Triangular Group Academy (TGA) offers a Dutch professional observation course that covers the required theory and works with a number of practical scenarios. In addition, the course includes a very challenging final scenario to really challenge the team's participants.
A number of principles that are essential for efficient and generally secretive observation, such as appropriate decision-making, preparation, the use of alibis, covers, and non-police behavior are extensively dealt with. Reconnaissance, (counter-) surveillance versus (counter-) observation, and observation technology are also a core of the course.
During the real-life practical and final scenarios, all acquired knowledge and skills are tested and continuously evaluated by seasoned instructors who have earned their spurs with the Dutch intelligence services.
The course offers both an excellent domestic and foreign module in, for example, Estonia.
TGA's instructors have ample operational experience with Dutch intelligence services and special police units. During the course, practical experiences are shared with the team. The instructors tailor the training to the professional context of the participants.
Depending on budget and the requirements of the team's participants, the TGA Observation Course can be tailor-made. Please contact us if you are interested and we will elaborate on the possibilities, or draw up a quotation.
In the Observation Training Course, tactics and techniques are taught of which the application may be sensitive. TGA will only transfer the knowledge to teams and companies that have been pre-screened by TGA. Anyone that wishes to participate in the course must be in possession of a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG) and must further engage in a telephone screening interview and background study. If the outcome of all teammembers is positive, the team can be registered for the relevant study program.
