Close Protection Training

What topics are covered by the course?

The experience held by our instructors spans over the full sector of the industry. Led by a Royal Protection Officer with 30 years service who was responsible for the security of Prince Charles and The Queen Mother, he is joined by Celebrity Body Guards looking after such stars as One Direction and Bon Jovi as well as our hostile team working out in the Middle East with major corporations like BP.

The course covers all the required modules of the SIA Close Protection Licence as well and many bonus modules completely free of charge. Our practical mixed with theoretical training ensures you leave our training centre as well rounded Close Protection Officers.

Required Modules Covered;

~ Roles and Responsibilities of the Close Protection Operative
~ Threat and Risk Assessment
~ Surveillance Awareness
~ Operational Planning
~ Law and Legislation
~ Interpersonal Skills
~ Close Protection Teamwork and Briefing
~ Conduct Reconnaissance
~ Close Protection Foot Drills
~ Route Selection
~ Close Protection Journey Management
~ Search Procedures
~ Incident Management
~ Venue Security
~ Avoiding Conflict and Reducing Personal Risk
~ Defusing Conflict
~ Resolving and Learning from Conflict
~ Application of Communication Skills and Conflict Management for Security Guarding and Close Protection

As well as the above required modules we also offer AT NO EXTRA COST the following modules and certifications in:

~ Tactical Firearms Day
~ Security Chauffeur and Driving Day
~ Combat Training

Added to this is the vast practical exercises that we offer on the course giving you a chance to gain experience in many different sizes of teams and scenarios.

One day you may be the team leader looking after a Middle Eastern business man who has been shot at and the next a personal protection officer to a UK Famous Model going to a book signing.

Having worked and still working in the industry we can ensure that our instruction is not only educationally compliant but probably most importantly it is current and REAL.

Our course is a 14 day course based in Coventry in the heart of the West Midlands.

Non Residential = £1399.00
Residential = £1899 (4* Accommodation)

Don't be fooled by courses listing peoples credentials who only turn up for a day. The people listed above with this vast experience are the people who actually teach the course.
