Get in touch about training

Unique to CREST

Self-Defence / Citizen Arrest / Law Training / Conflict Management

We can provide training packages to security companies/stewards/venue operators/stadium operators or festival organisers on conflict management, self-defence, use of handcuffs, legislation regarding use of force, any person arrest powers and collective or strategic use of force.

These courses are accessible for anyone who employs lone workers or staff that may find themselves in vulnerable situations. As well as anyone with an SIA licence this can provide much needed, supportive up-skill training to plug the gaps between SIA courses finishing and the police intervening.

Integrated Threat Management

We will give you the tools and training to undertake this process yourself and provide you with access to our unique Mitigation Model™©, Crowd Tension Indicator™© and Integrated Threat Matrix™©

Event Planning

Detailing how to plan for an event. How to get your ideas down onto paper, through a safety advisory group and into reality. We will provide you with a suite of templates for you to take away and use post course.

Statement Taking / Exhibit Handling

We can provide training on how to enable staff to write their own statements. Essential for anyone who regularly interacts with law enforcement or employment tribunals. This includes the detail of how to correctly seize, package and handle exhibits and how to refer to them in a statement so they meet the evidential standards required to support law enforcement and successful prosecutions.

Stress Management and Awareness

Training for employees, first and second line managers on the ability to detect and manage stress. Supporting victims with empathy and compassion while maintaining company policies and procedures, safe guarding all parties.

*Handling suspicious packages in the mail - CBRNe

Sending nasty items through the post to high profile people is a popular criminal tactic and sadly its on the rise. So this course is ideal for any large organisation that has its own mail room or any security company that currently provides or wants to adopt mail screening as part of its close protection services.

*Counter Terrorism Training

*Domestic Extremism Awareness

CREST Planning supports peaceful protest and believes it’s important for citizens of a democratic society to be able to express themselves. However if your business or its employees are targeted by protestors it can be disconcerting. Especially if those protestors start threatening violence or criminal damage. We can help you prepare for and recognise these threats by providing training on the very latest emerging trends, groups and tactics. These courses are delivered by our public order policing experts that are trained and experienced commanders, tactical advisors or previously worked at the UK National Counter Terrorism Police Operations Centre.
