    SFJ Level 4



1 Day Award

The SFJ Level 4 Courses in Covert Surveillance Operations are qualifications designed to develop and provide formal recognition of learners’ knowledge, understanding and competence of surveillance techniques and tactics. 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 qualifications are 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.
