Additional information
  • It is expected that all individuals attending this course hold a nationally recognised trainer qualification and are competent in these areas, as the course does not cover how to be a trainer or the general principles of adult learning, methodologies and practices. 
  • No previous ViSOR experience is required, as the course will cover all of the system’s available functionality.
  • This is an assessed course, meaning an 80% pass mark needs to be achieved in order to successfully complete the course. 
  • In order to be able to deliver ViSOR end-user training locally, your organisation requires a College of Policing licence that includes the ViSOR licence schedule. This has been arranged with most Home Office forces, but if you work for a different organisation, check that you hold the relevant licence. If not, please contact the ICT training team to set this up.


Scheduled ViSOR train the trainer courses run periodically at the College’s Ryton site.

This course can also be delivered locally at an organisation’s own site, provided the venue meets the ViSOR system’s technical requirements.
