Big big big news for Paladin

Big big big news for Paladin

Paladin is now an RTO

After many years of working through an Auspice agreement with McMillan Staff Development, Paladin Risk Management Services is now a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in its own right.  Paladin now owns the Professional Security & Risk Institute [RTO Code 45173] (although the name will be changing).

I would like to personally thank Ben and Lauren McMillan for their amazing support, guidance, patience and professionalism over the last six years.  There is no doubt that they have played a significant part in allowing me to train close to 2500 people in that period. 

What this means for those planning on attending a course in the future is that there will be more courses and many more options in terms of delivery modes.

Along with the current face-to-face courses being provided, there will be changes made to the on-line delivery with all courses having a scheduled start and end date with regular webinar tutorials.

I am also planning a very exciting initiative – the delivery of a  live streaming course for those that prefer training that is “face-to-face” but have difficulty travelling.  To date, I have had participants travel to undertake my courses from 16 different countries.  This course will provide the opportunity to get the same benefit, but without having to come to Australia. 

In addition, a significant number of on-line self-paced learning courses are being developed. There will be a mix of accredited and non-accredited courses covering a wide variety of topics.  The establishment of my own studio will allow for consistent, fresh and up to date content to be developed and shared.

I am really looking forward to this new chapter and the opportunities it presents to spread the message that we need to stop ‘doing risk management’ and manage risk.
