A large portion of the course is conducted in “real life” structured scenarios in and out of shopping centres, busy city streets and residential areas. The course takes in operating conditions such as daylight, low light and darkness. These scenarios commence at generic level, and build confidence and competency in the surveillance operatives throughout the course. Individual and team briefings and debriefings are provided on every occasion and where appropriate can be conducted in the field.
