Leading the way in mobile, digital evidence gathering technology, Audax® are delighted to announce the launch of the Introduction to Body Worn Video (BWV) Cameras CPD Training, aimed at working security professionals.

Traditionally worn by the Emergency Services, local authority employees, and civil enforcement officers, body worn video is becoming increasingly popular as evidence-gathering technology on the security frontline across the globe. This innovative technology is paving the way for both security and personal safety applications, with private companies now issuing BWV to frontline staff, covering them in the case of abuse.

As sponsors of The Professional Security Officer Magazine ( TPSO), we have also been working with our friends and colleagues at THE GUILD OF SECURITY INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS (GSIP) over the past year to produce this educational course.

Audax believe that improving the knowledge and standards of BWV use is crucial when it comes to ensuring that the end-user is getting the most out of these ground-breaking products. As worldwide leaders in developing BWV technologies, Audax ® ’s team of experts have provided their wealth and depth of experience in the creation of this high quality training for no charge, to aid the peer support ethos of GSIP. It has been created to ensure security professionals are properly utilising their devices and improve user confidence with an understanding of the rules of use.

This initially FREE online CPD training is made up of 10 hours of study, in which the participant must pass 35 of the 40 questions in order to obtain the pass certificate.

It is designed to introduce security professionals to Audax® BWV, demonstrating important considerations, practical use, professional standards and Data Protection Acts. On top of these key topics, the extensive table of contents also includes:

  • The difference between BWV and CCTV
  • Overt vs Covert!
  • Resources and background information on BWV projects and initiatives
  • Made in the UK – An introduction to Audax® BWV
  • Understanding BWV concept and technology
  • Evidential continuity
  • The advantages of Digital Evident Management system (DEMS)
  • Unique with Bio-AX® and Audax® cameras

And much more.

After completing the Audax’s Introduction to Body Worn Video Cameras CPD Training, the participants will be more competent and confident with BWV cameras including Bio-AX® and other Audax® cameras, greatly improving camera utilisation and effectiveness.
