Taught by experts from across Europe, and using a mix of presentations and workshops
Unfortunately, along with rising attacks on places of worship, faith leaders have also been targeted. Their safety and security are therefore a paramount concern. While they are an integral part of the protective security training for places of worship, it is also important to have a bespoke training programme focused specifically on their roles and responsibilities.
EFI’s one-day training programme covers matters of personal security, being safe when in a vulnerable position and institutional security. Delivered in person, the training builds the capacity of faith leaders to identify security risks in their institutions and communities, respond to red flags and be able to take appropriate action in the event of a security breach/attack, protecting both themselves and their wider congregation. The training helps places of worship to have well-qualified and trained, informed, and confident faith leaders who are better able to support the wider security needs of the institution.
