History of European Security Academy
ESA Training center
The training center of the European Security Academy covers an area of 150 hectares and is situated among the environmentally sound and clean forests and lakes. The ESA training center comprises the following :
Hotel and leisure facilities with catering service
One may find a variety of accommodation in the hotel and leisure facilities. The choice is between attractive guest rooms in the authentic nineteenth century windmill and group rooms, which reflect the old Polish style. Our catering offer includes the traditional local cuisine based on the eco products from the center’s area. The outdoor dining area on the lakeside forms an additional attraction. One can make unlimited use of the barbecue fire beds, smoke chamber and camp fire.
Lecture rooms have a full interactive educational base, which consists of multimedia projectors, professional audio-visual systems, monitors and analog/digital cams, portable computers, base stations and interactive visual charts. The systems, which are part of this base, allow for observation of individual places, implementation of training, active simulations and actions in real time. The lecture rooms enable us to conduct training for several groups at the same time.
Enclosed tactical firing range
Enclosed tactical firing range – it is an attested, multi-post training facility used in firing practice at the advanced level. It possesses its own special system of recording and conveying pictures from the firing range and the computer-controlled set of changing mobile firing screens. It is equipped with professional targets, which facilitate the detailed anatomical and physiological control of the striking areas. It has a special system of disturbing the eye-shot and influencing the perception and awareness of those firing. The full-surface backstop is completed by the system of crowd simulation, which makes the fire running field more real. This firing range meets the rigorous safety norms and provides the opportunity to conduct extremely realistic firing training sessions. It has been recognized as the best facility of the sort nationwide.
Full-size open firing range
Full-size open firing range – the center has an open firing range where one can conduct firing training with handguns, submachine guns, carbines, rifles and shotguns. The firing posts are equipped with shooting ear and eyesight protection and the telemetric systems of shot control. The firing range is equipped with portable stops, which enable to vary the conducted training and to practice different variants of shooting situations. The firing range has its own lighting and sound systems, as well as full equipment, which guarantees the complete safety of conducting the preparation.
A tactical lane with the course used in simulation and shooting from vehicles and in the performance of simulation of tactical and shooting tasks in the open area. It was designed to facilitate the actions of protection teams moving in the protection escort and in protection lines. It provides the simulation of actions by working outdoors with the use of colored simunition. There is a separated part of the center on the territory of the training facilities, which enables us to conduct a tactical task practice, especially the one related to assaults on VIP convoys, assaults on protection teams. It enables us also to present simulation of firing in the situation of fire exchange. It is located in the hutch of the endurance course, which ensures the natural surrounding simulating the scenery of the trap and providing the opportunity of realization of the task in the isolated tactical conditions.
Tactical firing range - kill house
Tactical firing range - kill house - is an advanced shooting facility enabling the use of handguns equipped with FX and CQT simunition. The specially designed training facility makes it possible for the instructors to observe the actions of the course participants in the specially prepared tactical room. The immediate supervision over the training facilitates the real time verification of the operator and the stimulation of proper reactions in the protection team. The layout of the room may be modified at one’s own option with the use of special scenery, which excludes the possibility of performing tasks in the pre-learned rooms. The whole facility is used in training to find solutions to complex tactical situations. It provides the opportunity of training in realistic tactical scenarios.
Specialist assault course – based on the example of training centers for shock and landing forces, a special assault course has been designed. This course checks the preparation in terms of able-bodiedness and efficiency as well as psychological predispositions when making extreme effort. It consists of dozen-odd obstacles distributed on the hilly and swampy terrain. In order to run through these, the operator needs to have had a lot of preparation and a high-level motor and movement efficiency. The test also checks the strength and able-bodiedness as well as pain adaptation abilities and acting in the circumstances of the stress caused by the time which is constantly running out. The course is designed in the way which tests the operator’s psychological and physical predispositions and his/her ability to act in extreme conditions on the battle field. It is one of the most demanding courses of the sort in Poland. It is used to recruit and verify the abilities of soldiers and police officers which are required for work in special forces.
The first aid (pre-medical) training facilities
The first aid (pre-medical) training facilities – thanks to the perfect training base and, above all, to the specialist equipment which meets the most rigorous world standards, we organize the first aid (pre-medical) training sessions on both basic and advanced levels. Additionally, the center’s instructors conduct the training courses for the qualified protection personnel in paramedical actions for the teams of VIP personal control. These training courses include the work with the equipment used by the agents of DELTA EXECUTIVE PROTECTION; they also provide instruction on the procedures and algorithms of behavior in the situations close to the loss of health or life. The center’s instructors are qualified paramedics and certified first-aiders.
The life guard and diving center
The life guard and diving center – within the area of the center, there is a deep lake which is rich in biota. In the immediate neighborhood of the center there are full-size water reservoirs which facilitate the complete water and depth training together with motor-boat training. On the territory of the base there is a possibility of running a training session in lifeguarding. Thanks to the perfect base, apart from the training session in lifeguarding, one may run courses and training sessions in diving in the inland waters. The classes run by the center are coherent with the basic-level diving courses organized by the world’s well-known diving federations.
The off-road course and quad riding field
The off-road course and quad riding field – the center also includes a professional off-road course and quad riding field. The center has a full fleet of four-wheel field vehicles. The surroundings of the center meet the most rigorous norms and requirements of the world’s off-roaders. By way of example, it is worth noting that the center’s instructors have participated in the international car race TRANSSYBERIA RACE. The Porsche Poland team prepared in our center for this back-breaking race and were one of the few which actually finished the whole race. The center runs High Range courses and full-feature courses in operation, riding and driving along off-road trails. An additional attribute of the center are the security ride courses which prepare the participants to run escorts in high-risk countries such as African ones.
