Guard Training Program
A major oil & gas company invited G4S Specialist Training to conduct an needs assessment for the establishment of an oilfield protection force for their seismic operations in the Ogaden Region of Ethiopia.Issues:
The client was concerned that their 33 man field security team (FST) lacked the necessary skills to protect an oil field in a high risk environment.
An initial field assessment was carried out by one of our Training Consultants to help the client determine the FST’s role and scope of work. A training needs analysis and onsite assessments were conducted to ascertain the training requirements and security needs. This was followed by a review and redesign of the security Risk Management Processes.
Our training consulting team worked together on the development of training objectives and course design to establish a fully operational armed local national security force capable of conducting site security for base camp and seismic operations.
A training consultant team of 4 highly qualified instructors were deployed to deliver an intensive 18 day program. On completion, the training consultants provided the assessed standard of the FST and a list of recommendations of how to improve and maintain the FST operational capability. In order to leave a lasting legacy, the training consultants designed a refresher programme to ensure enduring effectiveness of initial training course.
The training programme included the following; threat awareness; field operations; organisations & responsibilities; Rules of Engagement; Command & Control; Camp Security; Camp Standing Orders; Use of a Quick Reaction Force; Communications; Personnel & Vehicle Searching; SOPs; Foot & Mobile Patrols; Principals of Voice Control; Close Protection Foot & Vehicle Immediate Drills; Safe use of Firearms; Zeroing & Instinctive Shooting with an AK47 assault rifle; Vehicle Breakdown ‘Actions on’ & Tyre Changing; Vehicle maintenance & Checks; Use of GPS, Driver Training; All Terrain Driving; Principles of Navigation.
Benefits to the Client:
Following a detailed assessment, by a highly qualified training & capacity building consultant, a truly bespoke training program was designed, delivered and implemented. The focus by the team was not only to deliver a first rate training program but to also ensure that the FST continued to improve and develop following on from the program.
