  • About the Anti-Kidnap and Targeting Indication (AKTI) Training Course

    In today’s dynamic and sometimes high-risk environment, ensuring the safety of individuals is of paramount importance. At Special Projects Group, we recognise the need for specialised training to counteract the threats of kidnap and targeting incidents. Our Anti-Kidnap and Targeting Indication (AKTI) Training is designed to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills required to identify, mitigate, and respond effectively to potential risks.

    Victims of kidnap and ransom across the globe can be profiled and targeted for any varied number of reasons such as their personal wealth/income, nationality, religion, employer or line of work. Kidnap is a tool used frequently to raise funds for illegal activities and to intimidate both foreign and domestic workers in High-Risk Areas (HRA)
