What Is Surveillance Training?

Offering the Level 4 Covert Rural Surveillance Operations Course 'Management Qualification'. Over the 7 day period students will be taught advanced methods of rural surveillance, including techniques that are used by today's Special Forces in order to collect intelligence by the infiltration of the target area, and the use of covert imagery. Green skills are often required within a urban environment, here acting as a trigger for larger operations. This is why we introduce students to urban tactics, these tactics being deployed within populated areas where isolated team drills are practised via a number of urban exercise scenarios. Many people will say that isolated positions should never be used, in the real world of surveillance these may be your only option, if this is the case learning our drills is a must! We will get you in and out with no compromise. In the past students undertaking our Level 4 Covert Rural Surveillance Operations course 'Management Qualification' come from backgrounds in military reconnaissance, where having passed their intense commanders course now wish to have a civilian recognised qualification. We have many Foreign Military personnel, Police and Government units, commercial operational managers within private investigation companies, and close protection officers also joining us to learn our in house developed commercial surveillance tactics.
