About Us

Welcome to the homepages of Spensort Education, Training and Security Services, Spensort SETS or SETS for short.

These pages contain some basic information about our professional qualifications, skills, references and personal backgrounds.


Professional Profile

Spensort is currently a small one man freelance operation conceived in 2011.
 
Teaching and Training

The chief instructor is a qualified higher education vocational teacher (Hämeenlinnan ammattikorkeakoulu) with experience as an English teacher and in higher education having developed and implemented 'blended learning' courses as disparate as Business Continuity Planning (Risk Management) and 'Border Control, Services and New Technologies'. This is supplemented by over 25 years as a self-defence and martial arts instructor.

Security and Risk Management

Security qualifications include an M.Sc. in Security and Risk Management (University of Leicester), a B.A. honours degree in Business Studies with Financial Modelling and certification as a certified protection officer (C.P.O.) with the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO). The training is complimented by both qualifications and practical work experience in Finland as a security supervisor (järjestyksenvalvoja / portsari  in Finnish) and guard (vartija / vahtimestari in Finnish) in the retail sector. He has also been training in the martial arts since 1983 with more than 25 years teaching experience having founded and taught three clubs since 1987. This includes the establishment of his own personal security, conflict intervention and management school and the development of the Assault Awareness and Risk Management (A.A.R.M.) courses designed for the general public.

Project Management

Other supporting work experience includes substantial experience in IT software development project management, which is useful for initiating, managing and leading projects, process development and general planning in any arena, including security management and education development projects from web tools to  usability/user interface and instructional design. This fundamental project management knowledge underpins web-based and eLearning specific methodologies such as ADDIE, including those used in business continuity planning and security management in general. Whilst not conventional to do so, some aspects of project management methodology are almost directly applicable to business continuity planning, security operational skills and mission planning just as much as they are to web-based training and eLearning  education development programmes.
 
Cross-disciplinary skills and expertise

Teaching, security management and criminology are by definition, multi-disciplinary studies. This broad work experience and extensive education and training provide a useful cross-fertilization of skills and knowledge with many insights that cannot be gained from expertise in any one discipline alone. Cross-disciplinary study has both  horizontal and vertical dimensions for which, the ability to link and present the various skills and disciplines within a coherent framework guided by consistent principles and concepts at all levels of application, no matter the context, is an invaluable skill that enhances non-linear (out of the box) diagnostic, reflective and critical thinking. The training provides benefits far beyond the traditional borders of basic physical security provision, such as staff morale and effectiveness (i.e. savings in operating costs and labour turnover), customer satisfaction and third party security / public relations, where customers and other associates or affected persons are concerned.
 
Backed by a philosophy of continuous learning, research and development, this holistic approach allows us to ease and speed your learning with accelerated learning programmes tailored to your needs.
 
Training is conducted in Finnish or English as needed.
