“The Power group of companies employed the services of the NHPA to train all staff in the skills of hijack prevention from October 2004 – March 2006. The course was well received by all staff and most have attended on more than one occasion. I am pleased to announce that we have not had another incident of hijacking since October 2004. I would highly recommend the NHPA to anyone wanting to avoid this traumatic experience.”

“A BIG thank you for the excellent course presented by Richard on Friday. Having been on other ‘anti-hijack’ courses I thought it would be a mere refresher – it was that and so much more!
The insight that Richard offered is simply amazing (and frightening). Certainly made us think twice but more importantly has elevated our awareness and understanding of this scourge. Our chances of not becoming yet another statistic has most surely improved. My only regret is that we did not have more time.
I have no hesitation in recommending this course to the rest of the company.”

“A very big thanks for a fantastic training session I was privileged to attend. I have learned a lot. Also a big thank you to Richard whom, in my opinion, is one of best presenters I have come across!!!!

“NHPA has been used by Renault international operations numerous times during the last three years. Their professional level as well as their highly developed pedagogical skills makes their courses stand out in a level of their own. Perfectly well organized, the training is given in a proficient and perfectly understandable way. Mr. Brussow is capable of sending out an important message about life and death in our everyday life. However, all this without using over dramatized methods or making his students feel uneasy about the matters tended.
I can with the greatest certainly recommend the services of the NHPA to any corporation or individual who is concerned about their personal security in the particular environment that South Africa is today.”

“Just wanted to thank you for a very interesting, thought-provoking, disturbing and thoroughly worthwhile course on Saturday morning.”
Mike Winfield
Motoring Editor – Pretoria News

“We have held several very informative courses for the staff of SANBS. Each and every time Richard presents an exceptional awareness of the dangers of hijacking and all staff members who have had the privilege to attend this course have commented that it has made a difference in their lives.
Richard is a brilliant presenter and his extensive knowledge of the crime situation in South Africa is mind-boggling. Since the introduction of the Hijack Prevention course into SANBS, there has been some change in the amount of crime related incidents involving staff and vehicles.
Richard’s expertise also extends as far as Advanced Driving courses, which we have experienced as well. The Human Resources Department have become aware of the invaluable importance of “Defensive Driver Evaluations” and are now starting to use this course as part of the interview process when appointing new drivers into SANBS.
The NHPA comes highly recommended.”
