In addition to their membership, IFPO and learning partner, Nuology, will be delivering its accredited learning packages both online and in person, over the next year, to various parts of the security team who work on facilities, theatres and events.

Scott Paterson CPP PSP, Director of Security Operations – Europe, Middle East & Africa, said: “Investment in personal development and training for all our Security Officers and Supervisors is paramount to the success of enabling our business to operate in a safe and secure environment.

“We welcome the opportunity to further enhance this with bespoke and accredited courses through IFPO meeting the needs of both the Security Officers and our company. We have a multi-pronged approach to training and the IFPO angle will only add value to our Security Officers, further motivating them within their role, and providing them continued progressive education as we collectively work to Protect the Magic.
