The Controlled Solutions Group Improvised Explosive Device (IED) course has been developed by leading experts in the field of counter-terrorism. It has been designed to provide the individual, or organisation, with the information they require to deal with an incident involving an IED. The course is relevant to individuals, or organisations, working within the aviation, industrial, retail, leisure or local government sectors.
