CLOSE TARGET RECONNAISSANCE

Introduction
The Close Target Reconnaissance (CTR) course is a four week course and prepares the operator to plan, prepare and conduct CTR missions in both rural and urban environments. The course is divided into two phases. Phase one prepares the operator to carry out CTR missions in a rural environment prior to moving onto the more difficult urban environments covered in phase two. This form of CTR training is based on domestic counter terrorism, but the skills taught lend themselves equally to other roles and theatres. The average course consists of eight operators, working in pairs throughout. All instructors have extensive operational experience in domestic counter terrorism and all current special operations theatres including Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan. This skills taught on this course are used primarily for the covert entry to premises with the intention of exploiting evidence/items of interest found within. In order to further enhance the skills learnt on this course, a Covert Method of Entry (CMOE) course is also available as well as bespoke, role/theatre specific courses.

COUNTER & ANTI-SURVEILLANCE

Introduction
The counter and anti-surveillance course is two weeks long and covers each aspect of these skills in detail. Practical exercises help illustrate the theoretical knowledge gained throughout the course, therefore allowing operators the ability to plan, prepare and conduct both operations effectively. The size of the course is flexible, relying on operators to work alone and in teams with the role of team commander/leader being employed by the operators throughout the course. The ability to successfully plan, prepare and execute a counter surveillance operation in addition to the knowledge gained of anti-surveillance techniques provides an excellent addition to any close protection or VIP protection role. Counter surveillance is defined as, “Surveillance conducted on behalf of an individual/s in order to detect and/or defeat any hostile surveillance acting against them”. Anti-surveillance is defined as, “Surveillance conducted by an individual/s in order to detect and avoid any hostile surveillance acting against them”. Bespoke and role/theatre specific courses are available as well as operational support as requested.

SITUATION AWARENESS

Introduction
The surveillance situation awareness (SA) course is a two week course designed to prepare the operator for common / likely situations they may be faced with when operating in a surveillance role. The course uses operational examples to highlight the probable situations faced and draws on examples of compromise from domestic counter terrorism as well as overseas operations. The size of the course is flexible, relying on operators to work alone and in teams. The goal of the course is to instil a dislocation of expectation and put the operators into a controlled situation which allows them to identify their fears and apprehensions and therefore select the best course of action without a harmful outcome. Included within this training is an evasive driving phase which is delivered at a high standard by advanced driving instructors from both military and law enforcement backgrounds. Bespoke and role/theatre specific courses are available as well as operational support as requested.
