Corporate Training

Our Corporate Security & Risk Management training can be delivered as discreet modules, within an isolated package and in support of identified programme or project requirements.  Training activity is delivered in accordance with current international, industry and operational best practice, by instructors with experience and expertise across a range of commercial sectors.  Through partners, training that is internationally accredited can also be provided.

With diverse backgrounds in finance, law, academia, politics, law enforcement, military and special forces, Rhodius can draw upon individuals and teams of proven experts to deliver relevant, realistic and dynamic training – both on or off site.

As an integral element of our Resilient Safety & Security (RS3) concept, Rhodius has identified the following as core training activity areas:

Security Manager Training:  Training can be delivered to Security Managers working within Hostile and non-hostile environments, and as part of refresher or pre-deployment work packages.

Leadership Training: Enhancing the Leader’s capabilities to lead in the context of Crisis and Risk Management – Leaders making a difference.

Risk Management Training (process to application): We provide bespoke training that focuses on each individual client’s business sector and operating environment.  Through theory and practical scenario-based training we equip individuals and teams to successfully apply process that accelerates success and mitigates against common and unexpected hazards.

Crisis & Emergency Management Training:  We cover management support structures, planning, management and tools to support strong recovery – an area often overlooked when fixed in a real situation.  We explore systems and controls that guide effective management, and reinforce critical skills and attributes of resilient leaders.

Hostile Environment Training:  Training is designed to provide client personnel with an opportunity to:

    • Enhance country knowledge
    • Understand, assess and mitigate threats and risks found amongst a range of familiar and unfamiliar scenarios – become aware of their unique vulnerabilities as individuals and corporate representatives
    • Raise awareness of recovery mechanisms to employ in the build up to, during and after an incident.

Security Awareness Training:  Delivered as part of routine security training within an office context, or to individuals deploying to areas of elevated or high risk, this course is tailored to the sector and operating environment in question and offers guidance that is both practical and easy to follow.  Set within an “All Hazards” context, we consider threats, vulnerabilities and risks within the Human, Physical, ICT and Technical domain.

Guard Force & Supervisor Training:  Typically offered as part of a broader development programme, this training includes practical instruction to raise standards and performance, as well as the use and care of equipment and systems.  We also cover legal, ethical and cultural issues.  We aim to validate and enhance security policies, plans and procedures through demanding, scenario-based training and introduce induction, continuation and specialist instruction into robust, resourced and well-managed course programmes.

Driver Training:  Risks faced while driving are, in many organisations and environments, far greater than acts of terrorism, crime or natural disaster.  Our driving courses can be applied to those employed as drivers, as well as staff and family members who may be exposed to increased risks in places with poor driving standards and/or safety regulations.  Courses cover road craft, defensive and offensive driving, as well as off-road (4WD), maintenance and recovery.

Anti-Piracy Training: to ship owners and operators, as well as to individuals transiting through high-risk areas.  As well as offering industry standard courses such as CSO, SSO, PFSO and others, we can also offer bespoke anti-piracy courses.  Elements of this course include:

  • The ISPS Code and legal considerations
  • Psychological Preparation and Survival as a Hostage
  • Ship Defence methods and considerations
  • Identify and define threats and vulnerabilities
  • Risk analysis (vessel and route)
  • Preparation of defensive measures on a super structure
  • Preparing the deck
  • Incident response and recovery
  • Escalation of force and Rules of Engagement
  • Simulated Pirate attack exercises

All training is a blend of practical and classroom based learning, with a specific emphasis upon scenario-based learning that relates to real incidents and delivers real lessons learned.
