I completed Galahad Associates flagship Close Protection Officer course in March 2015 and would unreservedly recommend it in a heartbeat. The training is progressive and demanding, exceptionally well resourced, with a realistic fusion of hostile environment, executive and celebrity protection training scenarios. Even after eight years military service (including two theatre specific training packages for deployment to Afghanistan) I considered the firearms and medical training in particular to be exceptional.
Only basic theory was taught in the classroom - practical skills were taught on the ground then confirmed and tested through three real time exercises. The culmination was a fast paced four day final exercise in Prague - not many providers offer training at this level. Jamie and his team bring experience, professionalism, passion and some real style.
Galahad Associates prepares you far in excess of the minimum standard required to hold an SIA license; this is not an attendance course - it is demanding, relevant and innovative training. On completion, you may be invited to the Galahad Associates Alumni providing professional networking, whole career industry support, continuation training and professional development.
