Introduction
The NASDU Level 3 National Award for the General Purpose Security Dog Handler aims to provide the additional skills, knowledge and understanding required to ensure the provision of a higher level of professional service as a Security Dog Handler. This Award has been developed by NASDU to meet the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Security Dog Handling and the training requirements contained in BS 8517-1:2009.

For Whom Suitable
Experienced General Purpose Security Dog Handlers who wish to advance their existing skills and to meet the requirements of the BS 8517-1: 2009 which recommends Security Dog Handlers undertake continuation training.

Course Duration
An approved NASDU instructor / trainer shall assess learners existing ability and advise on the number of hours required to achieve the award, which shall be a minimum of 100 guided learning hours. Training will be delivered over 16 days and will be of sufficient duration to ensure competency, having a minimum of 100 guided learning hours (GLH). GLH’s are recorded hours of direct training and assessment given to an individual and not the duration of a course.

Programme Structure
The programme is a mixture of theory and practical tuition for which all assessment criteria must be met. Prior LearningAll learners shall have achieved the Level 2 Award for General Purpose Security Dog Handling or hold a NASDU Basic General Purpose Dog Handler certificate, having completed a minimum of 50 guided learning hours. The learner shall hold an appropriate S.I.A. Licence (unless exempt) and should be trained and competent in a general security officer role. The learner is also expected to have completed an appropriate number of continuation training hours since their last assessment and provide evidence of this. Learners who have proven GP dog handling experience as a police or prison officer or a member of HM Armed Forces within the last 5 years may apply for accreditation of prior learning (APL) of up to 70 GLH’s

Assessment
The assessment shall be carried out by an Approved NASDU Trainer/Instructor and internally moderated by NASDU and externally moderated by the appropriate Awarding Body.

Prior Learning
All learners shall have achieved the Level 2 Award for General Purpose Security Dog Handling or hold a NASDU Basic General Purpose Dog Handler certificate, having completed a minimum of 50 guided learning hours. The learner shall hold an appropriate S.I.A. Licence (unless exempt) and should be trained and competent in a general security officer role. The learner is also expected to have completed an appropriate number of continuation training hours since their last assessment and provide evidence of this. Learners who have proven GP dog handling experience as a police or prison officer or a member of HM Armed Forces within the last 5 years may apply for accreditation of prior learning (APL) of up to 70 GLH’s.A minimum of 30 GLH’s shall be required for final assessment and examination and to confirm understanding of the private security industry dog sector. The dog must possess the suitable drive required and been assessed and certified as a NASDU Level 2 General Purpose Security Dog. It is strongly recommended that learners and dogs who are attending the course with their own dog are assessed prior to commencement of training for which additional GLH’s may be identified.

Suitable Dog
Please note if you bring your own dog we can not guarantee his suitability and we reserve the right to remove the dog from the training program should we deem it unsuitable. In these circumstances no course fees are refundable. Hence, it’s in your best interest to obtain a suitable dog. Should the handler and /or the dog not achieving all of the practical assessments in the time allowed it may mean additional training time is required or the handler carrying out continuation training in his/her own time and returning at a later date to be reassessed. This is a team qualification (dog and handler) and is 16 days in duration which may or may not be long enough to train a level 3 GP dog.

Sale of Dogs
We also provide fully or part trained dogs for sale in conjunction with the course which would greatly increase your chances of achieving as a team in the time allocated. We have a limited number of course dogs that we can loan for the course duration.

Continuation Training
To help leaners who didn’t achieve the NASDU accreditation within the time allowed, continuation training is provided free of charge with the exception of accommodation cost.

Progression
The successful learner can proceed onto detection dog handling or ultimately onto security dog handler training. The award can also provide underpinning knowledge to assist learners to progress to NVQ’s and higher qualifications.
