ACT Awareness e-Learning wins international award
Counter Terrorism Policing's ACT Awareness e-Learning tool has scooped top prize at a prestigious European business resilience awards event.
Beating off rival submissions to scoop the Business Continuity Institute’s ‘Innovation’ category, ACT Awareness e-Learning provides organisations large and small with a free-to-access course which could help prevent and mitigate against terrorist attacks.
Since its launch just over a year ago, 4000 companies have registered to use ACT Awareness e-Learning and 250,000 individuals have taken part online, completing more than one million modules of training.
Detective Superintendent Michael Orchard, National Co-ordinator for Protective Security, added: “We have seen that attacks can take place anywhere at any time. All locations that attract large numbers of people to their premises should take steps to help protect their staff and visitors. Everyone working in crowded places – not just those who have a security role – can follow the course and be in a stronger position to help protect themselves, colleagues and the public.”
