Operational Methodologies Modernisation
Failure of the traditional security systems in several regions of the world in it confrontation with global terrorism and increasing urban crime, encourages a conceptual change from a passive / reactive security system to a proactive security approach. This approach's main objective is to prevent criminal acts / violence by developing security awareness, improving operational capability and ensuring the early detection of an aggressor’s intentions.
The need for this conceptual shift raises the following question: Is it possible to train security personnel/police in proactive security concepts through traditional training processes?
AMOT, the Advanced Methodology for Operational Training, is derived from a thorough analysis of partially successful and failed encounters between security/police forces and their adversaries. We learn that the lack of knowledge or technical ability isn’t the main cause for that failure, but components such lack of operational awareness, lack of early identification of opponents, incorrect incident management and decision-making processes, and other items which are often not covered in standard training procedures.
AMOT bridges the gap between current operational needs that arise due to the situation at hand, and the traditional methodologies that are inadequate for a constantly changing reality.
AMOT's basis in the foundations of experiential learning transforms the training process into a unique experience in which the trainee, through personal and group experience, gradually learns the range of relevant operational skills, essential to their continued careers as security professionals.
Principles that our training methodology is based on:
➣ Comprehensive, holistic hands on Experiential Learning
➣ Integration of professional subjects into the training
➣ Training in a realistic environment, according to the required operational needs
➣ Learning relevant action and reaction principles
➣ Integration of the most varied factors (professional, environmental, physical, psychological, etc.) that influence the decision making process, incident management and operational performance during times of duress.
