The Hostile Environment Explosive Detection Dog Handler course aims to provide the learner with the basic skills knowledge and understanding required to ensure the provision of a professional level of service as an EDD Handler deployed in hostile environment on joint military and private security operations.

“Crossing any border into any war zone constitutes active service as soon as you enter. You don’t have time to train with foreign weapons or receive tactical field firing once deployed. To bridge this operational deficit Malpeet K9 Academy has developed a Hostile Environment Dog Handling course that caters for learners that have completed formal training as an Explosive Detection Dog Handler and who are intent on employment in hostile environments. Our training strategies endeavour to maintain an effective balance between theoretical and practical training ensuring the development of a confident competent hostile environment dog handler.”

This is not an attendance course you will be continually assessed throughout with many topics intended to improve the mental and physical ability of our students as they learn to deal with conflict situations, violence and terrorism with realistic scenario based training.

Training (and or dogs) will only be supplied to countries that do not have sanctions imposed on them by the UK, UN or the EU and after gaining guidance from the United Kingdom Foreign Commonwealth Office.

This program meets the requirements of those learners who have formal training and operational experience as Explosive Detection Dog Handlers. It would also be suitable for members of HM Armed Forces, Police or Prison Service who wish to take on an Explosive Detection Dog Handler role in a Hostile Environment. It’s also suitable for none UK nationals of the Armed Forces, Police, Emergency Services or Private Security. All learners should hold an appropriate S.I.A. license (unless exempt).

All learners should hold an appropriate Military or Police qualification in EDD handling or hold the HABC Level 4 Certificate for EDD Handlers.

All learners should have proven EDD handling experience within the last 3 years.

It is recommended that learners and their dogs are assessed prior to commencement of training for which additional GLH’s may be identified.

Learners holding the HABC Level 4 Certificate for an EDD Handler that have not completed a module on Route Search will be required to achieve such competency prior to commencement of the Hostile Environment training
