Site Protection through Observational Techniques, Customized (AWR-219-C)

 

Emergency responders, security professionals, security support staff, and the public must work together to identify suspicious objects, substances, and people. This course trains public safety personnel to improve their observational techniques by using a four-step ongoing screening process that includes increasing protective awareness, identifying preoperational behaviors, evaluating, and taking action. Participants will use fictional scenarios to examine each step of the process.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to better recognize, communicate, and act upon suspicious behaviors that could indicate a terrorist attack. 

This customized version of the course stays at a much higher level and does not go into as much detail as the 7-hour version of the course.
