Training Courses

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

NEW FOR 2021 - MODULAR TRAINING OPTIONS

As the courses are being run online we now have the opportunity to offer more flexibility for those who want to attend more than one of our courses. There is, necessarily, a certain amount of overlap between the courses because it is important that all delegates understand the overarching principles of security in Government before addressing the practitioner modules of the courses as they relate to Industry.

For the first time we can offer students who undertake either the Role of the Security Controller Course or the Security Vetting Procedures Course the opportunity to add the practitioner modules from other DISA courses. Each additional module will be approximately half the price of the full course and require a shorter time commitment.

Students will be given access to watch the pre-recorded videos (Vetting or Document) and then attend a three hour live tutorial and Q&A session with the course tutors and other students who are doing the practitioner modules, so students will know some of the faces from their previous course.

Students still have the option to book onto the full price live courses if they would prefer to learn via this method.

DISA COVID AMENDMENTS

We have started to re-introduce some face to face courses and events during 2021 and hope to introduce the full suite of courses as normal during 2022. However, after the successful introduction of online courses during Covid we have listened to feedback and intend to continue to offer these during 2022. Please check course details carefully when choosing whether you would prefer the face to face or online course as these will not run on the same dates.

Security Vetting Practitioner Module

This course is only available as an additional option when booking the Role of the Security Controller Course.

The course content is delivered via pre-recorded videos which are made available for a limited amount of time prior to the live tutorial.

The tutorial is not intended to deliver the course content.

Students are given access to watch the video content at least 48 hours prior to the tutorial and we recommend that time should be set aside to watch them as though attending a live course.

This course recognises that some of the foundation modules are shared with the Role of the Security Controller course and can feel repetitive for those undertaking both courses. It will include access to the videos covering the foundation content should students wish to refresh their knowledge prior to watching the compulsory Vetting specific videos. This is then followed by a live tutorial over Microsoft Teams where students can ask questions and discuss what they have learnt.

Students who do not watch the videos will not be issued with a certificate of attendance.

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"
