The Cash and Valuables in Transit (CVIT) qualification will allow you to work in this area of the private security industry. If you are looking for better pay in the industry, this three-day course can give you an invaluable step to increasing your salary by around 25%.
With the UK becoming increasingly reliant on debit and credit cards, experts say that cash will always remain around. In addition, to which cards are of value and need transporting safely. Items such as works of art, priceless gems, and jewellery also need transporting safely. This industry is, therefore, never going to die out.
A 3-Day course covering all of the required mandatory units for the learner to apply to the SIA (Security Industry Authority) for the CVIT Licence.
What are the roles of the CVIT team?
There are several CVIT companies, including G4S, Loomis, Gunnebo and BDI Securities. Banks, financial organisations, large stores, local authorities, jewellers, museums and exhibitions all need to have cash or valuables transported regularly.
Start Training Immediately And Become SIA Licensed Quickly In A Few Weeks Qualifying as a cash and transit security guard takes just three days. It will then take around five weeks to have your licence approved by the SIA.
What is the average salary for a CVIT operative?
The salary for a cash and transit guard is higher than the average salary of a door supervisor, which is £20,536. Hourly rates tend to be around £13 -£17 hourly, with annual salaries averaging £28,106.
Is it dangerous to work in the cash and transit industry?
There are risks with any job. As a doctor or nurse in a hospital, you stand a far more serious chance of being physically or sexually assaulted by a patient, with a staggering 30% of staff saying they have been abused in this way. In security, as a door supervisor, you are taking a risk when you are dealing with potential violence.
Cash and transit personnel often receive bad press. The news often has stories about heists and attacks on cash and transit drivers and guards. Obviously, when a serious amount of cash and valuables are at stake, this can be targeted by sophisticated and organised criminals. However, attacks are exceptionally rare. As a cash and transit guard or driver, while clients need to rely on the service at regular times, routines will vary, in accordance with client needs, so that you are not a sitting duck where criminals can expect you to turn up at the same entrance, at the same time, on the same day.
The course will also teach you how to deal with a rare emergency. Criminals are essentially after the cash and valuables. Adding violence to the crime only makes the stakes and the penalties harsher and will only mean more police officers are allocated to finding the perpetrators. The company you work for places far more value on your life than the cash and valuables you are holding. In the event of a heist, you will be advised not to risk yourself in any way and to release the money and valuables to armed robbers.
What will I learn in the course?
The course runs over three consecutive days, and it's divided into two units:
Unit 1 – Principles of Cash And Valuables in Transit (CVIT) In The Private Security Industry
Unit 2 – Principles of Working as a Cash And Valuables In Transit (CViT) Operative in The Private Security Industry
