Comments from Participants

“I am pleased with it. It’s fascinating to see how far e-learning has come in just a few years and how easy, and non-disruptive to the learning process it is

“I’ve been working in aviation security for many years but still learned a great deal.”

“I would include this as a mandatory module for all policing/customs and immigration officers dealing with national security/anti-terror in the Western world. It will definitely influence the thinking of most security agents in a way that will allow them to more clearly identify threats”.

“I am sold on the courses and will look forward to continuing with other programs once I have completed this certificate”

“I work overseas 30–50% of the time. It is an ideal course for someone in this position who still wishes to study”.

“The program is great. I am excited about future classes.”
