Our most popular, intensive 16 day Close Protection course, will not only prepare you to completely understand and meet the expectations of all clientele under an array of different environments and scenarios, but it will also ensure you stand out to potential private security employers and individual clients as an exceptional close protection officer. There is a vigorous interview process for our students upon being accepted on to the course. This is an opportunity for potential students to meet the directing staff, to allow them to assess the students before being accepted onto the course.

You will be trained from the best in the business as our course instructors are former members of U.K. Special Forces, Law Enforcement and highly experienced Executive Protection and Monarchy Protection officers.
