Our proven ability to provide top quality operational training is due to our staff’s experience, knowledge and commitment at every level to focus on and fulfill the client’s requirements.

Horizon has assembled a team of professional Instructors with world-class expertise. Our instructors possess an unparalleled range of first hand operational experience gained from many diverse disciplines and possess an intimate knowledge of the global security marketplace and medical practice. Their experience includes many years of certified career training and procedural application in providing specialised security and medical training. Our Instructors teach ‘from the heart’ by using their own experiences, some good and some not so good, to explain a point or to give an example. We believe passionately in the sharing of experiences as a teaching tool.

At Horizon we develop training curriculum by adopting a systematic approach. Through close consultation, client specific needs are identified and course requirements subsequently defined. Customised content is then developed and targeted to directly support client requirements.

We can provide training services in support of all tiers of an organisation. This includes executive and senior management training and mentoring, middle management training, team training and individual training. We may also recommend individualised training modules to ensure active participation from all students and provide the client with a cost-effective method of receiving repeat and refresher training.
