Counter-Terrorism Awareness Training

CityCo and Manchester BID facilitate free counter-terrorism awareness training in partnership with Greater Manchester Police and North West Counter Terrorism Unit.

Invaluable for both management and operations-level staff, ACT Awareness (Action Counters Terrorism) is a national government programme produced by NaCTSO – the National Counter Terrorism Security Office.

ACT is available as an online e-learning platform and CityCo runs the course face-to-face with an expert trainer from Manchester’s CTU. The training guides on the current level of threat, how to prepare and recognise suspicious activity and how to respond if necessary.

We can also offer ‘Table-Top’ training scenarios around business continuity challenges and resilience planning.
