“My name is Abdul Ugbede, a physicist by studies and a safety and security professional by training. I have 4 years experience in safety and security management and administration and have been a member of many security and safety platforms. I am currently working in Safety and Security with an INGO in Nigeria. Over the years, I’ve had extensive training and gained the ability to pay close attention to details. My recent experiences with the Covid-19 pandemic revolved around the management of risk in our organization, which resulted in none of our staff getting infected. I also strongly encouraged the implementation of a business continuity plan for my organization. This greatly contributed to staff becoming acquainted with working from home so as to enforce the government work-from-home order.”
What was your first course on Alison, and why did you choose it?
My first course on Alison, after seeing an advert for free courses pop up on my email, was Understanding Supply Chain Risk Management. In a world of uncertainties, I sought more knowledge in the area of Supply Chain Risk Management which could help in reducing vulnerability by the identification and management of any form of risk and its associated factors.
How have Alison courses affected your career?
Alison courses have greatly broadened my knowledge and expanded my skills in safety and security management. The courses meet the necessary needs of the job and also highlight global best practices.
What’s your favourite way to relax from studying?
I don’t really have any favourite way to relax from studying. To relax my brain when I’m getting exhausted from study, I take a nap so my brain can be calmed and assimilate the knowledge already gained.
Where are you working now, and what’s next for you in terms of education?
I am currently working with an INGO in Nigeria and currently studying a Criminology and Security Studies master’s degree. I’ve also just concluded a Master’s of Education in Science Education Studies in Nigeria.
If you could learn absolutely anything in the world from an Alison course, what would it be?
I would love to further my studies in science education, criminology and security studies, as well as safety management and administration.
What would you say to someone if they asked you about Alison? Would you recommend it and why?
I rate Alison as one of the best platforms for low income earners to learn and earn certification with ease. I would recommend Alison over and over to anyone interested in online studies.
