An increase in terrorist attacks on civilians is driving demand for training for journalists and executives of corporations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
To meet this demand, Centurion Intelligence Partners, LLC (CIP) has announced the launch of its Hostile Environment Training program in South Florida. In collaboration with Altair Training Solutions, CIP offers introductory and advanced training in assessing risks and handling diverse situations in a manner that increases the chance of survival.
“CIP’s hostile environment training is run by seasoned professional operators with experience in various theatres of war and global conflict, who understand that the threats that used to seem remote and far from home are now at the doorstep of many average citizens.”
According to Reporters Without Borders, 66 journalists and 11 media assistants were killed in 2014. NGOs are reporting increased threats of kidnapping. And the terrorist attack in Paris this week has reminded everyone that the threat is not just on the battlefield.
“Recent global events prove that there is a new dynamic with respect to the threat level facing executives and staff of corporations and non-profits operating throughout the world. This new environment requires training that anticipates risk and deals with many diverse scenarios,” said Marc Roman, President of Centurion Intelligence. “CIP’s hostile environment training is run by seasoned professional operators with experience in various theatres of war and global conflict, who understand that the threats that used to seem remote and far from home are now at the doorstep of many average citizens.”
CIP instructors train individuals to identify, assess and minimize risk, as well as deal with surprise scenarios such as carjacking, active shooters and kidnapping attempts. CIP’s collaboration with Altair Training Solutions enables a unique, one-of-kind training experience that is unparalleled in any private sector facility globally. With over 1,200 acres and various settings within the facility, instructors have the ability to simulate numerous scenarios and offer customized training designed to save lives.
