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. ASTA is partnered with CTR Secure Services who are approved by the FCO to promote its guidance on travel security awareness.
The course is broken down into easy modules that follow your journey from start to finish and focus 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.
To enhance the knowledge of the candidate in terms of travel security and keeping safe whilst abroad.
