ACT Awareness E-Learning
ACT Awareness e-Learning is a new counter terrorism awareness product designed for all UK based companies organisations – and now the general public.
Free to use, the course can be divided into short sections. However it takes just 45 minutes in total to complete – 45 minutes that could save lives.
The digital format is proving popular with shopping, entertainment and sports venues with more companies applying to take part every day. From 9th December 2019 the course is now open to the general public.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D’Orsi, national police lead for Protective Security, explains:
“All staff working in crowded places – not just those who have a security role – can follow the course and be in a stronger position to help protect themselves, colleagues and the public.
“Our officers will still be available to deal with companies on a one-to-one level but this will lead to many more ‘eyes and ears’ available to help us that could potentially save lives.”
If you’re a member of the general public or from a major organisation, you can sign up directly to the course here or visit the National Counter Terrorism Security Office website’s ACT Awareness page for further information.
