Examples of EPE Training
Weapons Intelligence Investigator: Trains individuals to operate as part of an operational Weapons Intelligence Team (WIT) able to investigate terrorist incidents to record and analyse tactical, technical and forensic evidence to provide a detailed and timely assessment of terrorist capability. This course can be tailored to include advanced options.
Assault Team IEDD Operator: Trains IEDD operators to work as part of a tactical unit such as a SWAT team to provide them with IEDD support during the initial assault and post any incident. This allows experienced IEDD operators to work in a dynamic tactical unit during hostage rescue and deliberate assault operations. Some elements of hand entry procedures, as applied during tactical situations, are also taught during this course.
Equipment Training: We can provide training on a wide range of equipment including remotely operated vehicles, portable X-ray systems and specialist EOD/IEDD weapons systems. Our aim is to allow customers to get the very best from the equipment they currently hold.
CBRN Training: Our team has wide experience in this area and can tailor imaginative and credible training scenarios that allow customers to fully test their capability. Our courses range from basic CBRN awareness training to advanced IEDD training with technically challenging scenarios.
