Security Supervisor – ICTS
Hi all, Haven’t posted on site for a while, and this is the first time I’ve posted about this particular subject. I’m considering studying an online Level 3 AET during my downtime on deployment.. as I’ve been offered a training role with a reputable company through a colleague of mine, which I’d like to explore. (52 is a little old to still be wiping people’s arses for them on active deployments…
the pipe and slippers are calling me, but I’m not retiring yet.) My question is, can anybody recommend a course – through personal experience, or one that they might have completed themselves please ? Thanks. R.
