An (in-house) Emergency Response Officer (ERO) is the first to take action until professional rescuers are present. An ERO is also responsible for fighting a starting fire, providing first aid and guiding an evacuation. Since 1994, the Dutch Working Conditions Act requires every employer to guarantee the safety of customers and employees by appointing ERO(s). Do you have employees? Than you are legally required to appoint at least one person as ERO and there always has to be at least one ERO present within your organization.
The ISA Academy provides various ERO-trainings and repetition trainings. The curriculum of the two-day ERO Basic Course consists of several parts: life-saving actions, fire-fighting, alarming, evacuating and communication. In addition, the ERO learns during this course how to reanimate and how to correctly use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). If desired, ISA Academy provides the ERO-training on your location. With our in-company trainings, we train in the same way ad with trainings on our own locations.
Participants of this course will be NIBHV-certified (certification of the Dutch Institute of In-house Emergency Response) by the ISA Academy with a validity of one year. The diploma, that participants receive, is a nationally recognized diploma. To keep the knowledge and skills of your EROs up-to-date and to extend the validity of the ERO-certificate, an annual repetition course is mandatory. We gladly unburden you of your complete administration concerning the repetition courses, by early alignment and scheduling.

More spare time, economic welfare and a high degree of mobility are the ingredients of the current population of (mass) events. An extensive market for events has occurred in a relatively short time span. Events carry along certain risks for the safety of the public. Hence, it is not surprising that there is a growing need for specialized emergency response services, which is aimed on events. And that is essentially different than emergency response services in an office building or e.g. a petrochemical company.
The most important feature of an event is the large collection of people and the (usually) short preparation time. The organization of the emergency response services has to be equipped for this in a quantitative and qualitative. With this, you should think of:
- Crowd Management: the orderly course of events (like a partial or whole evacuation) in which big numbers of people come together;
- The narrow collaboration with medical aid givers on an event and with the professional rescuers;
- Immediate care in the case of alcohol and drug use, but also in the case of overheating or hypothermia;
- The collaboration with special activities during the event, such as pyrotechnics.
The certification regulation ‘ERO for Events’ foresees in the growing need of a specialized ERO-training for events. Together with NIKTA (Dutch Institute for Quality Care, Training and Advisory) the ISA Academy has developed the certification regulation ‘ERO for Events’. In the training, the specific ERO-tasks are discussed in detail. Through this, security officers and other staff that has an ERO-task is trained targeted during an event. This greatly benefits the security of an event. The participant who has passed the course, receives the internationally accepted NIKTA ISO 17024 personal certificate ‘ERO for Events’.

Due to the ongoing hardening of society, aggression in society occurs more often. With increasing regularity, security officers are confronted with aggressive scenarios. Because of this, the ISA Academy offers the Aggression Reduction Training. During this training, students learn – by observing and listening – to recognize different forms of aggression in an as early possible stage. Consequently, students learn how to (verbally) act against these forms of aggression through customer-oriented and boundary-setting behavior. This enables them to act aggression reducing and to gain control over the situation as fast as possible.
On the basis of the aggression pyramid, students learn to analyze the non-verbal communication of the aggressive person and of themselves. After this, they learn how to maintain self-control in cases of aggression, through various exercises. In this way, they can escape the tension of the reaction and make a correct assessment and decision.

Providing security is about preventing unwanted actions, deliberately executed by people. In the traditional security, the security officer does not take action until a criminal act occurs. This method is reactive and often one is too late. To prevent this, there is Predictive Profiling. This is the executing of a threat assessment regarding a person, object or situation. You make this assessment based on suspicious indicators, in relation to a Modus Operandi (MO) or the Attacker Method of Operation (AMO). Working from the method of Predictive Profiling makes it possible to recognize preparatory criminal or terrorist acts and to prevent the imminent incident by taking the right follow-up steps.
During the Profiling training of the ISA Academy, you learn the basic theory and practice of Predictive Profiling. Based on practical situations, pattern and systems are covered that can be an indication for the preparation of unwanted activities. Also, you learn how to mitigate these in the planning fase. You are then capable of executing a threat assessment, through which you can recognize threats in an early stage and can take action against the threat. This proactive approach of the security process is essential for the efficient execution of security tasks. Contents of the training:
- Criminal planning cycle
- Threat analysis
- Suspicious indicators
- Security Questioning
- Red Teaming
- Applicability Standard Operating Procedures
