    SGW’s Security Surveying & Assessment Course provides occupational standards & competencies for individuals working in the Built Environment

    This programme is based upon security surveying and assessment which follows a risk-based approach, for both proposed and in-use built infrastructure assets. The course programme will examine the different techniques used by security professionals to undertake a security assessment of a new site at pre-construction stage by evaluating architectural drawings and visualisations or an in-use site, with a physical site survey visit and stakeholder consultation.

    Security Needs Assessment

    The Security Needs Assessment module includes a review of competences, techniques, tools and resources necessary to undertake a visual audit of the site and surroundings, identifying environmental cues and features pertinent to the security of the proposed development or in-use facility. This includes determination of plot extents, spatial use, infrastructure placement, access, circulation and the application of CPTED principles.

    Facility Security Risks

    The Facility Security Risks module will review the components and techniques used to undertake a ‘high level’ quantitative and qualatitive Security Risk Assessment. Based upon the context of a sample project, delegates will identify critical assets, vulnerable points and design based threats of both an in-use and pre-construction facility, using assessment data provided within the course workbook and also, within the public domain.

    Facility Security Review

    The Facility Security Review module will review and identify conclusions made in the Facility Security Risks module and techniques which can be applied by the security professional, to guide project stakeholders to make informed decisions on risk mitigation measures to be adopted and the production of the Level 1 Operational Requirement (OR1) to ensure that the solution is acceptable to all and that they have ownership of it.

    Course Syllabus

    This course will be spread over a one month period and will comprise of one two hour live webinar each week, presented by SGW’s course tutors and security professionals. Following the conclusion of each weekly webinar, delegates will progress through a module-based workbook and prepare a final short assignment, for a final group presentation.
