The Security Officer Development Programme: Developing Practical Skill & Techniques PetroTech

Security Officers are professionals who work in a variety of organizations and with diverse groups of people. As such, they require the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance both personal and organizational performance. As quickly as the world and its continents change and develop, so do risks and threats of dealing with people of this world. Organizations can no longer view security departments and employees as lower level functions. In order to ensure staff in these departments function effectively within the realm of the larger organizational objectives, it is essential that security officers have skills to lead their staff and department teams and individual officers have the required skills and expertise to provide an effective response to implementing successful security.

In order to achieve a consistent level of best practice in security, the officer needs to understand the requirements of the industry, their organization and department, their team and their security projects.

This comprehensive seminar is designed to equip delegates with skill, knowledge and ability to perform their duties to international standards and current best practice in security. The course is an opportunity to develop security skills that will enhance any organization or individual officer's ability to handle conflict situations and security solutions. The course is structured to develop knowledge in technical security areas of roles and functions, risk assessment, legislation, health/safety, incident control and crisis management. This highly interactive and hands-on seminar is designed to empower participants to have an opportunity to learn, understand and practice techniques that make security work more efficient and effective, therefore creating conditions for productivity.
