New Delhi, 16 April (MTNews): With an objective to make the northeast a hub of the private security industry, the Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI) on Sunday announced plans to set up eight centres of excellence to train youth in the northeast.
These centres, according to CAPSI Chairman Kunwar Vikram Singh, will be set up in the capital cities of each of the eight northeastern states which will galvanize the private security industry by creating jobs and opening new business opportunities.
The CAPSI, which is the umbrella organization of the Indian private security industry representing around 25,000 agencies and over 1 crore private security personnel, also plans to start three Drone Pilot Training Academies in the NE Region.
“Our Aviation Division will set up a Flying Club to impart training for commercial pilots, cabin crews and aircraft maintenance support staff. The Centre of Excellence will impart training in Aviation Security as per global standards,” Singh added.
The CAPSI has ties with some of the leading global security education organizations like the International Federation of Protection Officers (IFPO), the Association of Investigation & Security Agencies Regulators (USA) and The Security Institute of UK for training and placement of the trained youth in foreign countries.
