Classroom. Access to a classroom and amenities is required to present electronic forms of learning throughout the course. Separate areas are also required to conduct individual de briefings. It is desirable (but not essential) that the classroom is located near to an area suitable to conduct some surveillance activities.

Vehicles. Fleet vehicles from the host agency are to be used. Assessors will travel with learners in vehicles on some occasions.
