Breaking Down the Diploma of Security & Risk Management
At IgniteLearning private HSC tutoring centre, with seven core units and nine electives to choose from, students that undertake a Diploma of Security & Management course are presented with a host of educational solutions to choose from. This can make it especially easy for students to pick and choose their specialities – which can go a very long way as far as dictating a career path is concerned.
The course itself is best understood when breaking down the collective modules that go into its educational structure. The core include:
An Understanding of Health and Safety Systems
This introductory phase will introduce a student to the concept of health and safety systems in particular, with a focus on risk management, as opposed to assessment.
Security Operation Coordination
The next segment will help a student to learn and identify the way in which security operations work, as well as how to manage them.
Risk Management Options
This core unit focuses on assessing security risk options from a manager’s perspective – especially those that may be deemed urgent.
Quality Customer Service
The fourth aspect will teach a student how to manage a customer service system; not from the point of view as a call specialist, but of a member of administration or supervisor.
Employee Performance Management
This part of the course will train the student in people management; particularly their performance and productivity.
All employees in a management position will need to learn this next segment, as it can teach them how to both develop and manage their own personal work and performance agendas.
Team Effectiveness Assurance
As the entire course is aimed at teaching a student how to manage a businesses’ security and risk factors, this final stage will cover these responsibilities in the most detail.
These seven core units are enough to provide a student with 2/3rd of the qualification and form the basis for the entire program, but they will only be valid if the student also completes an obligatory five out of nine elective course options.
These options vary quite drastically, but as five are required, it’s quite straight forward to pick and choose the types that will be of the most benefit. Subjects like how to recruit, train and select staff have their own advantages, whilst those that focus on developing a marketing plan can be ideal for those that are hoping to incorporate their own business.
There are alternatives, and these can relate to employment within an agency (such as how to assess biometric systems), as well as options to enhance one’s own understanding of the industry (as is the case when choosing to learn how to manage budgets and financial strategies/ plans.
