How to get a CCTV job

The basic rule of thumb is that a CCTV operator needs to be PSIRA Registered. You need to have a current and legal driver's license in addition to a clean criminal history. You should also have knowledge of security systems such as alarm systems and CCTV surveillance systems.

How to become a CCTV operator

Although there are no official prerequisites for admittance, many employers prefer applicants to have some training from a recognised institution that provides professional CCTV training in South Africa.

The length of time required for training can range anywhere from one day to a few weeks, depending on the specifics of the curriculum and the modules that are studied.

Pros and cons of a CCTV job in South Africa
  • You would be required to perform your duties inside, in a centralised control centre, in front of multiple screens.

  • You will operate independently or as part of a group of other operators. 
  • Your people's skills are constantly refined as you constantly need to be good at reading people, both in terms of their expressions and their body language. 
  • It's a great feeling to give individuals the power to be safe, especially if they've been a victim of crime in the past. 
  • The work can be stressful as it necessitates careful attention to detail and is frequently carried out in environments in which maintaining a state of constant awareness is essential.
