Situational Awareness Program

 

Our world continues to evolve and security experts tell us that violent attacks will continue to occur. Our families, business, travel and every other sector is affected by this process. Along with the positive such as prosperity, there is also a continued evolution by those who wish to do us harm.​ Security programs are modified to meet the challenges that lie ahead, however, it is the goal of this program to ensure the practitioner is able to adapt.

Arcuri Group's Situational Awareness Specialist® (SAS) certificate program is designed to educate the participant in the discipline of situation awareness, thereby creating a security awareness practitioner capable of understanding the dynamics of random and potential threat events. It trains the individual to recognize leading indicators in people and the environment, and avoid or mitigate them proactively, before it turns into a high risk, dangerous or physical situation. This includes turning on our heightened awareness, actively perceiving the situation and looking for indicators, planning ahead, and responding and mitigating if necessary. 

This course is delivered in a scenario-based immersion learning style for comprehension and retention. Tip of Spear is proud to be the exclusive provider of Arcuri Group's SAS in-person training program in Alberta, Canada.
