Listen Here

Content
Transport hubs and facilities are particularly vulnerable to disruption from a range of sources, including terrorists. This module focuses on those features which distinguish road, rail, air, sea and river services in terms of potential threats and those mitigating factors which might be employed to counter those threats.

The module uses four cases studies to explore the particular challenges which are faced respectively by road, rail, public transport systems and finally sea and port operations.

Participants are introduced to standard procedures and measures, and encouraged to relate and assess the theoretical material presented to their own professional sectors.

What you will be able to do
On successful completion of this module you will be able to:
  • Demonstrate an effective understanding of the need to maintain secure transport hubs
  • Identify that range of factors which need to be addressed in developing a comprehensive transport hub security plan
  • Outline and justify an appropriate range of tactics to be used in the respective settings of road, sea and air transport systems
  • Evaluate the respective merits of technological and human resource elements in developing secure transport hubs.
Assessment arrangements
The Assessment arrangements comprise two parts; the first by means of in-class exercises; the second, to develop a proposal to secure the transport hub of a significant installation.
