This three-day training course will provide port facility security officers with the training necessary to meet their obligations under the International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) Code. Adopting practical approaches to interpreting and implementing measures will help ensure compliance with maritime security requirements.
Who will benefit
This training is of value to everyone assigned as a port facility security officer or who is responsible for overseeing security of ports and port facilities. This training is a rapid and comprehensive programme that enables ports and port facilities to meet the requirements of the ISPS Code.
Understanding the complexities of port facility security officer requirements
The ISPS Code has far-reaching implications for personnel assigned responsibilities for the security and safety of your ports and port facilities. The new requirements for a port facility security officer, and their roles and responsibilities, are important considerations. We understand the complexities of the port facility security officer requirements, and provide approved training courses to help the PFSO, among other things, implement and exercise the port facility security plan.
This comprehensive training programme will train port facility security officers in the specific responsibilities they will have under the ISPS Code. Our training begins with comprehensive ISPS Code knowledge, fully immersing candidates in the mandatory elements of the Code. This forms the foundation for a practical port facility security officer.
This is followed by training that provides expertise in the specific requirements and duties to be carried out by port facility security officers such as:
conducting an initial comprehensive security survey of the port facility, taking into account the relevant port facility security assessment
ensuring that the port facility security plan is developed and maintained
implementing and exercising the port facility security plan - undertaking regular security inspections of the port facility
increasing security awareness and vigilance of the port facility personnel
co-ordinating with security services.
