Overview

Humber’s Protection, Security and Investigation diploma program gives you the skills needed to attract employers’ attention in the growing public safety and private security fields.

You will learn from industry experts using the latest technology-based methods in investigations, crime and intelligence analysis, security systems, and conflict resolution.

Small classes enhance courses designed to meet current needs and integrate theory with practical learning experiences.
