Stong interest in aviation security diploma
Transguard Education Academy has reported strong interest in its Diploma in Aviation Security (Management).
Transguard Education Academy has reported strong interest in its Diploma in Aviation Security (Management) programme. The part-time course, which is run in conjunction with Perth’s Edith Cowan University (ECU), is entering its second year. More than 60 security professional from around the region, including police, military and private security agencies, graduated from the first course last year.
“The rising popularity of the programme and the phenomenal response can be attributed to a changed mindset towards security,” comments Dr. Abdulla Al Hashimi, senior vice president of Emirates Group Security
“Until 9/11, security was seen, at best, as a necessary inconvenience. Now it has become an integral, fundamental and indispensable component of any industry, especially aviation,” he adds.
The one year long course involves both home study and monthly tutorials held at the Emirates Aviation College in Dubai. Examinations are assessed and graded by ECU.
“The close relationship we have with Emirates Group Security and the students allows us to be dynamic in tailoring the programme to fit the profile of the students and also industry needs,” comments Professor Nara Srinivasan, dean of Transguard Education Academy and an ECU academic.
“For this new year, we have added an optional session on Effective and Critical Writing, which is instrumental in any academic pursuit,” he adds.
Transguard Education Academy is accepting applications for the Diploma in Aviation Security (Management) course until 1st October 2004. Those interested should contact Sharon Santos or Charles Yammine on Tel: 2822360; fax 2822040; or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
