Training – Consultancy.

TAGS® | Safe Tactics has been providing bespoke training and consultancy for military, law enforcement, rescue and other governmental special operations units since 2001. All over the globe. In Spring 2013 we decided to formalize this concept and continue under a new brand name “Safe Tactics Academy®”. We focus on high angle tactical and rescue operations.

COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING/CONSULTANCY WORLD WIDE

Rather than training the operator to use a specific tool (eg Air Launcher) we train the team to effectively perform a task (e.g. get 10 minutes off the existing boarding procedure and add safety by using modern equipment and the latest field proven procedures). This unique approach has proven to be very successful for many units.

Why Safe Tactics Academy

Our mission in regards to training:

  • Follow all the international Health and Safety (HSE) standards, directives and guidelines.
  • Latest technology, equipment & succesful procedures.
  • Safety measurements are important but have to be reasonable in regards to the job.
  • Strong relation with field of operation (train to the job/train as you fight).
  • Developed in cooperation with the customer: tailored and flexible.
  • Trainers with many years of operational experience.
  • Possibility to implement training solutions on short notice.
  • High quality standards: small groups and highly qualified trainers. We track a zero accident rate.
  • Fair price / quality proportion.

SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Like you do, we want your operators to return home safe. TAGS® | Safe Tactics clocks up an impressive track record with over 14 years experience in this field of operation and a zero accident rate!

CONSULTANCY:
HIGH ANGLE OPS

The experts in our team have been active in your field of operation for decades. Solving operational problems on a daily basis. We offer comprehensive consultancy services in the field of tactical and rescue high angle access operations: remote (e.g. mountain), urban, industrial and maritime environments.

SOME EXAMPLES:

  • Define a quality management system (HSQE) for access training including a training and certification scheme for operators engaged in high angle access work.
  • Assist in the implementation of maritime interception/boarding: procedures, equipment selection (not limited to our equipment) and bespoke training.
  • Risk assessment for a specific task (or site).

TAGS® TRAINING CENTRE OR ON SITE

Most of the courses are held in our purpose built 600m2 training centre near Amsterdam Airport in the Netherlands. It features several structures which makes practical scenario training look like the real thing. Stances, ladders, towers, confined spaces, several rooftops, buildings, balconies, breach area, etc. Here we can “train to the job” in a safe learning environment.

As everything is risk assessed, made safe for training, pre-rigged/ set up etc. no valuable time is lost. Not weather depending. Covert location; like you we don’t want to share your tactics with bystanders (OpSec). Many of the courses can also be facilitated on site (worldwide).

Soon we will feature all courses here. For now please check our Access Magazine 12.
