Security Screening

Online security screening course


Recruiting new employees can be a time consuming process. It can cause hassle, stress and use a whole lot of resources. Be aware, an important task that should not be forgotten when recruiting new staff is security screening. 

What is security screening? 

Security screening is crucial when deciding if an individual is suitable for a job role and includes running background checks such as Right to Work, identity verification and DBS checks (Disclosure and Barring Service). It involves some of the most basic checks to confirm a candidate’s identification, eligibility and employment history. 

Security Screening made simple 

Screening new employees might be a task that makes you take a big ol’ sigh.  However, we can support you throughout the recruitment process with our online security screening course. Our easily accessible learning material is free and open to all industry professionals, and it makes security screening much easier and more convenient for recruiters and employers. 

In 2019 British Standards Institution released its latest code of practice, BS7858, which details the best practices and guidelines for security screening. Our online course will help you to understand the requirements of BS 7858:2019 and get up to scratch in conducting satisfactory security screening.

We first brought outsourced security screening services to the industry in the early 1990s when the standard was NACP1, long before BS7858:1996 – we are specialists and experts! 

How do I access the course and how long will it take to complete? 

The online course can be found here and it will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. 

The Hantec team will be on hand to support you throughout the training to help with any queries or questions along the way.
