Today I kick off a year long journey to complete some personal development (and its not my SIA license), its the Security Institutes Diploma in Security Management run by Perpetuity Training.
I have pondered over numerous training routes over the last 6 months or so, even considered taking the plunge and progressing down a more academic route but if I’m honest I don’t think I can commit 3 or 4 years to it! I enjoy my weekends with the wife (she might read this), my kids and the associated free taxi service that I provide, but I also want to really progress my career and invest time in that. It’s a catch 22 situation as arguably a degree would lead to progression but I’m specifically talking about the day job and in the short term (not 4 years time).
I don’t think for one minute that the Diploma will be a breeze but it is only a year of commitment which will result in a recognised qualification at the end of it. If your interested it covers the following areas and not all are ‘security’ specific…..
- Understanding security
- Threats to security
- Risk management
- The legal system
So busy times ahead, no doubt a little stress and late nights! Please feel free to put these submission dates in your diaries and give me a gentle reminder as I will no doubt get to the day before and frantically sit down trying to complete my assignment! The submission dates for the modules are:
- Module 1: 6th December 2012
- Module 2: 14th February 2013
- Module 3: 25th April 2013
- Module 4: 4th July 2013
- Module 5: 12th September 2013
I will keep you posted along the way!!
