Level 2 Award in Behavioural Detection Analysis

Behavioural Detection Analysis: Develop your understanding of behavioural detection analysis with this course. The aim of this course is not to teach you how to recognise very specific behaviours. Our aim instead is to give you a general understanding of anomalous behaviour. What makes things odd. The desired outcome as a result of you completing this training would be to give you the confidence that you’re capable of identifying anomalous behaviour. And in turn are empowered to act on your observations combined with your gut feeling – something no amount of artificial intelligence will be able to replace.

This entry-level Behavioural Detection Analysis course in the basics of good behavioural detection creates an organisation-wide culture of involvement in risk reduction and keeping public spaces protected by spotting a threat before it becomes one. This need is relevant to any crowded place that needs to reduce its threat risk – retail businesses, entertainment and sports venues, airports, ports, rail stations – just by involving employees in the team effort to keep themselves and their organisation safe.

The set of simple procedures in this course gives trainees the confidence to assess the baseline of average behaviours and spot those behaviours which are out of the ordinary and then gives a straightforward instruction in how to conduct an initial ‘Resolution’ conversation to work out why the person might be exhibiting stress behaviours. It’s not about increasing suspicion – it’s about increasing awareness. Engaging in good behavioural detection practices across an organisation is a vital part of keeping that organisation strong. It’s a win-win – in most cases, you will provide improved customer service to innocent but stressed people, but in those vital few cases you may identify a possible threat from a person whose behaviours and their story just don’t add up.

And the reason you can play such a vital part is that even with all the technical and AI support available nowadays – CCTV cameras, facial recognition – nothing is more effective at recognising human behaviour…than a human.
