Training section launched by IPSA

International Professional Security Association (IPSA) : 08 May, 2009  (Company News)
Training companies can now benefit from dedicated section and resources at the International Professional Security Association
The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) is launching a dedicated section for individuals and companies involved in training. The launch will take place today, Friday 8th May, at the Edexcel BTEC Security Training Forum in London.

Training is a unique part of the security industry which provides and enhances skills and knowledge, although until now it has been an area without an independent voice.

The Association has for some time had a separate fee structure for training companies, but it has not provided targeted support for the sector. Now it is intended to add both focus and support, particularly for the numerous individuals working as trainers, whether self employed or within organisations. To this end a new category of IPSA individual membership of 'Trainer' is being introduced, to help identify and differentiate the individuals working in the sector.

It will then be possible to distribute information on training related matters by e-mail specifically to those individual and company members working in the sector.

In addition, regular events will be arranged for trainers to get together, share best practice and also raise issues and concerns which IPSA, as a representative body, will be able to ensure are addressed in the appropriate quarter. A Trainers' Committee will be put in place to assess demand and, where appropriate, arrange these meetings.

IPSA has always had "promoting professionalism" as a key aim of the Association. We now intend to take this a significant step further by directly involving those professionals who bring skills and knowledge to the whole industry.

Sallyann Baldry, National Business Development Manager at Edexcel, commented "We welcome the introduction of a category of membership for individual trainers, IPSA already provides professional association membership to many existing Edexcel approved training centres, but this will additionally provide for independent trainers to join an association that justifiably prides itself on the services it provides to trainers, in terms of professional development and networking opportunities."
