What does the training involve?
We provide detailed information on how individuals should behave in order to withstand the kidnap ordeal from a physical and psychological perspective.
How often do I need to do this training?
Generally we advise a refresher after 18 months. But we also advise the use of discretion here, so if you are going to a region completely different from those you normally visit, a new brief or update may be beneficial.
What is the background of DHSC’s consultants?
All DHSC consultants who deliver this training to our clients are ex military and have a minimum of 5 years experience from the only UK Government/Ministry of Defence accredited organisation sanctioned to deliver this.
How does DHSC differ from other organisations that provide kidnap avoidance training?
Whilst DHSC provides kidnap avoidance training, we also provide detailed information on how individuals should behave in order to withstand the kidnap ordeal from a physical and psychological perspective, in the event that an individual is unfortunate enough to be taken hostage.
How long does the training take?
The minimum amount of time we recommend for our Hostage Awareness briefing is 2 hours.
What certification/ accreditation do I get from your course?
We work closely with insurers to ensure our training is compatible with most insurance K&R policies. Please check with your insurance provider for your requirements, as we do tailor our packages to your requirements.
Where does the training take place?
The briefing we deliver is usually carried out at our client’s premises or another suitable location.
