Criminology & Security Professional Development in Person

Commented by Jean-Pierre Roux BSocSc hons; MPhil in Criminal Justice

’If one is in the field of safety and security, then this course is a necessity. You’re either ahead of the game or playing catch-up. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to understand people and be more strategic in their dealings with others, especially when they have people’s lives in their hands.

‘’ HIM provides one with the tools and capability to understand what the other person is thinking. This is crucial when strategizing in all disciplines of criminology/security or for business projects as well as in one’s personal life. Being able to tell what the other person is feeling and thinking is a massive bonus and leverage in any social situation”

Security success depends on the level of situational awareness of the decision maker on the ground and reaction speed

”The MiM Human Investigation Management workshop has unarguably been the most useful, relevant workshop that I have ever attended. It was thoroughly engaging, practical and thought provoking. This workshop is highly recommended, not only to Security Professionals like myself, but for all sectors of business. I look forward to working my way through the course material over the coming weeks.

”The master in mind, Human investigation management course has been invaluable to me.It affords each practitioner the opportunity to see the truth before their eye.More often than not, we do not see what is ‘really’ taking place before us. A lot of misinterpretation to our surroundings and Master in Mind Human investigation management, invokes the brain to rise to the potential of being situational aware and therefore making each decision through your day more accurate. This training is the perfect way to filter and produce an ‘unfiltered’ truth of all the exposure we are subjected to everyday.

By Jono: Security Company Director

” I found the workshop most informative, as it showed me that I do possess the skills within myself to make a difference, and to be a vital cog in the decision making process.What I found most interesting is that the presenter did not make use of any visuals or paperwork, which to me indicated that the presenter was presenting out of experience.What interested me more is that the presentation was based on experiences around the globe. I also like the idea that the presentation was not a once off talk show, but that the presenter will have follow – ups with attendees”

By Reginald: Security Manager [Hotel]

”I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, which was highly interactive and insightful throughout. The key topics including International culture gestures, Human natural indicators and Deception Detection & investigative Interviewing, among others, we’re all relevant considering my daily encounters in the Hotel security environment. I am now looking forward to the next stage of this Human Investigations learning via the e-connect application for the next 12 months. I would recommend the Master In Mind workshop to all Hotel & Casino Security Managers”

By Deon: Security Manager [Hotel]

” I am a security professional working in high risk environments and interacting daily with volatile people. Additionally, my employment involves employee vetting and intelligence sourcing and monitoring in secure facilities.

Deception detection is a major aspect of both my job requirement and personal safety of myself, colleagues and the general public. After attending the MIM HIM – Human Investigation Management – course I have found a significant and near immediate increase in my situational awareness and acuity to behaviour analysis, substantiated intelligence reporting, vetting and investigative interviewing. The Deception Detection and Investigative Interviewing techniques delivered in the course by Dr. Jon Hodson, provide research based techniques delivered in a methodical and reality based program to overview and progressively develop comprehensive skills to not only detect, but assess deception as well as underlying intent which may be based in unclear reasoning, either conscious or subconscious, malign or protective. I found the face-to-face element of the course to be practical and enjoyable and delivered by a highly credible, experienced and supportive facilitator, Dr. Jon Hodson. Furthermore, I have found the supplementary on-line components to be highly enriching and easily digestible for people of any professional background. I highly recommend the MIM HIM course to anyone involved in security work of any field, from door work to crowd control, through to emergency response and counter-intelligence, or even individuals interested in seeking truth in their day to day interactions with others”

By Michael: Security Professional

”Having attended an advanced course in Psychologically Motivated Crimes(Serial Killers/Rapists) during the time when I served in the SAPS Detective Services,we received instruction on the basic signs that somebody is lying.While it was not intensive, I found it very interesting. When I attended the one on one MASTER -IN-MIND:HUMAN INVESTIGATION MANAGEMENT workshop with you, it rekindled that interest,and I enjoyed doing the full 9 week e connect course immensely, with my situational awareness concerning my surroundings and my interactions with the people around me reaching new heights.I am really impressed with the outcome.

The continuing support received via email and skype made maintaining the Learning Curve easy and doable. However i do not think that the certificate issued on completion,does justice to the content and effort(9 weeks+) by the student and Trainer.”
