Actions Counter Terrorism Awareness Elearning
In the next stage of the development of Project Griffin, NaCTSO has launched a new online elearning product for all UK based companies and organisations. This will replace the current industry self-delivery programme. The aim of ACT Awareness ELearning is to provide nationally accredited corporate CT guidance to help industry better understand and mitigate against the current terrorist methodology.
This new approach recognises that businesses require an agile, measurable, low cost deployment, in bitesize chunks in a securely hosted environment to support the priorities to protect their people, brand and property.
It consists of six primary modules designed to teach staff about the threat to the public from terrorism and how to mitigate it, such as spotting the signs of suspicious behaviour and reacting to a firearms or weapons attack.
The course, which is fully interactive, can be taken at times to suit business needs and will give all those who complete the sections a nationally accredited certificate.
The course modules are:
- Introduction to terrorism
- Identifying security vulnerabilities
- Identifying and responding to suspicious behaviour
- Identifying and responding to a suspicious item
- What to do in event of a bomb threat
- Responding to a firearms or weapons attack.
The Beta version has been trialled by 7,000 Marks and Spencer employees and around 14,000 from other companies working in the retail sector with very good feedback.
