Security Specilist Training Center "Grampus"

SSTC "Grampus" was established in 2010. At the initiative and under the leadership of Anatoly Smolin, training programs were developed and successfully implemented in many areas of security, primarily in Maritime security.

The main work of the center is focused on training, retraining and certification programs for personnel working in marine security companies abroad and in land missions in high-risk zones. The training program, developed in accordance with the requirements of international standards, has been approved and legalized by the European standards institutes. It reflects current trends and requirements for this category of employees at all levels. Educational-methodical base and logistic, the availability of equipped classes, specialized complexes and polygons allows us to give the necessary knowledge and instill appropriate practical skills to cadets in the shortest possible time. Our programs and methods are based on advanced research and development by leading specialized educational institutions and international training centers in Russia, Belarus, the Czech Republic, Israel, and other countries. We have developed and published our own textbooks, manuals and video applications. The exchange of best practices with foreign colleagues and specialists continues at all stages of the formation of the educational process. We maintained a similar approach to the formation of the educational process when opening new branches of the Center in different countries and when conducting joint courses with foreign training centers.

The basic training course for the operator of the marine protection unit (MPU) and PMSC operators includes theoretical training, practical training, and tactical and special exercises.

The conditions are as close to real as possible. Typical situations are simulated, which allows cadets to quickly adapt to difficult working conditions in different companies and regions. 

Upon completion of training, students who pass the qualifying examination – receive approval certificate for the category of international standard.
