High Risk Travel

One-day Seminar

The CPPS High Risk Travel Seminar provides an interactive environment in which to discuss the best practices for traveling safely in the international environment, as well as survive a worst case scenario of being abducted by criminal/terrorist elements or detained by officials of a foreign government.  Topics discussed include safe travel practices, surveillance detection, surviving abduction, surviving captivity, minimizing exploitation, captivity resolution, as well as proven techniques to employ when detained by authorities of a recognized foreign government, such as immigration/customs, local police, and internal security personnel.

Experiential, role-play scenarios are woven throughout the day to psychologically challenge select students with typical dilemmas facing hostages/detainees, as well as inject an “artificial anxiety’ into the training to assist students in cementing the lessons learned for future potential recall.  Examples from actual hostage/detainee events and interviews are used to enhance and clarify teaching points, as well as address student questions.


"After 27 years as a security practitioner in both the public and private sector, I have never attended a course that was so impactful and relevant to my position as the Global Director of Security and Safety.  The Advanced High Risk Travel course was the best training I have received relating to international travel awareness and abduction survival.  I have strongly recommended that all of my high-profile travelers attend this program.  The professionalism of your staff and instructors was outstanding."

Darin Goodwiler, CPP | Director of Safety & Security | Briggs & Stratton


"Hands down, the best training I have received in the private sector."
