This course was developed for those working in the public or private sector with responsibility for safety or security. The course content responds to the changing risks associated with “new terrorism” threats such as attacks on the public and the economy. Current thinking now suggests that all places of public assembly and all business or leisure environments are at risk. The level of threat and the subsequent counter measures can only be determined by conducting a terrorist threat risk assessment. Course content includes the Nature of New Terrorism, Targets and Types of Attack, General Preparedness, Terror Threat Risk Assessment, Counter Measures, Critical Infrastructure Loss Impact, Staff Awareness and Travel Risks.
The course duration is scheduled for six months; however participants can complete the course and submit their final projects at any time within the six months.
