Major Sporting Events (MSE) are very exciting global sporting experiences typically occurring every few years where communities rally together over sport to create an unforgettable experience. The top three (3) MSE include Olympic Games, FIFA World Cups and Rugby World Cups; however, there are many more examples which fall under this category. A safe and secure MSE is the aim and hope of all those involved in its planning as well as the millions of people around the world for whom it represents the ‘greatest show on earth’.
In this course, participants will be introduced to the size and scope of a MSE and what safety and security operations are required to deliver a safe and secure event. This is merely an introduction to the research and best practices around delivering successful MSE.
