IPSA provides Maritime Sector with Representation and Training

The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) has recently reintroduced a specialist but limited Maritime Sector to deal with the increased needs of the maritime industry as they affect members, and company contracts. IPSA is offering, within its training programme, courses not only at Port Facility Security Officer and Ship’s Security Officer level, but also for manned guarding companies involved in the physical security of wharves and docks. This “dry side” of maritime security may not be attracting the high profile of piracy, but is of increasing importance due to the threat of terrorism. Additionally, there is the everyday “nitty gritty” work of security, fire prevention, health and safety and the prevention of damage,

IPSA is therefore, building on its course base for supervisors, officers and trainers. However, additionally, bespoke crime prevention, civilian river patrol, bye-law enforcement and, in conjunction with the Institute of Professional Investigators, internal investigation courses will also be available As IPSA is an independent organisation, not profit driven, prices will be competitive.

International Chairman Mike WHITE explained “We have had requests for both training and assessment both within the UK and abroad. Thankfully, we have within the membership all levels of personnel including PFSO trainers, former forces personnel, former dock and port law enforcement personnel and harbour and river patrollers. With the aid of sister organisations, where necessary, we can deliver training and assessment packages worldwide at competitive prices”.
