Eight New CCTP’s Certified in UK

Eight security professionals have recently completed the first Certified Counter Terrorism Practitioner (CCTP) course to be held in the UK, with immense success.

The certification assesses ability and knowledge to apply counter terrorism and security planning best practice to real-life situations.

The inaugural UK introduction of the three-day CCTP exam preparation course was hosted by SGW Safety & Security at their Edwinstowe house, Nottinghamshire location, between the 18th and 20th July. The eight delegates travelled from variety of international organisations based in Spain, Dubai and the UK.

All delegates on the course successfully passed the CTTP programme, meeting rigorous professional standards of competence in protection, defence and security planning. The delegates are now able to inform prospective clients, industry professionals and other future employers of their counter terrorism certification.

Tom Broadbent from Aspro Security Services who completed and passed the CCTP course said: “The course was great value for money, the information gain was huge.”

As the global terrorism threat continues to increase, the Certified Counter Terrorism Practitioner (CCTP) certification keeps you up to date with the tools and tactics to counter and respond to evolving threats.

Today, the CCTP is the ONLY internationally recognized certification program in the field of counter-terrorism. The Certified Counter Terrorism Practitioner (CCTP) programme is highly recognised in countries like USA, Canada, UK, Malaysia, China, Indonesia, UAE, and more.
