Gideon Kemboi

I joined PSTA in the year 2011, 28th February ,after being trained for a period of 2 weeks I was deployed to nation centre as a security officer. I undertook my duties for 2 years as a guard and I was later promoted to a supervisor. I was then promoted to a Area Field officer in 2015.
The skills I acquired at PSTA propelled me through the above ranks. Currently I’m the Field Operation Coordinator at Senaca East Africa.
I have been able to discharge duties of the above offices thanks to the skills I learned at PSTA.
I would recommend any person who would wish to pursue security as a career to enroll at the institution for it equips one with requisite knowledge and skills.

Mary Wamaitha Wagana

I was recruited at Private Security Training Academy in the year 2012 as a security officer. After completion of two weeks basic guarding course, I joined the level 2 course which is supervision. Upon completion I was dispatched to the field as a quality/field trainer where I served under the operational department for 2 years.
In 2014 I was called back to the academy as a full time instructor where I have served till date.
My experience at PSTA has been one of a kind, got to learn so many things and acquire different skills that have taken me very far in this life.
