During this 10-day surveillance course students will learn numerous techniques to detect, track, and defeat surveillance through trade-craft and top of the line electronic detection devices. Detecting surveillance is the front-line defense in protecting diplomats, government officials, Corporate CEOs and other high value principals. Protection specialists rarely receive complete, realistic training in these topics and the skills learned will add value to any security detail, corporate or government. Picking up where we left off in the HTP module surveillance detection leaves off, students will now complete dedicated surveillance missions, build threat boards to track suspected surveillance, while simultaneously learning electronic countermeasures, GPS detection, bug sweeps, and phone line analysis utilizing top-of-the-line TSCM equipment at your client’s lavish estates in the area. Instructors come from Government and military backgrounds with extensive experience in surveillance & counter surveillance.
