Terrorism Awareness

Knowledge Dispels Fear

2016 Course Dates

This course is only available for group and corporate bookings. Please contact us with your requirements.

About the course

We live in a dynamic world that has seen the proliferation of criminal and terrorist activity outside of their traditional global geographies.

All of us have a part to play in combating the threat and effects of terrorism, especially those of us who live, commute and work in our metropolitan areas.

This is a terrorism/mass casualty awareness course that not only gives attendees the information required to make life saving choices during an attack, but also the ability to recognise hostile acts whilst still in the planning or surveillance phase.

Based on the philosophy that knowledge dispels fear this course can be delivered at the clients location to large groups, making it a cost effective and non-disruptive training experience.

The course itself can be tailored to suit individual clients and their particular requirements but the suggested subjects and topics are shown below
