Covered in this course

The Bomb Threats and Suspicious Packages Training course is broken down into 2 sections.

1) Identifying Risk

In Bomb Threats we look at what you should do if you receive a telephoned bomb threat. We explain what information should be collected and extra details that will be helpful to the police.

In Suspicious Packages we give you an idea of the tell-tale signs that could mean a package contains an explosive device or has other dangerous contents inside and explain what to do if you come across a suspicious package in your workplace.

2) Evacuation and Searches

Here we look at evacuation – what you should do and where you should go. We also consider whether evacuation is the right course of action. Sometimes it’s safer to remain inside the building.

We also look at searches, who should do them and how, and the part you may play in this.

Evacuation and searches are a vital part of keeping people safe during a bomb threat

The training course was fine

I had real problems clicking on answers throughout the presentation and the test to the extent that I nearly gave up. It directly led to two wrong answers because I clicked back and then forward to the next page again and the answers had moved. It was really poor in that regard and I hope it can be improved.For information, I was on a council laptop logged on at home.

On the whole good awareness training.

No summary provided

quick and to the point

It's was visual which was ideal for myself to learn. I felt it was straight to the point and was clearly presented. It was easy to navigate round and was ideal in length of time.

Many electronic course's/training can feel like a chore but I found this one was well balance in both the delivery and completion.
