OPEN- tuesday 16th october – 10.30-13.30pm – project argus

Project ARGUS is an initiative developed by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) and delivered by Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSAs) throughout the UK.

This three hour multimedia simulation poses questions and dilemmas for participants working in syndicates and aims to raise awareness of the threat from terrorism, providing practical advice on preventing, handling and recovering from an attack.

Project ARGUS is ideal for managers in areas such as facilities, security, reception and those responsible for creating and maintaining response plans. However we do welcome all staff as we know that in the event of a major incident, anyone within the organisation could be in a position where they need to exercise those response plans.

This will be held on Tuesday 16th October 2018 from 10.30-13.30pm at St Mary’s Church, Putney High St, London SW15 1SN.

If you would like to book a place for you or a colleague on any of these courses please contact info@positivelyputney.co.uk or ring 020 3904 7986 providing persons name and business name.
