Message from Director

Dear Student,

On behalf of the Centre for Advanced Training in Security (CATS), I welcome you to the programme leading to Post Graduate Diploma in Security Management (PGDSM), Diploma in Security Management (DSM) and Certificate in Security Management (CSM).

The security function has gained immense importance and visibility, as a result of ever increasing economic activities, increased competition, as also the increased risks & threat perceptions. The role of homeland & private security has evolved from a mere watch and ward function to a specialized enabler of the business, contributing not only to the continuity of business but also its growth and resilience.

Although the Global & Indian security industry is growing at a stupendous pace, however, it suffers from lack of skilled and certified manpower. It is estimated that in India, every year 500,000 skilled security professionals are needed to fill the demand of the industry.

The various programmes Security Management, have been designed in accordance with the National Occupation Standards specifically to address the immediate needs to provide security professionals in India and other areas such as Middle East, Asia & Africa etc.

Your learning at the Centre for Advanced Training in Security is the responsibility of our trainers who come with vast experience in this field. They will also be supported by visiting faculty and subject matter experts from the industry. The programme is supported by study material provided by the centre and also through the CATS website. Hands on exposure to equipment and technology at the centre’s facilities would be an integral part of your learning.

On completion of this programme, you will not only have the opportunity to gain employment directly in the security function of an organization but also across various job functions like administration, training, facility management, consulting etc across sectors like manufacturing, IT, Aviation, Hospitality, Tourism, Construction and Retail etc.

Wishing you all the best for a rewarding career on completion of this programme.

Cdr. Suresh P
