The PROTECT MANAGERS has been designed for Government Officials and Technical Advisors tasked with managing or overseeing law enforcement operations in protected areas, or forests within Southeast Asia. It has also been designed for civilian technical advisors working with or applying to work with international organizations, companies, or non-government organizations prone to technical oversights on protected area enforcement issues.
This course is a 16-day (103.5 hrs) theory and practical competency based training course. The average instructional day will start at 08:00 hrs and finish at 20:00 hrs. Participants will be required to stay in the field overnight during the course.
The Method of Instruction is conducted in the following sequence, Explain, Demonstrate, and Confirmation either by questionnaires and/or practical application. The training will also utilize a Command Post Exercise (CPX) using a fictitious protected area with real life problems and scenarios that are required to be resolve. This will facilitate linking the lessons and practical application from the field tactical level into an overall strategic planning and operational decision making process. This will enable participants to update their understanding of the concept of effective enforcement patrolling. The training will enable managers of PA enforcement to manage effective strategic and tactical enforcement operations. The course will also introduce the Enforcement Supervisors to improve and maintain skills, knowledge and attitude standards.
