Course description

Planning for Event Security

The one day Planning for Event Security course is highly practical and relies on the experts leading the training, with real life examples, discussions and exercises. Despite years of collective experience in event planning, events are impacted by poor planning, severe weather, security threats and other 'unforeseen circumstances'. Those responsible will initially respond that the incident was unpredictable and had little precedent. Subsequent investigations (and often these are fatal incident enquiries) invariably discover that not only were the events foreseeable and predictable, but they have happened before, albeit somewhere else in the world.

Given the growth of international and national major events, it is essential that those involved at all command levels have a fundamental understanding of issues related to event security, crowd safety and management.
