Over the last two decades, I have provided practical training to a diverse range of individuals, departments, and corporations. While there are training courses available that are presented in a standardized format, I prefer to tailor my approach to meet the specific needs of each group I work with. For example, a law enforcement officer may have different interests than an insurance loss adjuster or a government department when it comes to investigating crashes or crimes. Similarly, the training needs of a heavy commercial transporter will be vastly different from those of a rental company.
I understand that some individuals are able to commit to longer training programs, while others may only have a day or two available due to work constraints. Additionally, training individuals with different levels of experience and equipment requires a customized approach. For instance, an insurance assessor might benefit from training in photographic techniques and protocols that enable them to better assess the cost of repairs, while a rental company may require training on the legal aspects of merit and potential civil claims fallout.
When I design a training program, I gather information on the attendees’ prior experience, equipment, availability, and the types of vehicles under consideration before committing to dates, locations, or fees. My training courses can range from smaller, travel-involved groups to larger groups with equipment already in place.
I have provided practical training on various topics in the past, such as crash investigation, crime scene processing, vehicle examination, forensic mapping, and collision reconstruction. If you are interested in attending one of my scheduled courses or require a customized training program, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am eager to work with you and tailor a training program that meets your specific needs.
I believe that instilling a road safety culture in young children is critical, yet unfortunately not emphasized enough. If your organization or school is interested in having me deliver road safety and crash avoidance training to the road users of tomorrow, I encourage you to reach out to me.
I strongly believe that educating our future road users, law enforcement officers, pedestrians, and employees on the critical subjects of road safety, investigation, and law cannot be overstated. I thoroughly enjoy these interactions and witnessing the impact of sharing engaging stories and practical knowledge with children between the ages of 6 and 16.
I welcome opportunities to work closely with law enforcement officers at live crash scenes both in South Africa and abroad. My goal is not to jealously protect my knowledge, skills, and experience, but rather to inform, educate, and lead active officers in real scenes. If your department is interested in engaging with me at live scenes, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be delighted to find ways to share my knowledge with your officers at live scenes.
Short Group Sessions
I welcome the opportunity to participate in existing events such as conferences, seminars, and corporate training sessions, where I am engage with larger groups and share my insights and experiences with attendees. National or International Crash Conferences, Road Safety Conferences, Seminars, and Corporate Group Events are good examples.
If you are interested in having me contribute as presenters, keynote speakers, or panelists, please provide me with the dates and locations of your events, and the topics or themes you would like me to address. I am always eager to share my knowledge and expertise, and to help inform, educate, and empower those in attendance.
I frequently schedule in-house training events, often on a quarterly or even more frequent basis. These events are carefully curated, featuring pre-populated syllabi, coverage of both general and advanced topics, and often include wrecks or vehicles, field visits, and practical training opportunities to further enhance the learning experience.
My past in-house training events have been met with resounding success, attracting a diverse range of students and featuring exciting elements such as lamp analysis, vehicle examinations, and practical scene measurement. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to be informed of upcoming internal training events, which are open to all interested parties.
I understand that some of my Corporate Clients may prefer to receive training in their own environment, at their own premises, with only their staff in attendance. This allows for a more personalized approach to training, as actual internal cases can be referred to as part of the training package.
If you would like me to train your staff internally, using your vehicle types, protocols, systems, experiences, and protocols as a foundation for training, I would be more than happy to accommodate your needs. Please contact me with details on how many people you would like trained, how many days you can commit to training, and where you would like the training to be presented. I will work with you to create a tailored training program that meets your specific requirements and objectives.
Hijacking Avoidance Training
As a provider of corporate services, I acknowledge that hijacking is a significant concern for many of my clients, particularly those who operate heavy commercial vehicles or fleets. In response to this, I am frequently requested to conduct presentations aimed at empowering drivers with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively navigate such risks. It is important to note that my training does not entail any security or tactical instruction, as I do not endorse physical resistance. Instead, I focus on avoidance strategies, which most drivers are not adequately trained for. The training typically lasts no longer than two hours and I would be pleased to offer my expertise to interested parties. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
I have had the privilege of providing my training services in several locations including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, and the Middle East. My reputation has also attracted students from various countries such as Namibia, Botswana, the USA, and the National Crime Laboratory of Malaysia.
I invite those interested in attending my in-house training courses or those seeking customized training services to contact me. Please provide details such as your preferred timeframe, the number of individuals requiring training, the duration of the training, and specific topics of interest. I am committed to sharing my knowledge, expertise, and experience with my partners and look forward to hearing from you.
Government Department Training
I have had the privilege of providing my training services to a significant number of South African Government Departments, Government Garage Employees, and their Internal Loss and Risk Managers. Despite the large fleets operated by these Departments, investigations for claims management or third-party liabilities are often not handled optimally due to inadequate training and resources.
If you would like to enhance the skills of your department or division, I invite you to contact me with the number of individuals requiring training, the duration of training, and preferred location. Upon receipt of your message, I would be pleased to provide a customized syllabus and estimate. My goal is to equip your team with the knowledge and skills necessary to address these challenges effectively.
Law Enforcement Training
As Law Enforcement Officers operate under a prosecution mandate, their approach to crash and crime investigations, internal policies, procedures, and departmental commitments vary accordingly. If you are interested in providing your officers with practical training in this field, I would be pleased to assist.
Please contact me and provide details such as the desired location and timeframe for the training and the number of officers requiring training. I will work with you to develop a customized training program that meets the specific needs of your department. I am committed to providing training that will enhance the knowledge, skills, and expertise of your officers, and ultimately improve the quality of their investigations.
As the world embraces virtual meetings, seminars, conferences, and events, it is only natural that Webinar Training becomes a logical progression. I am committed to innovation and responsive to market needs, which is why I have recognized Virtual Training as a future-proof mechanism for empowerment.
Although Virtual Training cannot fully replicate Practical Training, I understand and acknowledge its benefits and cost advantages in certain contexts. If you are interested in participating in one of my future webinars or would like to arrange a dedicated training webinar for your company, organization, group, or team, please do not hesitate to contact me to schedule. I am dedicated to providing high-quality training that leverages the power of technology to meet your unique needs.
Custom Video Training
In today’s corporate landscape, cost-awareness has become a top priority, particularly in the aftermath of COVID lockdowns. As new staff members join the workforce, the need for training remains ever-present, but the costs and loss of manpower associated with in-person training sessions are driving organizations towards custom video training solutions.
If you require country-wide training for your operational staff or new recruits, but cannot commit to in-person training for any reason, I offer a custom video training solution to meet your needs. I am dedicated to developing high-quality video training content that is tailored to your unique needs and requirements. I would be delighted to work with you to create a customized training program that is efficient, cost-effective, and easily accessible to all of your employees. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss this option further.
