Members of the Armed Forces, veterans and the wider military community can access a range of PerpetuityARC Training and Tavcom Training Courses – with a 20% discount …

Linx International Group – the world’s leading provider of accredited security systems training courses – has announced it is supporting members of the Armed Forces, veterans and the wider military community by offering 28 courses through the Defence Discount Service. A wide range of 28 classroom and online courses, focusing on security management and technical skills, are available now from PerpetuityARC Training and Tavcom Training with a 20% discount.

Each year, approximately 15,000 people leave the UK Armed Forces. As a Career Transition Partnership preferred partner, the Linx International Group has already helped many hundreds of them make the transition to employment on civvy street through its wide range of accredited security courses and qualifications.

Says sales and marketing director at the Linx International Group, Sarah Hayward-Turton: ‘We have carefully selected some of our most relevant IQ, BTEC and certificated courses to be made available through the Defence Discount Service. The security industry can offer a hugely rewarding second career for ex-Service personnel, but it is not without its challenges. There are many skills that are transferable, but it is important to have industry-recognised qualifications to sit alongside experience, in order to get ahead in an increasingly competitive industry.’

The availability of technical and security management training courses through the Defence Discount Service follows a recent initiative announced by the Defence Secretary. Through a newly formed Defence Transition Service, military personnel and their families will receive enhanced support from the MoD as they re-join civilian life.

The classroom-based and online courses available now from PerpetuityARC Training and Tavcom Training (with a 20% Defence Discount Service reduction) include the following:
