The Department for Transport (DfT) has granted Teamwork Security approval to run accredited Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) training “on-line” using the medium of Microsoft Teams®. This now allows Teamwork Security to continue to provide a full ISPS offering during the COVID 19 crisis.
Chris Amos, Director of Teamwork Security, said: “I’m delighted that the DfT has now approved our “on-line” PFSO course and that the business is still able to offer its full range of ISPS support services to its customers during these difficult times.”
Teamwork Security now offers a range of general consultancy services, including being able to provide qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors.
Notes to editors
- Teamwork Security was formed in 2004 in response to the demand for Port Facility Security Officer training following the introduction and enforcement of the ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security) Code under amendments to the 1974 SOLAS Convention. Since its inception Teamwork Security has expanded its security offering to cover the full range of ISPS and security consultancy services to the shore based maritime community, thereby enabling them to keep abreast of security risks and to implement measures to counteract the ever-increasing threat. Teamwork Security also works closely with the Maritime Security Resilience Division of the Department for Transport thereby ensuring that Teamwork’s clients are made aware of and adhere to the latest legislative changes and compliance requirements.
