Close Protection Training

Close Protection Training  

The close protection-training course has been devised based on a combination of both Police and Military close protection training courses, together with experience gained within the private sector in relation to close protection. Your instructors have many years of experience in relation to close protection both in hostile & non hostile environments, and hold official teaching qualifications in relation to the subject matter.

The course is run over a 14 or 25 day training periods (advanced course). The training involves both classroom theory input, together with practical training scenarios. The student initially is led through the theory of the specific lesson within the classroom environment; this is then reinforced by way of practical training scenarios where the students put the theory into practice. 

The students are assessed by way of question and answer during the classroom sessions, together with assessment during practical training scenarios. The final assessment of the student, is both theory based with a written examination and on a practical front, by way of a final exercise in which the students set up and run a close protection operation.

The course will contain a minimum of 3 live exercises, which are planned and executed by the students based on the information given. We take pride in the fact that our courses are run in a "Real World" environment, preparing you for the ups and downs of your new career.

24 hr support is available to the students either as a group or individually from the instructors during the course.

The course conforms to the content as required by the SIA regulations UK, in respect to National University Occupational Standard in relation to close protection training. This qualification is recognized in over 70 countries as approved training.
