Sporting events such as football competitions are highly attractive soft targets. Event organisers need to review and determine the likelihood and impact all threats to their tournament. Safety and security planning for a sporting event must be based on threat and risk assessments to determine the most effective and efficient mitigation measures.

In this course, participants will learn about the art and science of threat and risk assessments. Through qualitative analysis, participants will identify the threats to a sporting event and quantify them graphically on a risk matrix to effectively calculate a risk score.

This course is online via e-Learning using the ICSS’s Learning Management System (LMS). The participants are responsible for managing their own learning over the three (3) week duration.

Participants are required to complete the following learning activities:

  • Video Lectures: Using self-study participants must watch a series of pre-recorded online video lectures covering the knowledge of facts, concepts and theories related to the course subject matter.

  • Course Knowledge Evaluation: Participants must complete a course knowledge evaluation administered via a series of multiple-choice questions of the course subject matter. Participants must obtain a minimum passing grade of 70%.
