Why Choose this Training Course?

This COPEX Situational Awareness Training workshop has been developed because of the increase of terrorist and criminal activities across continents. As individuals and businesses , on a personal level there has never been a more demanding need to become situationally aware whilst at work or travelling at home or abroad.

The importance of situational awareness  cannot be dismissed — being aware of one’s surroundings and identifying potential threats and dangerous situations  is more of a required mindset than a physical skill set only practiced by military or law enforcement agencies.  As well as providing the delegate with proven, pragmatic knowledge that will help ensure the learner is more likely to survive a kidnapping or active shooter incident, this course will also cover Travel Safety and Journey Management. 

Regardless of your safety and security experience, this course will help you become more aware of risks in an Active Shooter incident and what you can do to protect yourself and your organization from them. 

This training course will feature:

  • Understanding what Situational Awareness can do for you
  • Techniques to avoid becoming a “Victim “
  • Avoiding Kidnap & Ransom scenarios
  • Identifying and protecting yourself against an Active Shooter
  • Travel safety and journey management principles
