  2. Scott Linn

    Craig and his team at Paragon are nothing short of excellence.Instructor Neil is professional knowledgeable and committed to your success in your new line of work.A big thankyou to the ladies in admin for your courtesy and support!
    I was recommended Paragon by someone and I’m glad they did! I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get their security/crowd control license.

  3. Katrina Mackellar

    Today I had my first violent encounter against a drug addict. He tried to attack me but I did exactly what you taught me in that drill- use the space and barricades. He was unable to hit me and neither of us were injured. Even with all my martial arts training there was no way I could have taken him on, so I just wanted to say thanks. – K. Robinson

    Paragon training are fully invested in the success of their students. Neil genuinely cares about his students and gives 110% support to ensure you are confident and ready for testing. I had not done any study for a long time and was nervous about testing but I flew through SAIWA and am so glad I trained at Paragon. Highly recommended.

  10. Angelo Iaria

    I did my cert 2 in Security Operations and after 2 weeks I left with a high amount of knowledge that when I sat my SAIWA test I passed with flying colours. Neil giving his wealth of knowledge and his experiences of life in and within the Security Sector to us all to use and to succeed. Richard with his wealth of knowledge in Self-Defense was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks again everyone at Paragon Corporate Training for teaching me everything I needed to know and 2 weeks went so quickly and it was fun indeed….

  16. T. Flanagan

    I came to Paragon to do a Certificate 2 Security course on the recommendation of my sister (she had previously done the same course). I assumed she was exaggerating about how good the course was. I completed my SAIWA exam on the first attempt.
    I was very satisfied and can absolutely recommend Paragon for anyone that’s interested in pursuing a career in the security industry.

  18. John Corbett

    Having completed Certs 11 & 111 at Paragon Training, I recommend them without hesitation.
    At my age it was daunting to study in a class environment, but the instructors make you feel at ease and offer encouragement.
    The instructors (Craig & Neil), both former Police Officers, have a wealth of knowledge to impart.

    A satisfied customer.
