Weapons Awareness

Over recent years people have found increasingly creative ways of infiltrating threatening items on board aircraft and through other security check points. Weapons of all kinds: commercially manufactured, improvised, adapted and disguised, metallic and non-metallic as well as explosive materials and improvised explosive devices have all defeated security screening. Why? Simple - lack of weapons recognition training. The current reliance on metal detection technology and the likely delay in the mass deployment of advanced screening technologies, such as body X-ray, millimetre wave imaging and portable explosive detectors, means that it still remains the responsibility of the screeners to identify potentially threatening items. Unfortunately, no matter what sophisticated state-of-the-art detection equipment you have at your disposal; if you don't know what the weapons you're searching for look like or can be made from, you won't find them! And in today's climate, the possible consequence of not detecting disguised and concealed weapons doesn't bear thinking about. Who is the programme designed for? Skills for Security have united to offer the unique Weapons Awareness This course is aimed at staff already working in the cash and valuables in transit, security guarding, door supervision, community warden, event stewarding and associated sub sectors. It is also highly relevant to other professions such as teaching, retail management and policing. What does the programme cover? This is a one day course, which equips candidates with all of the training materials required to complete training in this area. A full weapons awareness training box is provided, with examples of concealed weapons and everyday items that can be utilised as a weapon. •Handling weapons and terminology •Edged weapons •Striking weapons •Projectile weapons •Disguised weapons
