NEW terrorism awareness training available to BVRLA members
Release Date: 

The BVRLA has been accredited by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to deliver a series of one day Counter Terrorism awareness workshops to BVRLA members.

The workshop, which has been designed by NaCTSO to equip businesses with information and guidance on how to tackle terrorist threats, will be delivered by Graham Head, a former senior Police Officer from the Metropolitan and Surrey Police Forces.

The purpose of the workshop is to raise awareness across industry and to help businesses to provide guidance to staff on what to do if they find themselves involved in a terrorist incident, or witness preparations for a suspected terrorist attack.

Several different topics will be covered including ‘examining current threat levels’, ‘identifying and responding to suspicious behaviour’, ‘suspect packages’, ‘bomb threats’, ‘firearms and weapons attacks protocols’, and ‘documentation of an event’.

The one-day workshop, called Project Griffin – Industry Familiarisation Workshop, will take place at the BVRLA offices in Amersham on the following dates:

15 March, 24 April and 2 May (9.30am - 5.30pm)

The training is being delivered free of charge to BVRLA members. A £20 administration fee will apply inclusive of VAT.

A full buffet lunch and refreshments is included on the day.
