People First


We were recently fortunate to be asked to deliver a bespoke and targeted training package on behalf of the Military.  PENCARI Training quickly identified that the team’s we were training had previously received a plethora of predominantly classroom based training, along with a considerable amount of ‘gifted’ equipment and technology. Although these previous initiatives were well intended, we weren’t convinced that this was the best approach. So we focused our attention on what we believe is the most important asset in any Unit or team, regardless of that team being from a military, law enforcement or even NGO background – the individual.

The Human Element is our first pillar of training ethos putting the person first. Improving that individual and ensuring that they can be the very best that they can be, ultimately enhancing the overall team’s capability and preventing what we commonly see as an over reliance on technology…..

PENCARI Training achieve ISO 9001:2015 Certification


Dorset based defence and security training provider has achieved certification to the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 standard, establishing it as one of the leaders in its field.


This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading Certification Body, and demonstrates PENCARI’s commitment to customer service and quality training delivery.

PENCARI Training has now earned the right to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau quality shield and ISO 9001:2015 logo to demonstrate its conformance to the standard.

ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.

PENCARI has shown they have good service reliability and process controls, which means lower costs for its customers!

PENCARI’s Founding Director, Dean Williams said, “we’re particularly pleased to have achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification as it underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality training delivery. Not many customers get to see their training provider’s ‘back office’ activities. This recognition demonstrates that we can provide a quality solution from initial needs analysis to training delivery and consultancy and beyond”.

The benefits of certification to ISO 9001 include:

  • Streamlining an organisation’s procedures;
  • Bringing consistency to an organisation’s service delivery;
  • Reducing cost and rework;
  • Improving an organisation’s management practices;
  • Enhanced status;
  • Competitive advantage;
  • Lower insurance premiums.

The Human Factor



PENCARI training recently delivered a CIED Sign Awareness course to operators within both the Norwegian Army and the USMC – the photo shows the importance of studying and understanding how “sign” ages, allowing operators to reach an understanding on what is relevant to an IED emplacement and what might be normal pattern of life – great course and a lot of fun working with these real Vikings!

IED Awareness/identification IS NOT all about technology – its about the Human Factor. The guys and girls who function 24/7 in all weather conditions without the need for a battery change or a replacement part…..

Law Enforcement – Pursuit IX Tracking


We were recently privileged to deliver our Law Enforcement Pursuit IX Tracking training to the Netherlands Police Department. They now have a capability that allows them to identify the “action indicators” attributed to criminal or terrorist activity and if required, actively and offensively pursue in all environments in order to successfully arrest or interdict. Great people, who are out there on the streets keeping us safe 24/7.

Thank you and stay safe.


Bold as Lions-Combat Tracking IX



We wanted to share with you the amazing capability that is Combat Tracking Information Exploitation (CTIX). Set in a fictional country, a Combat Tracking Team are tasked to deploy and respond to a realistic incident. This fast paced action movie shows the team arriving at the incident site, Casting for “Sign” and gaining valuable intelligence and information about their Quarry/Target. The team rapidly transition to an offensive posture and conduct a breathtaking pursuit………

“The wicked flee when none pursueth but the righteous are as bold as a lion” – Proverbs 28:1

Search & Rescue Tracking (SART)

We have just had a great weekend delivering Search & Rescue Training to members of the UK SAR community. Training was delivered in a mixture of sand, grassland and ancient woodland and consisted of 2 very busy days!


Trying to get the rudiments of Tracking across in 2 days is a big ask however, PENCARI recognised the importance of what these SAR volunteers do. Come rain or shine, summer or winter these guys are out there searching for children, walkers or runners and even mentally disturbed persons possibly suffering from the debilitating effects of Alzheimers who have become disorientated or lost. These teams work alongside Police Search teams and on occasion are asked to assist with the location of the deceased, offering their time and energy to save and preserve life every day of the year without pay and for little or no recognition. Well we couldn’t say no could we…


Our aim was to leave them with a basic understanding of Sign, how to interpret it and recognise it and use it to eliminate openings encountered. This was a crucial part of the training, as many of our SAR teams within the UK will use dogs to Scent Track however, if a change of direction is encountered the importance of recognising Sign consistent to the time frame of the missing person is crucial and can increase the overall speed of the search. With every minute potentially making the difference between life and death, the link between Visual and Scent Tracking and the way that both skills merge could make the difference to a successful outcome or one of failure!
