Tactical AWARENESS - Response to Threat Cues

Tactical Awareness is an extremely important, yet often neglected subject in the private security field: the recognition and response to “threat cues” – subtle signs of human aggression.  While this is a commonly addressed topic in policing, most training programs in the private security field do not go into much detail in this subject matter; this is the reason the Tactical Awareness Training Toronto course was created and implemented.

For private security personnel and law enforcement officers, personal safety is the highest priority.  The Tactical Awareness course teaches you both how to recognize threat cues that are often missed by the untrained eye, and tactics available to respond to these threat cues while maintaining personal safety.  This course is available only to Condor Security staff and public law enforcement personnel.

Why Is Important To Learn Tactical Awareness?

Tactical awareness entails improving and sharpening your perception and sensitivity of elements and components in your immediate surroundings. Additionally, tactical or situational awareness implies comprehending the connotations and undertones of such environmental aspects and how these ecological constituents could bring about abrupt changes. When you’re suddenly face-to-face with a life-endangering situation, you feel more confident if you’re armed or carrying a weapon.

But when it comes to dealing with a potentially hostile and life-threatening scenario would have the same confidence level if you were unarmed? And this is exactly where Condor Security’s situational awareness course comes to your aid. Our tactical awareness course teaches you how to effectively deal with circumstances that not only put your life at risk but also those around you.

Situational Awareness Program

Condor’s situational awareness program lays stress on how you can put yourself out of harm’s way and protect yourself, especially if you’re unarmed when facing a hazardous situation. The military has a definite term for describing and classifying such situations-situational awareness. Most of us take some time (about 5-7 seconds) before we can make out that a disaster or catastrophe is about to unfold, and respond accordingly.

And that timeframe is more than adequate for terrorists, fanatics, radicals, and antisocial elements to unleash terror by drumming up the surprise element. These disruptive elements know only too well that it’ll be too late by the time the general public reacts and respond to the mayhem. For such antisocial and fanatics, those few seconds are enough to catch their target unawares and call the shots for making unethical and disreputable demands.

And if you’re not prepared to deal with such an emergency or crisis then you’re practically done for. On the other hand, if you’re prepared to confront such a situation and have the capability to take the situation in your stride, then you’ll not only save yourself but also those around you. The better your level of realization or awareness, the more quickly will you be able to respond.
