About us

Private Security is a multi-billion rand industry, responsible for the well-being and safety to millions around the world. In South Africa, Private Security accounts for more than 2 million jobs and encompasses a wide range of duties and responsibilities. Our courses are tried-and-tested through experience in the field, taking lessons learnt from international best practices.

How it started

With more than two decades of experience between the founders, in the Military and Private Security division, it was noted that the aging force and knowledge was quickly exiting the field. The unique skillset, developed over years of first-hand experience, was not being transferred to the younger recruits in a sustainable manner.

The decision to transfer the expertise became a priority.

Course material, recognised by the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority (PSiRA), was introduced to the training center. Providing inexpensive, and invaluable, access to thousands of students.

Professional moderators, who undergo continuous retraining and skills development, became part of a dedicated team with a central goal – delivering a high quality product in an affordable and accessible manner.
