Workplace safety for schools and tertiary educatorsThe public nature of education workplaces exposes employees to conflict situations with the potential to cause personal harm, property damage and loss of organisational reputation.
Students, parents, caregivers, relatives and strangers can be onsite in an agitated state and behave in unpredictable or confrontational ways. Our goal is to help you identify risk, develop mitigating policy, deliver relevant employee training, and source appropriate equipment and products.
All our training programmes are based on increasing the participants’ understanding of the causes of conflict and further developing their ability to prevent and defuse various situations.

"It was a very dynamic week and really brought our whole team together and I’m very confident that we all have a very bright and safe future together as enforcement officers."
"The focus on communication and professionalism on this course is what separates it from a lot of others I have done in the past. I believe that focus on these key areas will be very beneficial for staff who complete this training. Paul’s experience in this field is very clear and his ability to explain and teach the course content was first class."
"Just wanted to say that I thought the training was excellent and Paul Fong was one of the best instructors I have ever had for any course ever!"
"I have received CIDT training since about 1992 variously from Victoria Police and others, however overall I thought the training provided by you was the best."
