Frequently asked

Surveillance detection is a series of covert procedures and tactics that are designed and implemented in order to confirm or deny whether there is hostile surveillance of a principal, place or event.

Counter reconnaissance is the measure taken to prevent an enemy's reconnaissance.

This course is designed to teach students primarily with a close protection background how to protect their Principal against sophisticated threats through anti and counter surveillance. 

The main aim of this course is to teach all fundamentals of professional detection and countering surveillance tactics, techniques and procedures. To equip students with overt and covert techniques as well as enhancing existing skills and procedures, to a level that allows independent operation.
And lastly, to train and select suitable candidates to work both independently as AZTEC operators as well as part of integrated operations with additional team members and external agencies

By the end of the course you will be able to carry out sophisticated 'overt' and 'covert' drills to either evade, deter or gather intelligence on the most sophisticated of surveillance teams.
