Suspect Item Assessment Training - WorkSafe Secure

Suspect Item Assessment is the training accreditation suitable for people who are required to recognise and assess if items are of a suspicious nature.

Our 3-hour course delivered by leading industry experts provides a comprehensive operational framework in the assessment of an item as to whether it is suspected to be an improvised explosive device (IED), or not.
