Training Course On The Importance Of Situational Awareness


This 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.


By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Situational Awareness knowledge and techniques
  • 1st Responders and Situational Awareness
  • Activities and mindsets for increasing Situational Awareness
  • Using effective intuition and instinct for Situational awareness
  • Awareness and response using indicators for potential threats
  • Be proactive with Travel Safety and Security
  • Understanding and implement safe journey management practices for your employees.
