Counter Terrorism e-learning update

Sia offers an updated learning module

On Friday 10 September, the Security industry Authority (SIA) is launching Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) Security e-learning for security professionals.

The SIA have developed the new training in partnership with the National Counter Terrorism Security Office and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure.

ACT Security is free, specialised training for front line security operatives. The custom-built training provides up-to-date counter-terrorism knowledge to help operatives prepare for and respond to terrorist incidents whilst on duty.

The course will take around 1 hour 15 mins and its flexible delivery will allow the user to pause and save progress. This new ACT Security e-learning course follows a successful pilot in August 2021 that included security businesses and operatives.

When taken with ACT Awareness e-learning, the new training covers the entire counter-terrorism content for the licence-linked qualifications and top-up training. There are five modules that cover:

• the role of a security operative in counter terrorism

• current terrorist attack methods

• identifying and responding to suspicious activity

• incident response planning

• responding to a terrorist incident

We’d appreciate if everyone could make themselves aware of this course as we feel it is definitely worth looking into for any top up training you may require ahead of licence renewals!
