Copenhagen, 5th February 2013. The Danish education institute Copenhagen Technical College (KTS) has realised that introducing IT into the manned guarding industry will improve the security industry and also rise the status for the profession as a whole. Studying the market, KTS found GuardTools® from Blue Mobile Systems to be a new solution available to the Danish market. After signing a contract early January, the school will now offer its students the possibility to become GuardTools® certified.
“Introducing GuardTools® to our students as part of our curriculum is exciting for our school. It can really be seen as part of linking our courses and programs to the ever changing real world. We are really happy to take this next modernisation step in our trainings focused on the security industry”, says Kira Carlbäch Nielsen, Head of Education at the department for Construction and User Service.
Fini Hansen, responsible for training and education at the section Security Guard adds: “Having listened to a number of Danish manned guarding companies, I realised that some of them were increasing their competitive focus back to the clients. They have chosen to counter the price fight in the industry with quality services that include real time, transparent security information towards their client base. It felt obvious I had to teach my students in these topics”.
Björn Andersson, training responsible for GuardTools® introduced the teachers and students at the school to the system. “Teaching the teachers at the school, together with our founder Peter Andreasson, was a really nice experience. The teachers combine teaching talent with a well anchored understanding of the industry. And their enthusiasm for introducing GuardTools® presented us with an easy job. It is also very rewarding for us to see KTS soon delivering “GuardTools® certified” students into our industry in Denmark”.
