SPECIALIST
SURVEILLANCE RECONNAISSANCE (SpSR)

TRAINING COURSES

OVERVIEW

Our training courses are based on current UK Special Forces Training, Tactics and Procedures (TTP’s). UKSF is widely known as being at the forefront of SpSR.

Training can be delivered at one of our two training venues in the UK or by a Consulting Team at a location of the client’s choosing. Each course can be taught in English or the local language of the host nation using interpreters.

Achieving the quality of service we expect to deliver requires two critical components: firstly a dynamic and current understanding of the threats and risks of a given situation and secondly the physical, technical and holistic approach to mitigating them.
