Further Notes About the Programme

Common sense tells us that time is of the essence in all hostage cases. The ability to respond quickly to an incident could be the difference between life and death.  However, how we approach time, as a tactical tool is also extremely important, the arguments of which are well explored in the programme.

It will cover how best to deal with hostage takers for monetary gain, political gain and those who want exposure for their cause. It will help make the distinction between common criminal and terrorist, help you distinguish between no hope and some hope.

We understand that different organisations will have their own policies and procedures to follow – as well as global standards to factor in. The programme explains all these issues clearly and impartially.

It is possible to dip in and out of each of the 16 modules, complete them in whatever order suits and, once finished, the learner will be awarded a certificate of completion.

The programme is not, however, a walk in the park! It’s in-depth, it’s real and it’s designed to put in place techniques and tools to help successfully negotiate and resolve a hostage-taking situation.

In our model, there are 5 stages of Hostage Incident Management:

1. ABDUCTION

2. TRANSPORTATION

3. CAPTIVITY

4. RESOLUTION

5. RECOVERY
