This course is designed to increase awareness of the threat of kidnapping and therefore to reduce the chances of being abducted.
It examines the increase in kidnapping cases and the different methodologies used by kidnappers, as well as how to avoid common pitfalls.
The course is delivered by experts in this field, who also consult for the UK government and the FBI.

An essential course
This one day course uses case studies and practical exercises to highlight the threat of kidnap posed to travellers. It provides delegates with the critical awareness necessary to identify risk areas and how to minimise the kidnap threat.

The course also explores what happens during a kidnapping and the behind the scenes work that goes on during a hostage situation. It has been designed, and is delivered, by experts who have dealt with over 600 kidnaps globally. This is an essential course for anyone travelling or working overseas.
