Great course and updated to the latest trends and threats.

“The course is very well structured, and the content is well thought out. The modules and their placement within the course were also well thought out and the course just seems to flow from module 1 through to module 9.

Even though I have been in Aviation Security [Airport Physical Security component] for 21 years – I found the course to not only be a refresher but provided new insight into the new technology available as well as a more clearly defined mandate from ICAO. I have also gleaned some ideas from the overall course which I hope to apply at my airport.

If you were to ask me should all Airport Security Managers, Supervisors and General Ranks personnel take this course – absolutely…it is well worth the cost of the course.”
