Three Special Interest Groups (SIGs) developed training manuals based on European and international minimum standards. The topics of these training manuals are Leadership & Management, Dynamic Security and Managing Difficult Inmates. Within each topic, best practices, a training handbook and a recommendation of the minimum standards have been developed. All reports are available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
A printable version and guidelines to print the training manuals is available here.

Minimum Standards for Dynamic Security Training
This report describes the minimum requirements for education and training on the subject of dynamic security for prison staff. Establishing dynamic security as a concept and working method will affect the entire organization and have an impact on its values, objectives, structure and methods. Setting minimum standards can therefore be very complex. While there are several other topics relevant to dynamic security, this report presents those that are believed to be most fundamental to successfully achieving the proper level of dynamic security and which, at the same time, are based on international rules and guidelines.
