Industry Experience

I have over 36 years of security industry experience, having spent 27 of those years working as a security guard and crowd controller in my own business. During this time, I also employed security guards and crowd controllers. I also successfully completed all the vocational training that a security guards and crowd controllers were required to undertake to maintain their industry licences.
