Welcome to the travel security course, Millions of people travel every year on business or for pleasure, often to countries that have a high risk of crime and terrorism. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has developed the Know Before You Go (KBYG) programme to aid individuals or groups travelling abroad to remain safe. iSMTA has partnered with CTR High-Risk Security & Investigations Services Ltd (CTR) who is approved by the FCO to promote its guidance on travel security awareness and this e-learning course has been produced in collaboration with CTR Services in accordance with the FCO’s guidelines.
Travel Security Course Breakdown
The course is broken down into easy Modules that follow your journey from start to finish and focuses on best practices to enable you to have a safe and secure trip. Each Module will guide you through practical, effective steps for remaining safe, so that by the end of the course you will have an awareness of how potentially unsafe situations arise and a suite of planned responses to such situations, should they occur.
This course is inline with the following organisation to safeguard travellers. This is achieved by our co-operation with CTR High-Risk Security & Investigations Services Ltd and the FCO Know Before You Go Scheme.
