The Linx International Group’s USP is simple: premium consultancy services combined with unrivalled training expertise in security management, systems and technology.
Established in 1986, the Linx Group has its roots in consultancy and now incorporates the three renowned UK based security training businesses: Perpetuity Academy, ARC Training and security systems specialists, Tavcom Training. The group offers traditional classroom courses, as well as distance learning, blended learning and eLearning programmes. Security management training ranges from entry level certification through to Diploma and MSc programmes. Our technical division is the global provider of BTEC accredited security systems courses. Clients span every major business sector and include government departments, public authorities and law enforcement agencies.
The Group has operational experience in over fifty countries, across six continents, with offices in Dubai to service consultancy and training requirements for clients in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. With training centres in the UK, South Africa, Australia, the UAE and Kuwait alongside partners in India and Singapore we have an enviable international reach.
Perpetuity Academy is the exclusive training provider for the UK’s Security Institute delivering accredited security and risk management courses topped with a Master’s degree in International Security and Risk Management, developed in collaboration with the University of South Wales. ARC Training is an official ASIS UK Education Partner (for the PSP and CPP certifications), with a first time pass rate of 96%.
Our trainers have extensive subject matter expertise and experience, holding either MA or MSc degrees in Security Management, Risk Management, Criminology or a related field. This ensures that the trainers who deliver our certificated programmes are exceptionally well equipped to provide the best possible training and practical assistance to students.
From supervisors to business unit managers and senior executives, we can provide training courses and programmes that ensure personnel are effective in their security/risk related roles and provide a positive return on the organisation’s investment in their personal development.
Our courses contain core security and risk management principles and their practical application, as well as specialist programmes such as security surveying, investigations, specifying security equipment, crisis management and K&R management.
The combined expertise of the Linx Consultancy division, the security management training teams from Perpetuity Academy and ARC Training, all combined with the Tavcom technical systems specialists, has created an unrivalled multifunctional resource within the security sector.
Our understanding of the breadth of sectors with responsibility for security and risk means our range of over one hundred courses also caters for the non-security professional, such as those operating within the Facilities Management, Human Resource and Compliance professions. Our specially designed course Security Management for Non-Security Professionals provides fundamental training for those looking to enhance their professional development.
Through Linx International, we provide an extensive range of security, risk and business management services. Linx provides advice, guidance and support to organisations and individuals, often in conjunction with in-house security teams, to enhance existing programmes or to implement bespoke security systems and procedures. Our consultants (including those at Tavcom) undertake comprehensive threat and vulnerability assessments, security surveys, and security audits at offices, financial institutions, cash/bullion centres, warehouses, manufacturing plants and other installations.
Our approach is to integrate ourselves as an extension of the client’s team to support and advise based on our experience and building trusted relationships. We will work with developers, architects and engineers to ensure that proportionate security mitigation is in place, to counteract identified threats and associated risks. Following our comprehensive analyses during the review phase, we provide our clients with recommendations for cost-effective solutions that correspond to these viable risk assessments.
We support our clients and their personnel as they seek to develop opportunities in existing and emerging markets. This includes pre-deployment risk analysis and training (e.g. country risk profiles and hostile environment awareness training) as well as in country support (e.g. close protection teams and crisis management). Organisations therefore meet their compliance and duty of care requirements; it is essential that at all stages we consider the business and its operational needs to ensure security is a business enabler and not a block to operations.
Today’s business threats are wide ranging and diverse - from data protection, information security, internal theft and weak business processes to supply chain disruption, traveler security, inaccurate or incomplete business information and increased regulation. The services that the Linx international Group provide, whether as a consultancy or through our learning programmes, provide our clients with practical, good practice solutions.
