Risk Control Academy is a fully regulated training institute by the National Board of Technical Education which is Nigeria’s technical and vocational regulator. In addition, RCA is approved by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to run Security Management and IT related Courses designed to upskill professional security practitioners.
The idea of the Academy came about after recognizing the increasing skills gap in the security industry in Nigeria arising from lack of regulation and standards in security training. With the mission of increasing standards in mind, the Chief Executive of Risk Control Services initiated discussions with the Nigerian Government and promoted the development of a comprehensive curriculum for quality training in the field of security and protection. Thus, our Academy was born.
To guaranty sustainable quality education, RCA has built partnerships with credible educational institutions and obtained necessary accreditations to run its programs. For Aviation Security, RCA is an AVSEC Training Provider by the National Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and a partner with EUROPOLYGRAPH to provide Polygraph Training for people who desire to pursue career in forensic psychophysiology. RCA runs some of its professional certifications in collaboration with Nigeria’s Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech). Its training management systems have been approved by Nigeria Standard Organization leading to award of ISO 9001:2019.
