CPD accredited CIED awareness training

CPD accredited counter-improvised explosive device safety awareness training for public facing organisations from the leaders in explosive threat mitigation, SafeLane Global.

According to MI5, the terrorism threat level in the UK is substantial, meaning an attack is likely.  The threat in Northern Ireland from Northern Ireland-related terrorism is severe, meaning an attack is highly likely.

An attack is likely – are you prepared?

  • Is yours is a public facing organisation – from emergency first responders to private security companies, from large venue staff to hospitality and event hosts?
  • Do your staff understand the terrorist threat, the likely methods of attack and the actions they should take in the event of a suspicious find?
  • Are you a responsible employer, committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of your staff and those interacting with your company?

If so, then, SafeLane’s continuing professional development accredited counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) safety awareness training courses are the right choice for you.

Improvised explosive device disposal (IEDD) and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) experts have created this industry leading C-IED training programme. 

It’s ideal for all public facing organisations.  With the threat levels as they stand, having a contingency plan in place is essential for the safety of your staff and the wider community.

What does the CPD accredited counter-IED safety awareness training cover?

This two-part course covers:

  • Methods of attack,
  • Terrorist intent,
  • Types of improvised explosive device,
  • Categories of a find,
  • Actions on a find, main principles,

How is training delivered?

The multimedia training courses are interactive and designed to engage your staff.

Trainers bring inert items of explosive ordnance, encourage questions and are often praised for making their courses enlightening and engaging.

Training reviews – how the training has benefited SafeLane’s clients:

SafeLane Global has undoubtedly given us a greater understanding into the complex world of IEDs.  The training we received has enabled us to have a higher awareness at operational incidents.  This presentation and training is a must for all fire and rescue services and 999 responders.  The level of training and vast knowledge from [the trainer] was second to none, perfect for operational responders!  We cannot thank SafeLane enough.  Your training has made our jobs safer!”  Redbridge Fire Station, Southampton.

Courses are tailored to the needs of our clients.  This means consideration is given to the location you’re working in, and the likely threats your staff and members of the public could encounter.

“Early feedback is very positive.  You set the tone very well and the material was perfect in providing an understating of the threat, the history of how it developed and what we could expect to find in these project areas and how to respond.  You also increased the awareness of how real these incidents and finds are in this area.  We will now work on increasing the awareness and ensure appropriate actions and briefings are put in place.”  Regional Security & Crisis Manager, Europe & CIS (energy sector client, Russia).

Accredited by the CPD Certification Service:

As the courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service, all attendees receive attendance and completion certification and accrue structured CPD /active learning hours towards their own annual continuing professional development targets.

This training should be rolled out to all Fire & Rescue services.  Although online theory training provides flexibility, there are some limitations.  Face to face training was really beneficial as we were able to ask questions, understand the rationale behind policies and procedures, and feed back so the training can be further improved.  Hands on training makes us less likely to make the wrong choices when faced with UXO or an IED.  For emergency first responders, the world is ever changing, our training needs to reflect a wide range of scenarios.” Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
