Past NECUSA PDs
NECUSA’s November 18, 2017 Professional Development
On Friday November 18, 2016 NECUSA sponsered a Professional development day at Princeton Theological Seminary. Twenty two security professionals attended a session on Verbal Defense and Influence and Site Protection through Observational Techniques.
The fist session presented by Joe Potterton, a security professional with 20 years of experience in Healthcare Security training, discussed Verbal Defense & Influence which gives people the tools and skills to improve their interpersonal skills, self-confidence in dealing with others, effectiveness in responding to others and the ability to maintain mental and emotional safety even in crisis situations.
Our second session on Site Protection through Observational Techniques was presented by Christopher T. Lloyd, Director of the Office of Safety & Security at Cairn University, , and has been a campus security professional for 23 years.This four-hour course, provides participants an overview of threat and vulnerability analyses and how these can be used to establish effective defenses. Participants are also provided with an overview of security operations that can be applied for prevention and detection of potential terrorist acts and results in sucessful participants recieving and awareness level certification from the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training.
The endevor raised $800.00 for NECUSA’s Alan Reynolds Self Reliance Award which provides financial assistance for educational expenses, other than tuition, to students who are children, stepchildren or grandchildren of NECUSA members.
