Training News


On 14 and 15 October 2016 an exciting and brand new Security Risk Assessment Course was launched at the Omega Training Academy.

The Security Industry has been lacking a tailor-made course for an extensive period of time and the launch of this course has been timeous with all the turmoil and security risk situations arriving due to protests and the continuous threats against various assets on a national basis.

Risk assessment remains a critical first step in the security protocol process for all businesses. Despite being a key component in risk management planning, it is often overlooked and the reality is that there is an industry-wide shortage of the necessary skills and knowledge to address it.

Twelve (12) Delegates attended the first module of the course and it was presented by Dr Lyon Pretorius a Principal Fellow of the International Security Management Institute (ISMI®) UK and the course is also endorsed by this institute.  The delegates completed the course with enthusiasm and had a different perspective in terms of security risks thereafter.

Instructor Mr Andre Eckhard
