Anitua Security Branches Out With AVTEC

Anitua Protective Services are going from strength to strength and has been vindicated for its decision to focus on training and the delivery of excellence in regard to security services with plenty of new business.

APS has attracted the attention of several high-profile businesses and has managed to secure a number of long-term contracts resulting in us fast becoming the security company of choice across the Islands Region.

In other security news, APS has branched out with its new venture Anitua Vocational Training and Educational Centres (AVTEC). AVTEC was initially created to service internal security services training needs however it rapidly became apparent that there was a considerable gap in vocational training across PNG. 

Acting Genderal Manager of APS, Dan Simpson, reports: "After industry, consumer and National Training Council (NTC) consultation it was decided to expand our training capability to include a greater variety of courses with both NTC and Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) accreditation." Some of these courses include:

  • Cert III & IV OHS 
  • Cert IV Front Line Management
  • Cert I,II &III Hospitality
  • Cert IV TAE
  • First Aid Training (Red Cross Certified) 
  • Fire Extinguisher Usage 
  • S1,2 & 3 Mine Supervisor 
  • High Risk Work (Working At Heights; Confined Spaces )
  • Microsoft Suite of Products 

In order to keep up with the growing demand for training, AVTEC recently commissioned a purpose built training facility in Kokopo ENB and refurbished another existing facility. As the demand grows, so too will AVTEC with plans already in the pipeline for an eight-classroom facility to be built later in 2015.

The development of AVTEC has generated plenty of community interest with support pledged from Local Level Government, the PNG Women’s Association, and several major businesses.
