In the context of current policy and regulatory developments in the country, the private security industry is destined to continue to play an important role. The Hon’ble Prime Minister’s emphasis on “Make in India” will encourage foreign capital into manufacturing and other such industries. This will not only trigger demand for private security personnel, but will compel industry to adopt processes and practices in sync with international standards. Added to this, the government’s emphasis on “Digital India” will introduce new security technology into the industry. With the technological advancements in every sphere of activity, it is necessary that private security professionals remain abreast with them to bring about better security execution in their deployment theaters. The International College for Security Studies (ICSS) established under Pragmatic Educational Society is one of the leading security institutions in the country. It is a matter of great honour for ICSS (Pragmatic Education Society) to partner with Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence to establish Centre for Advanced Training in Security (CATS) at Thiruvananthapuram.
Kerala has been a pioneer in the educational field. It possesses a highly capable, knowledgeable and hard working population base that is well known for its extraordinary flexibility. All these go in to make excellent security professionals. It will be our sincere endeavour to provide top class theoretical and practical training to potential security personnel for employment in the private security industry. The curriculum offered will be all-inclusive, including focus on enhancement of soft skills. I wish KASE and CATS all success in this initiative. I also wish good luck to all participants of various course offered by CATS and I’m sure that they will find training useful.
