All courses are designed to be hands-on, using state of the art TSCM equipment. Training classes are held at our facility in Tennessee, but on-site training is also available for customers who cannot travel to Tennessee.

Courses currently offered provide training on REI equipment as well as general sweep procedures. If you've never been to the REI Technical Security Training Center and are new to Technical Security Countermeasures, we recommend you start with the Countermeasures Core Concepts Course. The Core Concepts Level 1 Course is five days of training on what TSCM is, why it's important, and demonstrates methods for combating technical threats. See individual course description for more details.

Classes are held in our unique training rooms that simulate suspect environments. Students use these project rooms to exercise their knowledge of the use of detection equipment.

The REI training room contains many examples of suspect surveillance devices which are used for training exercises. Some of these suspect electronic devices include examples of RF transmitters with analog and digital modulation techniques, hidden surveillance cameras, tapped telephone and LAN lines, Infrared devices, Carrier current devices. The training facility also includes a high-end signal generator to simulate various types of modulation techniques.

REI has 5 full-time, highly qualified instructors with many years of cumulative experience in the surveillance field. Please take a look at the instructor Biographies and some of the classroom Photos. Instructor Biographies
