MONTREAL, June 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Tactical Training Academy (CTTA) (Pink Sheets:CTTG), a leader in the worldwide training of peace and law enforcement officers, is pleased to provide this update of its current activities.
Mine-Site Security Teams
CTTA has been approached by consultants working for TSX listed mining companies with operations in South America and west Africa. With the increase in value of gold and diamonds, mine-site security has become an evident and important part of many mining operations. Mine sites are increasingly dependent on armed personnel in order to ensure economic viability.
In view of this opportunity, CTTA is developing multiple teams which will be comprised of experienced operatives including ex-Rangers, former Special Forces, and former UN personnel.
Defensive Tactics Training
In order to respond to actual and anticipated customer needs CTTA is currently training twelve experienced industry individuals who will become instructors in order to execute current contracts in the United States and overseas. The increase in the number of instructors will be required for projected contracts in the Middle East as a result of intensive business development activities in the region. The comprehensive "train-the-trainer" course will be completed on June 23.
Montreal Airports Airport Patrol Certification Program
The Canadian Tactical Training Academy's Training Facility in Montreal was the site of the recently concluded annual re-certification of security officers who comprise the Airport Patrol and are assigned to protecting the Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and the Montreal Mirabel International Airport (YMX). More than 200 certificates were awarded to the successful participants.
There are two certification programs, each of which is valid for a two year period. Participants are re-certified in each program on alternate years.
The mission of the Airport Patrol is to protect passengers, personnel and facilities against all threats to civil aviation at Montreal–Trudeau and Montreal–Mirabel airports. The patrol has approximately 250 members, divided into a number of specialized teams, including drugs and explosives detection and investigations.
