Des igned by the

consists of four units of
distant learning material
addressing th e d isc ip li nes of security and
fi nishes in a face-to-face
element. On successful
completion of all components students will be
e ligible for a Diploma in
Security Ri s k M a nagement.
T he cou rse was officially launc hed by the
Assista nt Sec re ta r y Security, Mr Glanmore
• Three students of the new Diploma of Security Risk l\'lanagement course (back I-r) lS NJ'C Andrew Skow

"There are 115,000
peopl e in the Defence
organisation and about
300 full time security
people." Mr Philip said.
"Literally thousands of
classified documents are
generated by the Austra lian Defence Force
eve ry day - Defence
holds more than 70 per
cent of the classified
material in Austra lia
and carried OUI about 80
per cent of national
security clearances for
people both within and
OlliS ide the depart menl.
"The new course is
desig ned 10 bridge the
gap in knowledge of the
thousands in Defence -

Mr Ph ilip said the
new course was designed
formaximumnexibility.
"The re'snotime limit
on the course," he said.
"Students will be able to
proceed at their own
pace.
"To be sponsored on
the course, potential students will need to seek
entry thro ugh thei r
supe rvisors. In fact. I
thi nk it's more like ly
that a supervisor wi ll
see the requirement and
