The engineering fast track | Your future in security tech

The big picture

The Zitko Talent programme provides a complete introduction to the security tech industry, it’s technologies, products and working methods. It’s the ideal launchpad for a technical career in a fast-growing industry. An industry that has a huge demand for qualified technicians and engineers.

As well as gaining hands-on experience with your host company, you’ll receive around 300 hours of technical training and education. 

From electrical theory to cabling, mechanical engineering to the networking aspects, you’ll gain the thorough technical grounding you need to succeed. 

By the end of this one-year programme, you’ll have gained:

  • An industry-recognised Professional Electronic Fire and Security Level 2 qualification
  • Manufacturer certifications in a number of systems
  • A year’s hand-on installation and commissioning experience
  • A sound practical and theoretical knowledge of Fire and Security engineering

It’s a 12-month course and believe us, it’ll be intense! It packs in around 125 hours’ accredited security technical training, up to 160 hours’ product training and a proper, hands-on job.

To be clear, you won't be paying a penny for your training. In fact, you’ll be earning as you work and learn full-time.
