As a Colonel in  British Army, I attended the course myself and have since sent several staff members to attend.


The course gives an in depth understanding of security risk issues and how to tackle them, imparting life-long skills that can be employed in a wide range of situations both inside the forces and in future civilian employment. The quality of the lecturers is excellent, from post-graduate level academics to published authors and top end security professionals. Students quickly improve their verbal presentations, report writing and planning skills through practical exercises under pressure. The SRMC also provides several qualifications recognised in the security sector and helps individuals develop their professional networks.


A number of military personnel as well as Service leavers on the SRMC found it invaluable. It would be an ideal course to be able to access through the ELCAS route.

I can now quite genuinely put my hand on my heart and say with absolute integrity that the PGI Training Security Risk Management Consultants course is up there as being one of the best and most rewarding professional courses that I have had the pleasure of attending. The quality of the guest speakers and instructors that we have worked with was exceptional. Never before have I seen a course gather so many world leaders in their respective fields. Also of exceptional quality were the delegates themselves. Strong personal and professional relationships have been formed, which will only further nourish our networks and capabilities.

If you are looking to forward your development, leaving the Police Service, Armed Forces or already well established and experienced within the Security Sector like a lot of the people sat in the classroom over the previous two weeks. I would highly encourage anyone to attend the Security and Risk Management Consultants Course. It is set in a great location with little expense spared, great facilities and supported by a highly professional and dedicated team. The course also offers great add-ons after completion supplied by the SRMC ™ team, as well as an ideal arena to network, affording an ideal environment to promote yourself and your company’s name to other influential members of the sector.

The course was excellent, challenging and a great confidence builder on the road to becoming a Security & Risk Consultant. It helped me understand better and build on processes that I had experienced working in the Military and in the Private Security Industry. The broad spectrum of subjects covered within risk management was an excellent insight into other avenues within the security industry that I had little or no knowledge of. The Guest speakers and lecturers were of an excellent standard and brought a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience to varying subjects covered. In particular the ‘Crisis and Disaster Management’ day with Professor Edward Borodzicz and ‘Detecting Deception’ with John Taylor were very interesting and informative. On the whole I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to progress in security management or to advance their experience into a qualification

– Dan Armitage - Security Consultant, Infinite Security Solution.


Having undertaken numerous training courses over a 30 year career in law enforcement, this course ranks amongst the best I have attended. The knowledge and awareness of the guest lecturers is second to none. The course benefits from having students from diverse backgrounds, my course had an FD from a Mining company, Risk Manager from an Airport and a training Manager in the Offhsore Wind Industry. There is not a course on the market that can match the expertise in the SRMC
