AA, RIMSCO con­clude train­ing diploma course

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Aus­tralian Acad­emy (AA) In­sti­tute for Stud­ies and Train­ing, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Risk Man­age­ment and Se­cu­rity Con­sult­ing Com­pany (RIMSCO), con­cluded a diploma train­ing course in pro­grams per­ti­nent to se­cu­rity and de­fense af­fairs (Se­cu­rity Man­age­ment). AA was ini­ti­ated to be an ef­fec­tive part­ner to the na­tional ef­forts aim­ing to up­grade the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, in ad­di­tion, AA is keen to pro­vide in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tional stan­dards of train­ing, and de­velop a cur­ricu­lum in line with the pro­fes­sional la­bor mar­ket re­quire­ments.

The train­ing course de­liv­ered aims at de­vel­op­ing the se­cu­rity man­age­ment skills of the par­tic­i­pants by pro­vid­ing the tools, abil­i­ties and knowl­edge that en­able them to man­age se­cu­rity crises, emer­gency plans dur­ing evac­u­a­tions, so are qual­i­fied prior tak­ing over their roles and of­fi­cial du­ties in op­er­at­ing and man­ag­ing the over­all se­cu­rity sys­tems at the Kuwait Min­istry of Elec­tric­ity & Wa­ter (MEW). The course cov­ered a set of top­ics re­lated to qual­ity plan­ning, im­ple­men­ta­tion and devel­op­ment in the se­cu­rity train­ing process.

It ad­dresses the im­por­tance of de­vel­op­ing the se­cu­rity aware­ness and dis­sem­i­nat­ing the cul­ture of main­tain­ing se­cu­rity, the law and or­der, as well as plan­ning strate­gies to man­age and con­front se­cu­rity crises, and the ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy in pre­par­ing and im­ple­ment­ing the emer­gency and evac­u­a­tion plans. It also con­tains prin­ci­ples of eval­u­at­ing the risks and des­ig­nat­ing the weak­nesses in the fa­cil­i­ties and in­stal­la­tions, and the role of se­cu­rity man­ager in risk man­age­ment and pre­ven­tion, and the sys­temic ap­proach for se­cu­rity de­ci­sion-mak­ing and cri­sis man­age­ment.

Train­ing lasted for nine months, where the train­ing strat­egy was di­vided into five mod­ules, in­clud­ing the con­cept and prin­ci­ples of mod­ern se­cu­rity en­vi­ron­ment, se­cu­rity aware­ness, se­cu­rity threats, emer­gency and cri­sis man­age­ment method­olo­gies, how to man­age and as­sess risks, Kuwaiti la­bor law and leg­is­la­tion, as well as the man­age­ment tasks and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the se­cu­rity man­ager. It is worth men­tion­ing that AA has been keen to hire a team of lo­cal and re­gional ex­perts to ben­e­fit from their ex­per­tise and en­rich knowl­edge at dif­fer­ent lev­els of work, aim­ing to pro­vide dis­tinct train­ing ser­vices that help achieve devel­op­ment and up­grade ef­fi­ciency in the long run in the Kuwait la­bor mar­ket.

Or­ga­niz­ing such cour­ses is due to the com­mit­ment of AA to­wards the var­i­ous en­ti­ties in the State of Kuwait, to achieve lead­er­ship in hu­man in­vest­ment, and up­grade the level of ed­u­ca­tion in the State of Kuwait. Par­tic­i­pants to the diploma course in special pro­grams re­lat­ing to se­cu­rity and de­fense af­fairs (se­cu­rity man­age­ment) were awarded in­ter­na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of Per­pe­tu­ity Train­ing In­sti­tute - UK, and a cer­tifi­cate ap­proved by AA.

In con­clu­sion of the train­ing pro­gram, AA held a cer­e­mony in the au­di­to­rium of the Aus­tralian Col­lege, where they de­liv­ered hon­or­ing tro­phies and cer­tifi­cates of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the par­tic­i­pants, in the pres­ence of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of a com­mit­tee to mon­i­tor the se­cu­rity res­o­lu­tions of the cab­i­net, Colonel Mo­ham­mad Al-Farsi, Ad­vi­sor of Se­cu­rity Plan­ning Af­fairs, Colonel Nabeel AlSafi, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Se­cu­rity Projects, Colonel Salah Al-Su­mait, Train­ing Di­rec­tor.
