Introducing the IQ Level 4 Certificate in Covert Surveillance Operations.

This qualification is designed to develop and provide formal recognition of learners’ knowledge, understanding and competence of surveillance techniques. Surveillance is the monitoring of the behaviour, activities or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of intelligence gathering as part of an investigation into unlawful or illegal activity, or for enforcement activities.

The qualification is aimed at those who wish to gain a recognised qualification, whether they are new to the investigative or enforcement sectors or they have a professional background in a related field and intend to engage in continuing professional development. The skills developed in the qualification will be relevant to the private investigation sector and to individuals with a military background carrying out resettlement training prior to civilian life.

All learners will cover in Mandatory Group A the principles of types surveillance, log keeping, third party awareness, radio communication, managing dynamic changes, planning and debriefing, legal issues, the use of cameras and videos and mobile, foot and static surveillance.
