The VSST Level 1 Study Guide was written by two experts in the field: Vlado Damjanovski and Howard Kohnstamm.

Vlado Damjanovski is an author, lecturer and CCTV expert who is well known to the Australian and international CCTV industry. Damjanovski was a leading advocate for the development of the first Austrialian CCTV standards, which were published in 2006, and he chairs the Australian CCTV Standards Subcommittee.

Howard Kohnstamm is one of nine subject matter experts who developed the NICET video security systems practice analysis. He has the distinction of being the only author and trainer who is an active systems integrator, served as a NICET subject matter expert and has passed all six NICET video security systems exams.
