Having basic electronic knowledge is essential for anyone working in the Security System industry. Tavcom’s online Electronic Principles course with a Level 3 BTEC Advanced Award has been specifically designed for students with little or no knowledge of electronics, and will provide a good fundamental understanding of the basic concepts and electronic principles laws and components used within this industry.Supported by your own online tutor, the course comprises 12 sections covering (without the need for any complicated mathematics or highly technical language) the information required by someone installing, servicing and maintaining security system equipment. Within each module there are a number of Self Assessment Questions to show you how you are progressing and provide a way of testing yourself and ensuring that you have understood the course. At the end of the course you will have to complete a timed online assessment paper.

Study times and entry requirements: The course requires approximately 30 hours of study. One of the many benefits of online study is the ability to manage your learning programme yourself and to chose when and where you study. However, we have set a completion deadline of 6 months from the commencement of the course. There are no prerequisites and no qualifications needed to enrol.

On successful completion of the course you will receive an internationally accredited and recognised qualification.
