Acumen is the e-learning platform from Astute. We believe that training is hugely important for the development of the security and risk sector, and that information for professional development should be easily accessible. All our courses are developed in-house by sector specialists, ensuring that the information is reliable and appropriate.
We currently have a range of courses that are aimed at security officers who wish to refresh their licence-linked training, called Security Foundations. These courses are aligned with the learning outcomes for the UK Security Industry Authority (SIA) training programmes, making them suitable for anyone who did their training a long time ago who wishes to get more up to date information. The courses can be purchased individually or as a complete suite, called The Complete Security Officer for a significant discount.
Courses consist of a video presentation, a quiz and some scenario based questions. Designed to take between 10 and 15 minutes each, these programmes work as topic introductions or refreshers, depending on the level of the learner.
Acumen is perfect for existing security teams without access to e-learning and in-house teams that require refresher training. It provides an excellent reporting function and supports any organisation seeking to implement training as a part of their compliance programme. What’s more, we offer discounts for organisations that would like to enrol more than 10 learners – please use the contact us page to find out more.
We also use Acumen for the delivery of our Security and Risk Management accredited courses.
Accessing Acumen couldn’t be simpler. Acumen can be reached here. You will need to create a username and password (with no obligation!) to access the system before being taken to the catalogue where you can browse and enrol on our courses.
We have new courses in development all the time, so please get in touch if there is any topic you would like to see us develop training for.
