Praesidium Academy is your go-to resource to pursue online specialist “job readiness” courses in the field of security, safety and violence prevention.
The course author, Scott Taylor, CPP has more than 30 years’ experience in the security and risk industry. It would be hard to find a better credentialed security specialist in Australia. Scott is often contacted by various media sources as a “Security Industry Specialist spokesperson” and also Expert Witness when security related issues surface in the public arena.
I had two staff attend the Conflict Identification & Response Methodology Program training on the 28th October 2021. My staff said the training was fantastic. Clear information, good interaction with Scott – the facilitator and really helpful guidance. One of the team actually used training points when confronted by an intoxicated client in the office. Highly recommend for anyone who interacts with the community

Using Social Media Platforms for Crowded Place
For venue operators, their staff, event managers, security managers and all other personnel, social media is a two-way street.
It can provide invaluable real-time insights into what is actually happening (factual) and what people think may be happening (opinions) on a mass scale.
Platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram represent an efficient way to facilitate engagement with fans and event-goers by communicating everything from promotions to special instructions on game day.
Likewise, these pervasive channels represent a powerful way to anticipate potential trouble by monitoring individual and group comments in the days and weeks leading up to an event, and even during it.
This self-paced 60 min program will provide you with an understanding of the importance of social media before, during and after events and highlight how it can be used to help facilitate a safer event.
