Course Details

Recognition of Firearms and Explosives (RFX) Instructors Course

Our RFX course will provide all personnel with a comprehensive insight into firearms, explosives devices, incendiary devices and other prohibited or threat items. Also providing the necessary understanding and skills required to recognise and identify items that may threaten their particular company/industry.

The RFX course also provides all personnel with a foundation of knowledge and skills required to enable them to train their own staff in the recognition of firearms, explosives devices, incendiary devices and other prohibited or threat items.

The course is specifically designed to ensure everybody benefits from delivery methodology; theoretical information is fully blended with a comprehensive, practical, hands-on display which also highlights strengths and limitations of recognition and detection methods and equipment. The live explosive and firearms demonstration reinforces the theory and practical sections of the course and allows all personnel to physically experience firearms and explosives and their effects.
