TSCM field exercise

Course code: TSCM-FX

TSCM field exercise is a two day course of the benefit of personnel who are already engaged in Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) work, but seek the opportunity to practice and develop their skills within a purpose-built and realistic environment.

It offers TSCM practitioners opportunity to practice using their own TSCM search equipment, and where time permits we may also introduce a range of other TSCM search equipment.

We keep the structure of our field exercises flexible and will tailor them to your requirements. We therefore encourage customers to identify and discuss their specific area of interest with UK NACE training personnel well in advance.

Who this field exercise is for
