New Electronic Security Training Institute Inaugurated in Accra

An electronic security train­ing institute (ESTI) set up to provide training certification and education for Ghana’s electronic security and life safety industry has been opened in Accra.

Set up in April 2022 by Re­sponse One Ghana Limited, to be a leading provider of train­ing certification and continuing education for Ghana’s evolving electronic security and life safety industry, the institute will be a hub to offer training for students in courses such as security, fire and sale certification.

It is also to give an alternative path to technical students who are technically inclined to have a career in the electronic security industry.

Courses to be offered in­clude Certified Alarm Techni­cian- (CAT) Level one, Certified Video Technician (CVT), Cer­tified Systems Integrator (CSI), Certified Service Technician (CST), Certified Security Systems Integrator (CSSI), Certified Alarm Technician (CAT) I, and Certified Security Sales (CSS) among others.

These courses are certified by the Electronic Security Associa­tion (ESA) of the United States of America.

Speaking at the grand opening of the institute last week, founder of Response One Ghana Limited, Mother Company of the insti­tute, Mr George Anderson said on completion of the one month course, students will be support­ed with a dealership programme, where they would be appointed to certain companies and given discounted products to work with.

He revealed that the institute is in the process of acquiring further certification from the Commis­sion for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET).

Mr Anderson stated that the institute has a full scholarship and discount scheme to cater for brilliant but underprivileged students unable to complete due to financial constraints.

“Also, as part of our Social Corporate Responsibility, ESTI is offering a 30 per cent discount to all female applicants while corporate bodies would enjoy an exclusive 20 per cent discount on the total course fees for the regis­tration of three or more partici­pants from a company.”

The Deputy Director-General National Patrol Department of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Rev. Laurencia Akorli, who was the special guest of honour said the technological space has be­come so dangerous and there are too many flaws when it comes to electronic security in Ghana.

However with the coming into being of ESTI, she hoped Ghanaians would take advantage of the training to get the required knowledge in helping prevent crime of any form.

On his part, ACP Rev. Os­car Kofi Amevenku, Director, Community Policing Unit, Tesa­no-Accra said his outfit finds the institute a very important ally in the discharge of their duty as a proactive policing force and rapid crime prevention service, and for this they are happy for the intro­duction of ESTI.
