Advanced Designate Certification Training
TSCM Certification Training Schedule
Posted dates for training are subject to change, and it is strongly recommended that participants register, or indicate interest in attending any particular program as early as possible to secure a seat in class.
Our Resident Training Centre (RTC) can arrange a fixed rate shuttle service to and from the training centre, from Ottawa and Montreal airports, which must be arranged in advance, please contact us for details and to confirm the cost.
Please note that not all of our training programs are listed. There are an equal number of closed door session training for government, military and national security apparatus being run at undisclosed locations. Our instructors are also available for custom dedicated training for commercial and government entities on an ad hoc basis throughout the year.
Please note additional training programs are scheduled and run as ad hoc training, please call if the avove dates are not what you are looking for.
Additional nights of accommodation can be arranged to facilitate early arrival and late departure, to meet individual participant travel requirements.
The Resident Training Centre (RTC) TM can arrange a fixed rate shuttle service to and from the training centre, from Ottawa and Montreal airports, which must be arranged in advance, please contact us for details and to confirm the cost.
Please note that our Red Deer Training Centre (RDTC) TM is not a resident based facility. There are a number of local hotels within a 30 minute drive from our facility. Our RDTC TM facility is a unique 160 acre site which is ideally suited for "in the wild" training outside of the classroom.
Please note that the Virtual Classroom Series of instructor delivered briefings is free of charge for existing licensed technical operators and end user entities.
Tuition fees apply to non-licensed individuals and entities on a per participant basis.
Tap Capture Plot (TCP) TM | Dynamic Trace Autonomous Platform (DTAP) TM
Our recently added Advanced Geo-Location and RF Propagation Modeling has both revolutionized and raised the TSCM and SIGINT bar to an entirely new disruptive level across the commercial, law-enforcement, government and military sector.
Our Advanced Geo-Location Concepts (AGC) program is a five (5) day resident and non-resident format conducted at our Residence Training Centre (RTC) in Cornwall Ontario, or our Red Deer Training Centre (RDTC) in Red Deer Alberta facility.
DTAP TM Simulation of External RF Propagation Modeling Captured via an Autonomous Collection Platform
The mighty Kestrel defines the limitations and brings new innovative milestones with each generational release across the national security apparatus worldwide, both manually and autonomously saving governments thousands or millions of dollars when building out new systems.
The training is broken down to two (2) days of classroom instruction, one (1) day of facility level practical deployment and two (2) days of in the wild practical deployment.
This program is decidedly structured around our recently released Tap Capture Plot (TCP) TM geo-location heat mapping and RF propagation modeling capability, as well as our next generational release of our TCP Professional capability, referred to as the Dynamic Trace Autonomous Platform (DTAP) TM feature.
Our ability to to understand the threat environment based on a moving target threat model and our 40 years of field deployment has resulted in the only low cost, break from obsolete spectrum analyzers and embrace powerful new threat detection methodologies that make sense.
We firmly believe and deliver an operator centric resource that is intuitive, easy to use and packs a technology punch far beyond anything currently on the market. We build unique and disruptive new technology and leave the repacking of obsolete technology to the competition.
The Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software as become the number one go to software in 44 countries worldwide do to its powerful deployment capability, scalability, flexibility, and budget friendly reality.
The competition says we cannot backup most of what we claim Kestrel ® can do and tells its potential customers that the problem with Kestrel ® is that it finds too many signals and that it is too had for professional operators to use!
The reality is the we can backup everything we claim Kestrel ® can do and even go as far as stating that there are even more features that are not documented in the public domain revealed and taught only during our advanced training programs or within a restricted environment. Yes, Kestrel ® finds more signals than the completion I guess, at least by their own standards and I make no apology for this powerful ability.
Kestrel ® is extremely easy to use with minimal instruction and continues to to build on powerful new disruptive technology with each generational release.
Resident | Non-Resident Training Programs
Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., offers a number of professional level training opportunities in Canada at of Eastern Ontario Resident Training Centre (RTC) and our Western Canada Red Deer Training Centre (RDTC).
We reserve the right to refuse admission to any person, company, or organization that might utilize the knowledge or information gained, for purposes other than intended.
Prerequisites may apply for all of our training and certification programs, including a local law enforcement background security clearance screening report, upon request for non-government participants.
Applicants are requested to contact us prior to submitting the registration or making tuition payment, to determine if any special prerequisites apply on an individual basis for the program of interest.
Full payment must accompany the registration application along with all other requested information and documentation.
Should the application for training not be accepted, or the training program is cancelled or rescheduled for any reason, the full submitted payment will be refunded.
Please note that we have never had to cancel a training program once the training dates were confirmed.
It is important to understand that for resident based training, a portion of the total payment is forwarded to the RTC for accommodation and meals.
This part of the payment is therefore not refundable should the participant cancel, or not attend the training for any reason once accepted and confirmed into the program.
Please note that all of our training with exception of the 14-Day resident program can be run at your venue as a closed door training session. Please contact our office for details.
Participants are responsible to ensure that all requested documentation and information is forwarded with the application for training to prevent delays in acceptance into the program of interest.
Information includes a personal resume, professional references, and police background screening report (if requested), as well as a list of any personal TSCM equipment resources that you wish to bring with you to the training, or receive additional training on during the training, where time is permitting during the program.
We encourage participants to bring any TSCM related equipment resources to the training, which allows for a more integrated and customized training experience on the actual equipment resources that will ultimately be deployed in the field by the participant or organization.
A professional evaluation of the suitability of the equipment resources by qualified and knowledgeable Technical Security Instructors (TSI) may also be accomplished during the training at the request of the participant to highlight any vulnerabilities and / or deficiencies that many exist.
The TSB maintains TSCM equipment resources from all of the major equipment manufacturers, and brings this technology (old and new) to the table, and within a hands-on lab style training environment.
