In the last 12 months more than 500 engineers, contractors and vendors have applied to have their competence officially recognised. The Register has been endorsed by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) and Dubai’s Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA).

David Wilkinson CTSP, Director of Technical Services at BSIA, states: "We are proud to support the CTSP Register to promote the technical competency and professionalism our security personnel have to offer. Such recognition is important in ensuring the fire and security industry can demonstrate its proposition as an attractive career path to what is a highly technical and diverse industry sector"

Since its launch, the CTSP Register has continued to evolve to assist security professionals and those who depend on their capabilities, including employers, end-user organisations and households. In June, it was announced that auditors and consultants who fulfil technical roles in electronic security and fire systems would be eligible to apply. In addition, a new Vocational Application Pathway has been created in collaboration with SSAIB that enables engineers and consultants with relevant security systems experience but without recognised industry qualifications to apply.

CTSP Registrar, Kevin Matthew (pictured above), states: "There is a real appetite across the security and fire sectors to raise standards. The CTSP Register is being seen as a way for professionals with the right qualifications and experience to be recognised for their dedication to technical best practice, and hopefully that translates into winning more business"

All CTSP applications are assessed by the Registration Manager, and successful applicants appear on the publicly searchable Register. The application process takes place online and costs £25, with a £50 annual fee payable on acceptance.
