Specialist Programmes

TMTA has created client-specific security, risk and crisis management training programmes to meet the needs and requirements of that organisation depending on the sector in which they operate. The following specialist programmes, including counter-terrorism and humanitarian & aid, are delivered to meet clients' needs in the UK and worldwide. These include programmes suitable for the Humanitarian and Aid sector and also includes Counter Terrorism programmes. For further details about the above or to enquire about any other specialist training programmes offered by Trident Manor Training Academy please feel free to contact us.

Security Information for the Business Traveller

Trident Manor personnel have delivered this programme to the ‘Export Academy’ of the British government’s, Department of International Trade to provide guidance and advice on information security. Our personnel have experience working for governmental and corporate organisations in over 40 countries around the world and can provide delegates with several case studies to demonstrate the importance of information security for business travellers and to reinforce that threats are real and are likely to occur depending on the circumstances. 

Emergency and Crisis Management Training

Trident Manor has worked with corporate clients to develop and create bespoke emergency and crisis management plans. The learning and development aspects have been delivered at the board level in the form of a briefing, followed by exercising through to the operational teams where simulated emergency and crisis situations exist. Allowing a workforce to understand what is expected of them during a crisis and giving them the tools to positively respond reduces the impact. The benefits of this type of corporate training became evident during the early days of the COVID-19 virus when clients were able to implement the lessons learnt to enable a proactive and timely response to the situation. This enables risks to be reduced and staff to remain safe whilst at work. This training can be delivered globally.

Security Risk Assessment Programme - CPD - 1 Day:

This is an intermediate specialist programme designed to educate the participants to identify and conduct risk and vulnerability assessments of their assets. Starting with an understanding of the different threats that exist and how they can manifest themselves, the programme provides the attendees with skills and knowledge on how to assess and prioritise risks as well as vulnerabilities. Finally, sensible and pragmatic security practices are discussed to help reduce the risks to tangible and intangible assets (e.g. properties, staff, public, reputation) through the delivery of proactive protection methods.

Protective Use of Visual Surveillance Systems (VSS) - CPD Certified - 1 Day

This programme has been delivered all over the world for multiple sectors including oil and gas, culture, and education. The content focuses on developing the skills and abilities of those who use CCTV systems to protect their organisations and assets. Both theoretical and practical-based learning are taught to fully engage delegates in their role as CCTV operators and the incidents they may be faced with.

Supervisor Development Programme - CPD - 3 days

This is a CPD-certified, operational programme designed to provide supervisors working in security with the necessary skills and knowledge to fulfil their daily tasks while meeting the highest operational standards. Sensible and pragmatic operational practices are discussed that help participants overcome daily challenges while on duty. The programme combines theory with group discussions and scenario-based exercises that learners can apply to real-life situations. All participants must successfully complete and pass the written exam on the final day of training to receive their certificate of continued professional development.

Train the Trainer (T3) Programme - CPD - 1 Day:

This is a CPD-certified, specialist-level programme designed to provide future trainers with the necessary skills and knowledge on how to deliver meaningful and engaging lessons. The training will help delegates navigate through the different learning techniques available and decide which ones to adopt based on the assessment of their student’s needs and requirements. During the programme, students will be able to demonstrate their role as a trainer during a practical assessment where they are tasked with delivering a programme to others.

Counter Terrorism Programmes

Whilst Trident Manor has provided guidance and support to multiple national and international organisations, Trident Manor Training Academy has developed appropriate counter-terrorism programmes to benefit organisations that could face this serious threat. Our senior management team has the skills, knowledge, and experience to deliver these programmes and help protect your assets in a safer and more secure environment. Our services are tailored to the individual or organisation and are based upon the existing or anticipated risks to the assets.

Entry Level - Counter Terrorism Risk Assessing

During this programme, delegates are taught how to understand the different types of terrorist threats that exist, and their attack methodology, and undertake a CT risk assessment and proactive prevention strategies rather than choosing a reactive response.

Introduction to Situational Awareness - CPD - Half Day:

This programme enables a workforce to increase its level of awareness and vigilance around terrorist acts and methodologies. The programme increases levels of alertness and enables “Proactive Prevention instead of Reactive Responses”. This programme is CPD certified and also helps improve personal security and the meeting of organisational duty of care.

Introduction to Surveillance Detection - Half Day:

This programme helps individuals and organisations potentially identify pre-attack hostile surveillance against individuals or locations, in doing so enabling proactive prevention and potential disruptive actions to be implemented. As with the situational awareness programme, this training also improves personal security and helps meet the organisational duty of care obligations.

Humanitarian and Aid Training

Trident Manor personnel have developed training and development programmes for international humanitarian and aid organisations that help reduce the risks faced by their personnel, to their operations and reputations. With operational and strategic level experience in some of the most difficult operating environments, our aim is to always meet the learning requirements of any humanitarian sector organisation we work with.

In addition to our specialist training programmes, our personnel are able to travel to any destination in order to deliver in-country programmes to meet your organisational needs. The following are some of the programmes that we offer to humanitarian organisations both in the UK and globally:

PSSW™ (Personal Safety & Security Workshop) - CPD - 1 Day:

Many locally engaged staff are exposed to greater dangers than their expatriate colleagues. The programme helps delegates identify and proactively avoid conflict instead of having to resort to conflict management where a conflict situation already exists. Organisations sending staff on this workshop can be confident they are giving staff valuable personal security skills but are also demonstrating a proactive approach to duty of care obligations. It is especially beneficial where staff are at an increased risk of violence, intimidation, or anybody who faces the prospect of conflict situations, including medical teams, lone workers, or international travellers.

Operating in Difficult Environments - 3 days

By default, most countries that require humanitarian support fall into the category of ‘difficult environments’. The programme combines presentations with practical exercises that assist and support the participant's understanding of the risks that can exist and steps that can be taken to ensure personal safety and security whilst maintaining operational effectiveness. The programme is aimed at humanitarian workers with limited exposure to international operational experience or for those who have not been overseas for a number of years. As far as possible the programme is tailored to the likely risks that will be faced by the delegates in their place of deployment.

Preventing Workplace Violence Workshop - CPD - Half Day:

Humanitarian organisations are not immune from workplace violence, which includes sexual violence, intimidation, and abuse. The impacts on individuals, teams, and overall morale can be devastating. The workshop helps delegates understand the threats that exist whether internal or external and provides sensible solutions for managing and mitigating their impact. By increasing the levels of awareness organisations can be more proactive at protecting their staff and minimising their exposure to operational disruption and reputational damage.

Specialist Security Defensive Driving Programme - NCFE - 3-5 days

This is an advanced programme where there are increased levels of security risks or hostilities. It can be delivered pre-deployment or in the country of operations by our Level 4 (RoSPA Accredited) Advanced Behavioural Driver Trainers who have experience working in the UK, Africa and the Middle East. Levels of driver competence are increased under stressful situations and advanced levels of awareness regarding in-country threats are provided. The programme also delivers scenario-based competencies that are ‘RTL’ related (Reaction to Incidents) including self-recovery, vehicle hijacking and ambush scenarios.

Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) - 5 day

This is a specialist programme that is client-specific and tailored around the specific in-country risks and activities being undertaken by the organisation. Unlike other programmes that are militaristic in their approach, the HEAT programmes delivered by Trident Manor will only provide content that is necessary to know, understand, and reduce the risks to individuals in the theatre. Feel free to ask for further details on this programme here.
