International Crisis Management

Port-au-Prince | Erbil | Ciudad Juárez | Bogotá | Sarajevo | Beirut

We have added numerous subjects to the International Security Advisor program to make the new International Crisis Management course. This one-of-a-kind certificate program was developed by experienced international crisis managers, negotiators, and security professionals that have spent their careers traveling to foreign lands and dealing with a variety of challenges from covert protection details to Kidnap for Ransom negotiations. Instructors are SECFOR Intentional staff.

The ICM Program

The online portion of the ICM program includes travel safety, threat mitigation during air travel, emergency language, cultural training, pre-advance work, mapping, remote security considerations, high threat protection strategies, regional familiarization & mission planning, before heading to an international location for the final 7 days of the course. Once on the ground, course participants will complete full advances before completing a protective mission, and conflict management scenarios while immersing yourself into local language, culture and receiving regular regional security briefings by local SMEs. International locations course participants may travel to during the ICM module are Beirut-Lebanon, Caracas-Venezuela, Bogota-Colombia, Manila-Philippines, Cd. Juarez-Mexico, Sarajevo-Bosnia, Port Au Prince-Haiti, and other locations. 

Crisis Management Module

Taught by working Kidnap & Ransom Crisis Negotiators, and security teams that provide recovery investigations, money drops and other crisis management support services to the same. The program begins by taking participants through crisis management case development and resolution which includes actual case studies that your instructors have worked in Mexico, Nigeria, the Middle East, Haiti, and other high risk areas of the world. ICM instructors will guide course participants through the building of case files as well as proven negotiation techniques focusing on kidnapped personnel overseas. We will cover managing the Country Management Team (CMT) setting up your NOC (Negotiation Operations Center) as well as working with TPIs (Third Party Intermediaries) and translators.  There are no formal courses that teach this unique process.
