About Course

Module 1: Overview of the Swiss Federal Act on Private Security Services Abroad (PSSA), human rights and international humanitarian law (IHL) As a requirement by the Swiss Government, private security service providers and other entities engaged in connected services, and their personnel must comply with and be trained on the provisions of the Federal Act on Private Security Services Abroad (PSSA). Excel Security Training has designed a well-researched course to help security service providers and their employees comply with these obligations. Private actors, especially those with activities in complex environments should make themselves and their employees aware of the implications of their activities abroad. Some of them are unaware of the legality of their activities in such contexts, and the legal obligations they have including the need to comply with international and domestic laws in the countries in which they operate. This Module is particularly addressed to companies with activities abroad and their personnel, including security guards, team leaders, technicians/ engineers, management involved in authorising activities, senior management and compliance officers.
