Kidnap and Hostile Environment Training in VR | Peter Moore

Is a two week gruelling and sometimes degrading kidnap and hostile environment training really suitable for most EP professionals and their principals? Equally would a paper based tick box exercise offer any thing of actual value? Introducing the possible middle way in virtual reality simulated training being developed by Peter Moore, IT consultant and former hostage.

Peter Moore has written several times for the Circuit Magazine and has given testimony of his ordeal and we are grateful to have him return on the podcast to explore:

  • What are the benefits and scope of possibilities of virtual reality training today for protectors?
  • How can you convince your Principal to participate in awareness training without scaring them?
  • Would a lengthy and hyper realistic in person kidnap and ransom training course be of any benefit to a non Government or Military protector?
  • Where does awareness training sit within professional qualifications being sought by protectors?
  • Should you integrate 'conduct after capture' training for both principal and protector and how should a kidnap subject react to the key hours after being taken?

With Guest Editor Chuck Randolph:

We are delighted to welcome Chuck Randolph, co-host of Conversations in Close Protection as a guest editor this week to introduce and conclude our interview with Peter Moore. It is a great opportunity to continue cross-collaboration with our international EP friends!
