The Security Institute of Ireland are pleased to announce the launch of a suite of online courses. Research indicates that on-line courses are a more convenient method of learning, providing candidates with 24 hour access to materials, meaning they can fit their coursework around their current schedule and work at their own pace, without the constraints of normal classroom learning. This provides candidates with an alternative to traditional courses, allowing them to maintain work and family commitments while studying. Online courses are also a more cost effective way of learning, including savings on travel and accommodation expenses.


Course development is undertaken in consultation with industry stakeholders. Extensive national and international research is also carried out to ensure that course content is relevant to the participants, the industry and clients.
