After the successful launch of the Institute of Venue Safety and Security (IVSS), the Venue Management Association (VMA) has brought the training programme back for its second year.

The IVSS is a major training institution in the Asia and Pacific region for safety, security, and risk for the venues and events industry.

IVSS will now offer a two-year programme comprised of two residential programmes that last for one week each, daily independent discussion groups, venue application projects, and quarterly town hall events.

“After the success of last year’s IVSS we’ve expanded the suite of topics, across a range of domains relevant to venue managers and risk professionals,” said IVSS chair Wayne Middleton.

“These include security, risk management, health and safety, crowd science, life safety and compliance, emergency management, training and development, leadership and influence, and severe weather.

“By expanding the program across two years we are confident that students of IVSS will graduate with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to face the evolving risks and threats that venues face now and into the future. On behalf of the VMA Board, the IVSS Committee is excited to deliver this year’s program.”

The IVSS is aiming to provide leadership, knowledge, and training in order to keep venues safe and secure.

Furthermore, the institution is seeking to teach people how to understand and manage the range of threats that can impact the successful hosting of events.

The programme is accepting enrolments for this year’s IVSS at the Accor Stadium in the Sydney Olympic Park from August 25 to 30.
