CASE STUDY

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Chris Lee — Scott, 33, south­ern High­lands, is a se­cu­rity man­ager study­ing a Diploma in Se­cu­rity and Risk Man­age­ment. Q. Why did you study the course and what did you like about it?

A. I was work­ing as a se­cu­rity guard with­out much thought about my ca­reer when I de­cided to study a Cer­tifi­cate II in Se­cu­rity Oper­a­tions. One of the first things I learnt was con­duct­ing oper­a­tions for a VIP event. Not long af­ter this I found my­self do­ing the real thing with the Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter. The course gave me a lot of con­fi­dence. I can man­age se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tions much bet­ter than be­fore.

Q. What are your plans for the fu­ture?

A. I would re­ally like to start my own se­cu­rity busi­ness or work in a more se­nior man­age­ment role. Q. What ad­vice would you give some­one want­ing to get into the in­dus­try?

A. Find out which area you want to fol­low. There are in­ter­est­ing but very di­verse ar­eas so do your home­work.
