I am writing this letter to recommend the services of NHPA to you. During the past 10 years our company has been working with NHPA on numerous different kinds of projects, including Hijack Awareness, Advance Driver training. The company offers high quality services. We can confirm that we have always been satisfied by their work. One of the projects that we worked on pointed out the concern for quality and attention to detail that the company has. In our opinion it has been the industry knowledge and the creativity of the NHPA that resulted in such impressive results. I would like to ask you to consider the NHPA for the needs of your company, and strongly recommend their services.

To date we as the ESKOM Group Capital Division have enjoyed a good and reliable service from the NHPA. All training requirements were appropriately and satisfactorily met. I have personally found the team to be very friendly and accommodating in terms of training requests and always showing a willingness to meet and even exceed the customer’s requirements. The team adds value to our safety training programme. Thank you for excellent service.

This serves to confirm that we have been making use of the services of NHPA for both driver assessments and anti-hijack training over the last 10+ years. I have found the company to be very reliable and professional. In addition, the quality of the services rendered often exceeds expectations. During the anti-hijack session, the potentially life-saving information is shared in such a way that it is not only enjoyable, but remembered and practiced immediately afterwards.

I write to express my sincere gratitude for the services delivered to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) East and Southern Africa Regional Office. Thank you for the time afforded to come and address us. The UNFPA Regional Office is planning to have further presentations in the future and would on that occasion draw on the expertise of the National Hijack Prevention Academy.
