The opening ceremony was attended by FSG’s CEO and Board Member Maj-Gen. Abdul Aziz Al Bannai and the company’s Director-General of Operation Riaan Smuts.

“The centre is dedicated to security training facility and will train security guards to deal with different security issues like terrorism, theft and emergencies like fire or accidents,” said Maj-Gen. Al Bannai.

“Our aim is to establish a training academy for security guards. The centre offers basic and advanced courses for men and women security guards,” he added.

The new training centre comprises fully equipped and modern classrooms and caters to the development needs of corporate clients like security companies and individuals.
