The International Secure Minds Training Academy (iSMTA) is a descendant of Secure Minds which formed and became an Industry Qualification (IQ) Centre in November 2012. Our mission was to provide much needed specialist qualifications to those who worked overseas and in potentially hostile environments. From inception Secure Minds developed to the existing 1548 enrolled students and 44 departments spread over various qualifications and courses.

In the early part of 2014, Secure Minds started to restructure as the International Secure Minds Training Academy (iSMTA) and recognised that E-Learning was a formidable and proven means of delivering high quality training globally. We have not only restructured the course menu, but also refined the delivery methods available to cater for an individual's learning style.

With such a proven, robust Learning Management System (LMS) and the acceptance of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) we are able to provide a number of level 5 Awards which can be mixed and matched to form a personalised Diploma course that generates interest and promotes career development within business and security as a whole. The content is modern because all the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are skilled and current practitioners in their fields, and share the passion to pass on their most up-to-date knowledge via our modern delivery methods. The level 5 Awards truly focus on the professional world, providing the student with an abundance of subject matter.
