Qualification: Media Security Adviser
Prime have been delivering high risk training and security services to broadcast media organisations for the last 12 years. As part of our own commitment to quality service we deemed it necessary to provide enhanced training to our CPO's in order to better equip them for the dynamic situations they face when operating with a media crew. Working with organisations such as BBC, Sky, ITN and CNN, to name a few, our operators our frequently expected to facilitate the needs of a media crew whilst negotiating and mitigating live threats. As the role with media security has evolved Prime has worked closely with the media organisations to improve safety, part of this is the provision of specialist training to the CPO’s we supply. The result of this is organisations insisting that the CPO’s we supply have completed this level of training.
What we are offering;
Prime provide 2 levels of training for media security advisers. The first is a 1 day classroom based course where the focus is the directed towards the nuances of working with the media and the enhanced skills required to effectively carry out the role. Whilst this is a classroom based course our ethos towards all training is that we make it as practical as possible with a ‘hands on’ approach being paramount.

The second option is to complete our enhanced course which incorporates all of the above with the addition of live public disorder scenarios.
