What is Covert Testing?

Redline’s Covert Testing is an ‘unannounced’ Quality Assurance test conducted by a Quality Assurance Test Team to assess the security provision, protocols and procedures in place at a client location to detect a prohibited or restricted item in a normal operational environment. The use of Covert Testing allows our clients to measure the effectiveness of their security screening standards and capabilities within a live operational environment and assist them to identify best practice, and areas for improvement and risk mitigation.

We are delighted to welcome Scott, Dan and Andy as new recruits to our Covert Testing team. With a vast wealth of experience between them, they will be supporting us in providing Quality Assurance testing to our clients.


Scott is a Security Industry Authority (SIA) approved Close Protection Operative with extensive Military and Private Security experience, he has worked in Hostile Environments and held a range of positions within the private security sector, specialising in Close Protection.

Scott had this to say upon joining the team “I believe the skillset and work experiences I possess will not only bring value to the Redline team but in turn working for Redline I know will help sharpen and strengthen my skills. Although this is a complete career change for myself, I intend to learn from a very experienced team and enjoy a successful and exciting career.”


Dan has a history of excelling within in his roles, always offering an outstanding experience to clients.  His experience gained in previous roles have given him an extensive and deep understanding of customer relations, effective working relationships and mentoring colleagues.

Dan comments “Upon joining Redline and the Air Partner Group I hope to bring experience I have gained in previous technical roles to an industry leading team and look forward to the challenges ahead”.


Andy believes in the core tenants of trust, safety and professionalism. As a former Prison Officer he has a broad understanding of many areas of security and knowledge of the importance of integrity, teamwork and communication.
