IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO RAISE STANDARDS IN CLOSE PROTECTION TRAINING BUT ENSURE IT'S COMMERCIALLY VIABLE?

With so much discussion on raising standards in close protection training, it's really easy to put a gold standard course forward but is it really possible to do in a commercially viable way. If not then what do you prioritise and how do you provide and regulate the continuation training?

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your input as always.

I think one of the great points you make is that you could improve standards without it meaning extra cost, thus reducing profits, just by regulation on entry ages, driving licence requirements and the SIA actually regulating training providers to ensure that they are at least meeting their minimum standards and not cutting even more corners on what is already a syllabus which is dubilously fit for purpose.
