Training – Consultancy.

TAGS® was established by Safe Tactics BV and have 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 formalized this concept and continued under the brand name “Safe Tactics Academy”; with focus on high angle tactical and rescue operations.

Early 2018 we acquired TACTS BV; a well known tactical training and consultancy provider with an impressive portfolio and track record. We also merged the specialised high angle rescue and trauma care portfolio of another company within the group; Ascent Safety BV. Whereas Safe Tactics and TACTS where focussing on tactical end users; Ascent Safety focussed on governmental rescue organisations, NGO’s and private sector companies.

Joining forces we decided to continue as TAGS® Academy; a true ‘one stop training provider’ for high risk operations. We noticed that ‘lessons learned’ in a specific field could be applied to under different circumstances. Resulting in highly effective, super safe; field proven solutions, that help save lives.


TAGS facilitates highly innovative and effective risk based training- and consultancy solutions for Military, Law Enforcement & Rescue Operations and travel in high risk area’s. Providing a “one stop solution” for NATO-Friendly Governments, -NGO’s and vetted private sector companies.
We will feature our complete range of training and services here soon. Until then please have a look at our latest brochure.

Our mobile training team travels to the client’s location, however training can also be presented in The Netherlands. TAGS® Academy has the availability of several training locations: process installations, close quarter battle structures, purpose built urban/industrial climbing centre, ships, classrooms, swimming pool, etc. This makes it possible to approach reality as closely as possible. Various realistic scenarios can be imitated on all of those facilities including large scale incidents. One of the center’s location is on open water. This offers the opportunity to provide maritime security related training.


TAGS® Academy is committed to excellence in organizational leadership, management, continuous innovation, organizational ethics and diversity, and to an unyielding focus on the client. Our Training and Consulting Division provides formal group training programs, lectures, and seminars to Law enforcement, Military, Rescue, government, and private sector organizations.
