C4 has the motto “Learners for Life” and in 2011 I joined the C4 family. During this time, I was working as a Security Officer for a large Auckland security company and anyone with a Certificate of Approval was considered a Security Officer.

However, as I wanted to take my career forward, I embraced the opportunity to learn and to take away as much knowledge as I could through the coming years. I have now gone on to complete my National Certificate in Security Levels 2,3 and 4 with an ambition to one day become a trainer. The security industry knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that C4 trainers deliver to their students is second to none and I have really enjoyed being part of the C4 team.

Working in the hospitality industry, their training gave me the confidence to work in any situation where it could be calm one moment to extremely volatile the next.

I have no hesitation in referring my friends to C4. I thank Chris, Kathy and the rest of the team for their help over the years and wish C4 every success in the future
