Develop the skills necessary to consider risks and issues during large, medium and small scale events. Learn the fundamentals of crowd management, examine implementable safety plans and evaluate their effectiveness and efficacy.

Despite years of collective experience in event planning, events are impacted by poor planning, severe weather, security threats and other 'unforeseen circumstances'.

Subsequent investigations invariably discover that not only were the events foreseeable and predictable, but they have happened before.

The Planning for Event Security course is highly practical and relies on experts leading the training, with real-life examples, discussions and exercises. The focus of the course is on strategic and operational considerations, with a strong emphasis on crowd dynamics and management.
