From 17-21 November, the ACMC hosted Dr Bagus Tjahjono, the Head of the Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management (BNPB – Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana). During the week, Dr Bagus visited numerous Australian Government agencies including the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Attorney-General’s Department – Emergency Management Australia and the Protective Security Training College (PSTC).
The PSTC, a Registered Training Organisation, is the leading national provider of protective security training to Commonwealth, state and territory government agencies, contractors and organisations dedicated to safeguarding Australia’s critical infrastructure.
PSTC Director, Rob Lee explained to Dr Bagus the Australian Governments’ Protective Security Policy Framework, including why it was developed and the necessity for collaboration among government agencies. PSTC Assistant Director, Greg Ranse who leads the training team discussed his role and the flexibility of training offered by PSTC, including face-to-face, residential and e-learning.
The visit enabled Dr Bagus to better understand the Australian Governments’ Protective Security Policy Framework and determine what areas would be beneficial to Indonesia. This was also an opportunity for the ACMC and PSTC to explore possible areas for future collaboration and knowledge sharing.
