Over the next few editions of Hi-Tech Security Solutions, I am going to discuss electronic security which is now registered with the South African Qualifications Authority on NQF Level 4. I am going to look at in particular the skills programmes that are required by PSIRA to register as a technician with them. In particular, I will examine the following certifications:
* CCTV installer.
* Access control.
* Alarm system installer.
We will start with the training requirements of a cabler. The training required here is as follows:
* Explain the requirements of becoming a security service provider.
* Demonstrate a knowledge of ethical working practices.
* Apply cabling methods.
* Apply basic business methods.
* Select, use and care for engineering power tools.
The unit standard for cabling methods is for persons who perform various functions that are supported by the ability to install cable of different types. This unit standard will provide learners with knowledge and skills to terminate and secure cabling from point of origin to termination point using different methods.
Learners will be able to identify and select cable types and methods of termination in line with operational requirements.
Learners accredited with this unit standard will be capable of:
* Describing cable types.
* Applying cable termination methods.
* Securing cabling from point of origin to termination point.
In the next edition we will look at CCTV installation.
