About this specialisation

Civilian armoured vehicles are a specialised security asset. In this course, we focus on a structured methodology that covers all the primary facets of through-life support for the vehicles. It is a well designed balance of the effectiveness of the vehicle design, support and "through-life" systems.


Target audience

This training is designed for Fleet Managers who have never managed an armoured vehicle, as well as those who have.

If you currently, or plan in the future, to have a civilian armoured vehicle in your fleet, this will give you a broad-based awareness and understanding of the unique characteristics of an armoured vehicle and the key issues of how to operate the armoured vehicle in the safest and efficient way.

For managers who already have armoured vehicles in their fleet, this training will be a good refresher of what you have might have already learned.

The course really gets into the gritty part of the science of ballistics and the protective capabilities of armoured vehicles. I have been using these types of vehicles for nearly 10 years and never fully understood the dynamics of ballistics. Valuable knowledge learned.

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to better understand what is ballistics and what it takes for the armoured vehicle to have adequate protection.

The course met my expectation. I think that the material is correctly selected, well informative, and introduced in an interesting manner.
