This training is structured around 3 modules of three successive days. The three modules take place in Bern, Zürich and Geneva respectively.

    After 6 years of existence and recurring successes (54 graduates), the continuous education program in strategic management of safety and security in enterprises (CAS GSSSE) offered by the HEIG-VD engineering school and the Savatan Regional Police Academy, has been substantially resized and expanded to take into account the emerging developments in most security chapters and issues. For the program’s scientific council, it was also a question of responding to the needs of public/private companies and to the comments expressed by the students who have already graduated.

    This program therefore evolves as from summer 2021 into a program made up of two comprehensive and complementary Certificates of Advances Studies:

    • CAS 1: Certificate of Advanced Studies HES-SO in security / safety in enterprises: towards a forward-looking strategy.
    • CAS 2: Certificate of Advanced Studies HES-SO in business resilience and crisis management

    Subject to the successful completion of these two certificates (2 x 15 ECTS) and the writing of a final dissertation (6ECTS), students can obtain a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in safety-security strategy and crisis management.

    This continuous education program, made up of 10 independent modules and the final thesis, is spread over 18 months to obtain the DAS.

    This program is currently offered in French.

    All the relevant information is grouped together in the brochure that you will find on the left side.
