Justin Edwards lives in a small town in West Wales with his wife and two children. Justin joined the Armed forces in 1993 where he served with the Royal Regiment of Wales for 9 exciting and varied years with Royal Regiment of Wales, which included a number of postings including; Northern Ireland on Operation BANNER, London on public duties and Germany in an armoured infantry role before being posted to the Infantry Training Centre Catterick as a Physical Training Instructor training adult recruits. During Justin’s Military career, he was fortunate to have gained a broad range of experience in roles such as foot soldiering, peacekeeping, covert surveillance, reconnaissance and armoured infantry. Justin is also a keen sportsman and was fortunate enough to not only represent Royal Regiment of Wales but represented the Army and Combined Services teams at under 21 level.
In 2003, Justin became a serving Police Officer within Dyfed Powys Police where he worked within a number of specialist departments such as Roads Policing and Armed Response, policing the whole of South Wales.
Justin then made a career change into the Private Security industry and worked for a number of years as a Close Protection Officer and Operations Manager on a number of private and government contracts in hostile environments.
In 2015, Justin joined MPCT as an instructor at Bridgend College. In 2016, Justin was promoted and given the opportunity of becoming the Centre Manager of Swansea MPCT. This position allowed him the opportunity to develop his leadership skills and a display a passion of ensuring each and every learner had a clear pathway from being part of the college. Justin tirelessly searched for outside partnerships with the same vison and ethos as MPCT that could provide direction and support. In 2018, Justin was once again promoted to Regional Operations Manager of Wales - this position enables him to search out new partnerships and agencies that may or may not be aware of the college and the Learners that we teach.
Justin is a keen cyclist and is currently training to take part in this year’s Ironman Wales which consists of a 2.4 mile swim (3.9km), 112 mile cycle (180km) and a 26.2 mile (42.2km) run.

"As Centre Manager at the college I enjoy keeping the students as active as possible by getting them involved in energisers and for them to work in a team so it helps them bond with each other. Also it is very rewarding to see students leave the college with a progression into the military knowing that I have used my own experiences to help them better their lives at an early stage of their career."Christian Davies
Attended MPCT Cardiff in 2005. Joined the RAF Regiment in 2013, served 6 years with the regiment. Tours of Afghanistan (Herrick 20) and Iraq (Shader), STTT in Africa. Competed for the RAF in the combat shooting team against other nations in the US and UK. Left the RAF Regiment in 2019 to pursue a career within the fitness industry.
I joined the Army in 2009 and became a part of PWRR D coy, I then underwent Royal Marines training in 2018.
I decided to leave the armed forces and pursue a career within the fitness industry. I successfully passed my level 3 in personal training and pursued a life as a self-employed trainer before being greeted with a role within MPCT.
I enjoy being outdoors and spend as much of my spare time trying new things and staying active. With a combination of both Military, teaching and fitness, I knew this was the career path for me.
