Private security personnel are often the first line of defense against the very real threat of terrorism and supply chain sabotage. Currently, USA provides three advanced anti-terrorism training programs that include the following topics:
The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) course is designed to train security officers per the standards set forth by the Department of Homeland Security. This training focuses on the security aspects vital for shipping/receiving facilities, distribution centers and/or any sites dealing with transportation of goods. C-TPAT is a joint voluntary government–business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen the overall supply chain and border security.
Effective June 2009, all active security officers are required to successfully pass our Anti-Terrorism Training program. What makes this initiative significant is this training is mandatory for ALL active security officers — regardless of their hire date — making us the first security provider to train its entire security force in Anti-Terrorism.
This program trains officers to recognize and identify the types of terrorist and terrorist organizations, become familiar with the methods which terrorists may attack, and learn techniques/responses to bombs, bomb threats, chemical and biological threats.
This unit also covers important aspects of the Department of Homeland Security terrorist threat levels and vital counter measures for crime and terrorism.
