A very cold December course showed me the realities of surveillance, the training involved and the patience a specialist needs. There is a lot to learn on this course but with the high quality tuition and support you will learn a surprisingly amount of valuable information in a short time. Listening alone will not get you through this course, you have to be keen, willing to learn and determined to succeed at completing the final surveillance exercise. I took these skills with me abroad as part of counterInsurgency and they were very useful when taking part in Human Terrain Mapping to seek out objectives. If you are serious about surveillance as a career, or similar intelligence gathering specialist in the security industry, then this is the course for you. Very good value for money.
