This 5-day program affords organisations a negotiator response capability and provides selected staff with the skills to attend high-end negotiator incidents. The course is the first of its kind offered outside policing agencies and allows for full integration with existing police negotiator units. The course is team oriented and intense and is followed by a skills enhancement and maintenance program to ensure competency and currency. The program is currently developing capability within the Australian correctional and immigration services field. Core elements in this training include negotiator team structure, negotiation elements and boundaries, safety and tactics, dynamic risk assessment processes, psychological aspects of negotiation, communication and mental illness, cultural diversity and the use of interpreters. The course includes many hours of daily practical scenario work and produces team members that can respond, resolve and recover critical negotiator incidents.
