Training Courses

DISA is a leading independent trainer providing specialised training courses for personnel associated with HMG contracts using Classified Material.

There is a hybrid approach being taken towards training post-Covid, with a combination of virtual and face to face courses being run throughout the year. Please note that there will be more face-to-face courses scheduled for 2023, and those who require virtual training will need to join a waitlist. Dates will be set once we have enough interest.

All courses are limited to 25 delegates to encourage networking opportunities between delegates and give plenty of time to ask questions of the tutors.

Exams are being reintroduced for the Security Controller and Security Vetting courses from November 2022. Please note that this is an internal qualification meant to test your own knowledge and is not currently affiliated to any external training body.

Please be aware that places on these courses will fill up very quickly and are issued on a first come, first served basis. No spaces can be reserved without a valid booking form, complete with wet signature.

Once a course is fully booked, unsuccessful applicants will be added to a waitlist to be notified once the next set of course dates are released.

Delegate Comments

These are some of the comments made by delegates after attending one of our online courses -

"Communication with the staff doing the booking was excellent - very quick to respond and very helpful."

"I thought all of the topics were interesting and relevant to the role."

"I think the course content touched on enough depth with each category. The possibility to gain further knowledge is defined by the availability of other courses."

"This was such a useful course and I very much wish I'd known about it sooner. The DISA staff could not have been more helpful during what must have been a logistical nightmare with trying to rearrange everything to fit with the current situation and I'm very grateful for the effort that went into putting on the course"
