Our Participants Speak...

The instructor’s knowledge, experience and anecdotes provide context to the objectives he aims to deliver. Despite the Australian threat environment differing from those overseas, the methodology and techniques remain relevant and current. The risk assessment process in broken down into simple steps and identifies to the ‘real’ risks, not those highlighted by the hype of the media or government.

Highly recommend the training and I’m certainly interested in other material MIP has to offer.

Brilliantly relevant with an approach to likelihood that makes a lot of sense and cuts through the indecision often associated with undertaking risk assessments in relation to terrorism. So many stories and videos that made it all very real.

Excellent introduction into Methodologies & Techniques in security planning. The course provided an excellent base on which to build my abilities to conduct an assessment.

The training exceed my initial expectations. What I learned will have a huge impact on how I now look at and do my job. I wish I had more time in a day to be able to get everything done aI thought about and wrote down during the course. I would love to attend any future courses that may be arranged. I learned so much and enjoyed the week and appreciated the knowledge and expertise of the Instructor.
