With the crime rates rising, police are being pushed to their limits. Thus, law enforcement is forced to allocate their resources to violent crime, rendering other crimes such as property and theft low priority. In response, communities across America are gearing up with video surveillance systems. Their motivation is to protect themselves, their families, their homes, their companies and their employees.
A properly designed video surveillance system can very efficiently provide the evidence that police need to quickly resolve a crime; hence this opportunity. There is a clear need for local, properly trained design consultants who can help home and business owners make informed decisions when it comes to securing their property.
The goal of this program is to develop these local consultants. If you are dedicated and follow our guidance, we'll lead you directly to a great second income earned on your schedule. You choose how much you work and how much you make. You will develop skills that are high in demand and provide a community service which is respected and admired.
Backstreet University provides common sense industry advice and education based on over 30 years of design and installation experience. Our expertise offered in this course has been fine-tuned through experience, as we have provided tens of thousands of security camera systems nationwide. We sell over 30,000 surveillance cameras every year and have designed systems for every possible structure: hardened government facilities, industrial, commercial, business, retail, residential, multi-family, apartment complexes, storage facilities, hydroelectric power plants, boat docks, schools, religious centers, congressional offices - if you can think of it, we have likely designed a system for it.
We'll pull back the curtain and show you the industry secrets to becoming a competent security consultant. You’ll learn industry terms and concepts and we’ll teach you to focus on what matters. You’ll learn how to design an effective video surveillance system for any type of structure, how to professionally present yourself, how to perform a site survey, create a professional system design and how to quote your design. We’ll provide a reputable online local presence for you, inbound leads and we'll teach you how to market yourself. You'll learn how to find new clients, build your reputation and become successful as a Security Consultant.
The first step is to complete the Backstreet University Certification Program. Once completed, you will receive digital certification and have a professional presence on the web. You'll be ready for business!
The certification is sectioned off into incremental building blocks that we call courses. Each course requires the previous course to be completed - no jumping ahead! The information in each course is designed to provide a foundation for the knowledge you will receive from the next course.
We are not creating Installers or Technicians!
You will learn proper installation techniques but only for design purposes - you will not be installing anything. You will be a Backstreet advisory consultant rather than a technician or installer. The most complicated tool you will use is a handheld laser range finder, which will be used to pin point target distances so you can suggest cameras and camera locations. Your tools will be a note pad, a site-survey form, our online designer and custom quoting tools. We'll provide the technicians and installers. In other words, you're on the smart end of the deal.
Your time is what you provide. Other than the cost of a background check which is detailed above, your costs are zero. You will not need a business or professional license, insurance, or an office or business phone. This program meets all local and federal government requirements without any of the aforementioned hassles or costs.
The amount of time you should expect to spend completing the program on average is 7-10 hours. The only time restraint is that the program must be completed within 45 days of registration. After that period, the account will reset and you must start the program over.
