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…..

Multi Environment Training: PENCARI ensure that you receive training in as many differing environments as the training area allows. This ensures that wherever you may be asked to serve you have an understanding of what to look for in that environment and how to adjust your tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP’s) to best suit the threat and the terrain. PENCARI Instructors have the confidence to teach you anywhere and offer you a true Contingency capability.

We understand the loads that you are required to carry (because we too have carried those loads) and the affects that they will have, both on the Team and on the Individual in a fast ‘Pursuit’ style operation.
