The objectives of the programme include encouraging and actively promoting the advancement of professionalism in the secur-ity industry, through effective and appropriate education, training, and development.

The programme is administered by an Endorsement Committee, chaired by Professor Kris Pillay of UNISA’s Department of Criminology and Security Science, to ensure that the highest standards are established and maintained.

ARC Training specialises in preparing security professionals from all over the world with the knowledge, skills and ability to make a valuable contribution to organisational objectives and to enhance professional credibility. They believe that their clients deserve the best training experience, so work hard to deliver the well-known ‘ARC Training experience’ wherever they are. Working with the best trainers, they ensure learners gain their qualifications in an interactive, engaging and motivating training environment – and enjoy their learning experience.

ARC courses are all internationally accredited and have been delivered internationally for many years.

The first courses to be endorsed by SAIS were:

• Security Coordination and Management (Pearson Edexcel BTEC accredited).

• Security Management Stage 3 (Skills for Security accredited).

SAIS chairman, Dave Dodge, visited the training courses when they were delivered in Johannesburg recently and was impressed by the focus on the practical application of knowledge gained, which the learners would be able to apply in their workplaces immediately after the completion of the training.

ARC Training has increased its training opportunities in South Africa throughout 2017. The details can be found at
