CEGA delighted with Level 3 success!
 
CEGA delighted with Level 3 success! Bisio would like to congratulate all at CEGA Group’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) for successfully completing their IQ level 3 Award for Professional Investigators.
Earlier this year CEGA’s SIU chose Bisio’s comprehensive e-learning package to study for the level 3 Award, that will be the prerequisite qualification for all Professional Investigators when licensing is introduced in 2015.
The study was then followed by the successful completion of the independently invigilated exam in Worthing, one of our 10 exam centers spread around the UK including Wales and NI.

Simon Cook, CEGA’s Head of Special Investigations, said that:
“CEGA are extremely proud to have successfully completed our Level 3 Professional Investigators qualification utilising Bisio Training's e-learning platform. We found the training to be very comprehensive and the Bisio team were always available to assist us when needed. CEGA SIU is now fully compliant in line with the Governments decision that all Private Investigators need to be licensed by Spring 2015."

SIA Update re licensing for PIs
 
SIA Update re licensing for PIs SIA UPDATE IN FULL!!

On 31 July 2013 the Home Secretary announced the Government's intention for the SIA to regulate private investigation activities, starting some time in 2014.

The current arrangements, under which the system is not regulated, allows anyone to work as a private investigator, regardless of their skills, experience or criminal convictions. The Home Office is introducing new regulation of private investigators to put a stop to this and help ensure the public is protected against unscrupulous activity.

We will only grant a licence when an applicant has successfully:

  • completed training and achieved a government-recognised qualification, which includes understanding of relevant laws and standards, and the skills required to conduct activities ethically;
  • confirmed their identity; and
  • undergone a thorough criminality check.
As with other sectors of the private security industry, all applicants will need to meet these standards in order to receive a licence. This includes any contractors working on private investigations for companies.

The Private Security Industry Act 2001 defines the licensable activities of private investigations. The Home Office intends to review this definition to ensure that it remains fit for purpose. Questions relating to whether specific activities will be licensable in future should therefore be directed to the Home Office.
