The IQ Level 4 Certificate in Covert Surveillance Operations is a qualification designed to develop and provide formal recognition of learners’ knowledge, understanding and competence of surveillance techniques. Surveillance is the monitoring of the behaviour, activities or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of intelligence gathering as part of an investigation into unlawful or illegal activity, or for enforcement activities. The qualification is aimed at those who wish to gain a recognised qualification, whether they are new to the investigative or enforcement sectors or they have a professional background in a related field and intend to engage in continuing professional development. The skills developed in the qualification will be relevant to the private investigation sector and to individuals with a military background carrying out resettlement training prior to civilian life.

This IQ Level 4 in Covert Surveillance Operations (Advanced Award) is an advancement on the Intermediate Award. It is a five day course designed around criminal activity and it will test you to your limits in order for you to become a Qualified Surveillance Operative. This week you will undertake two surveillance operations where you will need to organise advanced foot and mobile surveillance as well as dealing with the public transport system. As you will be following fictional criminals you will need to be aware of their own anti-surveillance and counter-surveillance measures. You will be following them in various towns, cities and rural environments in order to obtain the footage and information that is required. During the final exercise you and your team will be tasked to undertake a counter surveillance mission over watching and securing another surveillance operation in order to keep those operatives  safe and secure to complete their objectives. Its not an easy week, you will be tired and tested but you will be ready.
