ITA Group Launches New Commercial Counter-Terror Training Academy

The ITA Group has formed a unique training academy for commercial organisations (airlines, security firms, retailers, local government authorities, banks etc) to be able to learn how to protect their personnel, their assets and their business continuity. This is the first time this has been done and ITA backs the courses with City and Guilds qualifications to support the employer's duty of care.

ITA, the UK-based security group is launching the International Training Academy, a new City and Guilds centre designed to provide a range of specialist training to help organisations manage the threats from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), dirty bombs, chemical weapons and biological attacks (CBRN).

?The recent chlorine weapon attacks in Iraq highlight the sort of problem that now faces us in every country. There is a general assumption that the police and the emergency services are totally geared up to deal with this type of attack but it is not always the case that they have the resources to be able to do so? says Mark Ayres, ITA?s CEO. ?Instructors from the International Training Academy work with commercial and public sector organisations globally to teach them how to reduce their vulnerability to terrorist attacks and to develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) in case the worst happens.?

The Academy?s instructors each draw their knowledge from over 20 years serving in the British Military as Search and Bomb Disposal specialists and the Academy?s courses have been designed specifically to enable civilian personnel to be able to gain specialist knowledge in an environment which encourages the development of practical skills as well as theoretical learning.

Mark Ayres says, ?ITA's training provides the specialist knowledge required by all grades of personnel from First Responders dealing with a CBRN incident, through to front line bomb disposal operators neutralising terrorist IEDs and we can provide this training in any country.?
