Objectives and Contextualisation

The security project is the basic tool that has to be handled by the private security professional, especially in its management aspect or security management, in user companies, they must be contained from the risk analysis, - the statistical studies on events and causes, - the legal framework with the inexcusable obligations and imperatives, but also the limitations, - the organization and management models of both material and human resources, - decision making, - knowledge of the state of the arts of technology applicable, - the procedures for action; the connection with the business or social philosophy and ethics, up to the cost benefit analysis of the implemented security measures and likewise, not to be exhaustive, other elements that are part of the course curriculum.
 
The subject of PRACTICUM I pursues the purpose of placing the theoretical knowledge acquired in the first year subjects and in parallel to which they acquire during the first semester in practical applications much closer to the real practice in which they will find themselves when practicing the profession for which they are preparing. In this first project we will focus on the realization of a comprehensive security project undertaken as an industrial or commercial activity, generally inserted in an industrial, logistics or service area. Each student individually will choose and propose to the teacher, for approval, a different company that can obtain sufficient information about it, and that can be visited physically. In another case, the teacher will assign a model example. On the approved proposal, the student will develop their individual project that will be evaluated throughout the semester. We will classify the diversity of activities that are carried out, understanding the common problems and risks that arise from the joint location of all the agglutinated companies, and simultaneously the differentiated problems of each of them, by virtue of their specificities, especially the activity they develop , the architectural configuration, the dimension, and the particular cosmogony. In these subjects of second year, for not having studied the technical subjects that bring the students to the knowledge of the equipment, and security systems; the alternative options within the study of solutions can only be generic approaches, having to do greater support in this subject in the most advanced course projects.
 
 
TRAINING OBJECTIVES
  • Learn to identify and evaluate the different risks that affect companies and institutions and by virtue of this analysis, consign objectives and design protection programs, consistent, effective and efficient.
  • Apply knowledge about the usual operations (modus operandi) used in criminal risks, or physical laws that are met in technological or catastrophic risks, to be able to virtually create scenarios and risk scenes.
  • Manage the tables, which will be provided to the student, for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the risks.
  • Understand the concepts of valuation for its correct application and completion.
  • Develop the ability to draw conclusions from them and develop and design prevention and protection strategies, with the primary objective of preventing harm, or minimize them if possible. For this it is essential to know equipment, the state of the available technical arts, systems and protection strategies that are the subject of other subjects and that, in this first course of Practicum, they will only be able to know in an incipient way.
  • Initiation to the elaboration of operative plans, protocols and procedures of action and prevention.

Competences

  • Act with ethical responsibility and respect for fundamental rights and duties, diversity and democratic values.
  • Carry out analyses of preventative measures in the area of security.
  • Carry out scientific thinking and critical reasoning in matters of preventions and security.
  • Efficiently manage human resources.
  • Evaluate the technical, social and legal impact of new scientific discoveries and new technological developments.
  • Generate innovative and competitive proposals in research and in professional activity developing curiosity and creativity.
  • Identify the resources necessary to respond to management needs for prevention and integral security.
  • Make changes to methods and processes in the area of knowledge in order to provide innovative responses to society's needs and demands.
  • Plan and coordinate the resources of the three large subsystems that interact in questions of security: people, technology and infrastructures.
  • Respond to problems applying knowledge to practice.
  • Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
  • Students must be capable of collecting and interpreting relevant data (usually within their area of study) in order to make statements that reflect social, scientific or ethical relevant issues.
  • Students must be capable of communicating information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialised and non-specialised audiences.
  • Students must develop the necessary learning skills to undertake further training with a high degree of autonomy.
  • Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
  • Take sex- or gender-based inequalities into consideration when operating within one's own area of knowledge.
  • Use the capacity for analysis and synthesis to solve problems.
  • Work and learn autonomously.

Methodology

Students will take continuous assessment tests (PAC) that will be delivered through the moodle classroom.
 
Students will carry out an evaluation by means of a face-to-face written test on the subject that will take place on the date scheduled at the School.
 
The FINAL CONTINUOUS EVALUATION TEST must be passed in order to add the other two grades.
 
This test may be oral at the discretion of the teacher.
 
It is important to mention that the main objective of the video classes is to resolve the doubts related to the syllabus, therefore it is essential to prepare the topics before each session.
 
 
Reassessment 
In case of not passing the subject in accordance with the criteria mentioned above (continuous assessment), a recovery test may be taken on the date scheduled in the schedule, and which will cover all the contents of the program. To participate in the recovery students must have been previously assessed in a set of activities, the weight of which is equivalent to a minimum of two thirds of the total grade of the subject. However, the grade that will appear in the student's transcript is a maximum of 5-Passed.
 
Plagiarism
Students who need to change an assessment date must submit the application by filling out the document found in the EPSI Tutoring Moodle space.
 
 
Without prejudice to other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, and in accordance with current academic regulations, "in the event that the student commits any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation in the grade of an assessment act. , this assessment act will be graded with a 0, regardless of the disciplinary process that may be instructed, in case there are several irregularities in the assessment acts ofthe same subject, the final grade of this subject will be 0 ". The tests / exams may be written and / or oral at the discretion of the teacher.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
