Why Take a Public Safety and Security Course?

Increasing challenges to public safety and security are an ongoing focus for private and public organisations alike. Professionals who work in public safety include law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services. While these can include day-to-day security monitoring and threat prevention, breaches in cyber security and terrorist activities must also be addressed. As a public safety and security practitioner, earning appropriate certifications keep you up-to-date to an ever-evolving industry.

What Will You Learn in a Public Safety Course?

Public safety courses are available across a wide range of levels - from undergraduate certificate and degree programmes to post-graduate diplomas. Many public safety and security courses teach students how to detect, intervene, and alleviate threats at multiple stages. Courses will often cover the following topics:

  • Law enforcement
  • Emergency medical procedures
  • Prison management
  • Legal systems
  • Fire management
  • Rescue procedures
  • National and local safety measures

If you're interested in starting or furthering your career in criminal justice, firefighting, ethics and law, homeland security, or any number of public safety fields, a degree or certificate in public safety is necessary.

  • Can the course accommodate your specific needs?
  • Will the expected finishing level of the course match your requirements?
  • What qualifications does your public safety or security course trainer have?
  • What experience does your trainer have in your professional area?
