On 25th June 2014 the International Professional Security Association (IPSA) signed a historic agreement in Doha, Qatar with the Qatar International Centre for Safety and Security (QICSS). The agreement provides for graduates from QICSS security related courses to be automatically enrolled as individual members with IPSA for 12 months with options to extend their membership thereafter.
Commenting at the signing ceremony in Doha, Mike White, Chairman of IPSA said “This is a historic moment for IPSA. We already have many members within the region and this will allow us to be at the forefront of professional representation as the Qatari private security industry grows and develops. These are exciting times for Qatar and we are very proud to be associated with our professional colleagues at the QICSS and we look forward to working with them in the future to develop new members and help and support both the Centre and our members wherever we can”.
Speaking for QICSS, Mr Khalid Omran, Chief Executive Officer said “This is a key moment for the private security industry in Qatar and we’re looking forward to working with our IPSA partners in the years to come”.
