What a difference two years can make. Started on June 27, 2013, the Caribbean Institute for Security and Public Safety (CISPS) has become a name synonymous with specialist training for security and public safety personnel.
Our success is in the numbers. In just two short years, almost 1,000 security and public safety personnel have been trained in over 25 distinct topics. Added to this feat, we have held over 50 courses and over 15 customized training sessions to satisfied corporate clients.
Our training programmes are delivered using a hands-on approach that seeks to boost the productivity and effectiveness of each participant which will ultimately lead to the improved overall quality of their organization’s performance.
According to Principal Ian Ramdhanie, “The CISPS continues to grow month by month, year by year, delivering top-notch training to our increasing client base. We are strongly committed to delivering industry-relevant, quality training and certification to personnel at all levels. The CISPS addresses the direct needs of the industry through constant dialogue with our stakeholders as we aim to develop security and public safety personnel of the highest standard!”
We deliver on our mandate to share expert industry analysis on current trends and developments. This is done through, The Protector, our quarterly newsletter with five issues already published and available for free on our website.
Principal Ramdhanie added, “Our recent partnership with the Miami Dade College School of Justice has delivered significant success in bringing international training right at our doorsteps without the need of having to go abroad.”
The portfolio of courses that the CISPS offers caters to all sizes of organizations, public and private sector institution, and importantly, the individuals who want to better themselves.
Principal Ramdhanie noted that “there is a greater need for training and retraining of officers and administrative staff in this sector so that the country and the region can benefit from improved ways of doing things. It shouldn’t be business as usual. We have to get with the times.”
Ramdhanie disclosed that “The security and public safety industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world as nations, organizations and individuals desire improved safety. Growth rates are projected to be over 20% in the next 10 years or so. With an estimated over 50,000 persons in the public and private security and public safety sector in Trinidad and Tobago, bountiful careers are on the horizon.”
The CISPS looks forward to continue leading the way in providing expert hands-on training in security and public safety in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean as a specialist institution.
