Over three days and two night Blackjerk Security will offer participants an immersive, cost effective, risk appropriate and in depth learning experience which prepares them for the realities of living and working in hazardous, emergency or 'deep field' locations.
Course delegates are taught in three strands, which interlink throughout the course;
Human Security - as well as understanding the operating space within which they will operate, delegates are taught about the human factors that affect their safety and security. Our team help the delegates to understanding the 'drivers' to violence, their own attitudes and appetites to it and will come away able to exert influence within the context of interpersonal violence.
Hard Security - delegates will learn how to reduce their personal and team vulnerabilities to a range of threats, from Abduction to Blast Threats, from Vehicle Checkpoints to Weapon Threats, the team focus on current tactics and techniques employed by armed groups to ensure the learning is up to date and appropriate. Delegates will spend time with a former hostage who spent 15 months in captivity.
First Aid in the Field - this portion of the course is taught in terms of delivering first aid in remote locations. Delegates are taught by international search and rescue medics who will teach the fundamentals of Basic Life Support; primary and secondary survey, managing traumatic injury and sustaining life when definitive care is not immediately available. The First Aid element of the course is a core component of the training and is mainstreamed throughout, not taught in isolation.
