Atlas Solutions today announces its opening as the first UK accredited security academy in Malaysia, opening up opportunities for deserving Malaysians to benefit from high quality instruction in Security, Health & Safety, and First Aid from trainers sourced from the British Armed Forces at an affordable rate.

“The UK method of teaching as well as its qualification is seen as the Gold Standard by international companies operating out of Western Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” said Bob Betts, Chairman, Training Section of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), and the Managing Director of the Elite Academy of Security Training. “We will support Atlas in their journey to become a Centre of Excellence in Southeast Asia for Security as well as Health and Safety Qualifications”.

Over the next few months, Atlas aims to acquire UK accreditation to conduct additional Maritime Security, Health and Safety, as well as First Aid qualifications to expand its market toward the Oil and Gas and construction industry. In doing so, Atlas combines world-class standards of British education with Malaysian local knowledge, so businesses can have the best out of both worlds.

“With support from AOFA Qualifications as well as the Security Training Authority and other UK awarding bodies, we look toward ensuring that the best out of British security education is now available to Malaysians”, said Datuk Mohammad Kamal Yan Yahaya, Chairman of Atlas Solutions. “Thank you to the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce, the British High Commission and our partners in the British Security Industry Association who have provided infinite counsel in our journey. We are proud to be contributors to the UK’s Education is GREAT campaign.”
