Firearm Training

Before any officer is issued with a firearm they must have sat and passed the precept examination, which is administered by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. After obtaining the precept, the officer then undergoes an intensive firearm training course.  Upon successful completion, the Company then applies for a Firearm Userís Employees Certificate (FUEC), which authorises the officer to carry a licensed firearm.

Heller conducts on-going training for its FUEC officers to ensure correct procedures and usage are always foremost in the officerís mind. Each officer is scheduled for refresher firearm training every six months.


Driver Training

The Company selects drivers from among itís existing employees. Those employees who are selected to drive Company vehicles must first have a valid Trinidad and Tobago driverís license. These individuals are then given a practical driving examination, so that the Company is assured that the individual is a competent driver. In addition the driver must complete a defensive driving program.
