencies and qualifications on a public register.
CTSP Registrar, Kevin Matthew, states: “We are delighted so many security professionals have seized the opportunity to have their qualifications, competency and experience recognised on the CTSP Register. The industry is now a step closer to raising professional standards in the technical security sector, however, our ultimate ambition is for every practitioner to reach the CTSP standard and take their place on the Professional Register.”
All applications are assessed by the Registration Manager, to ensure only those with the necessary credentials are admitted to the Register. The core disciplines covered by CTSP include: video surveillance systems (CCTV), access control, intruder and hold up alarms and fire alarm systems. The publicly searchable Register lists Registrants and the discipline they are qualified in, enabling end users and employers to select a qualified technical security professional.
