Christo Harmse, a South African Citizen and founder of S.A.S Solutions, has been in the security industry since 1993.

Here he was trained in all aspects of infantry warfare and leadership, including rural and industrial, and conduct of an officer.

While waiting to be posted to an infantry battalion in South Africa, to train new recruits, the South African Police Force came to this established leadership training ground and recruited himself and a lucky few, to further their careers in the SAPS.
