The Close Protection course covers all key competencies mandatory for Close Protection Operations, utilising The-Training-Wing’s many years of combined Close Protection and Security Industry experience.

A combination of classroom and realistic practical scenario exercises, conducted in a real-time environment, will give all course participants an in-depth understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a Close Protection Operative. This course is a pass or fail course and this will be determined by the awarding body. Students will gradually progress from classroom-based training and lectures through to practice drills / exercises, and then onto real-time life scenarios.

Students will be expected to work outside of normal working hours in order to conduct report writing, route reconnaissance, driving and familiarisation skills.
