The scope and practice of security and public safety particularly in the private sector is continually increasing with government and businesses faced with new emerging criminal trend that challenges security of our communities and business enterprises. Continuous up-skilling of security practitioners both in public and private sectors through training to forestall and tackle the menace of crime is therefore imperative.

  1. Corporate Security Professionals.
  2. Retired and serving security personnel serving in public sector (Military, Police and other para military services)
