Free online counter-terrorism training

Free online counter-terrorism training


13 Dec, 2019

Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence holders can now access free online counter-terrorism training from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), which has created special password-protected access for the security industry. This means that everyone – from frontline operatives to managers and directors – can access up-to-date counter-terrorism guidance free of charge.

The SIA is strongly encouraging everyone in the industry to complete this course, as it will help keep them and the public safe in the event of a terror attack. So please share this information with your colleagues – it could save lives.

  • How to get a PIN code: Send an email to the SIA with the subject line ‘PIN request for ACT e-learning’, in order to request a PIN code that will give you privileged access to the ACT (Action Counters Terrorism) e-learning. Once the SIA has replied with your PIN, you can go to the e-learning site to log in and start the training.
  • What is ACT e-learning? ACT Awareness e-learning is a new counter-terrorism awareness product designed for all UK-based companies and organisations. It provides nationally accredited corporate counter-terrorism guidance to help industry better understand and mitigate against current terrorist methodology.
