ARG came highly recommended by a friend who had previously completed this course. I liked the small number that Paul said the course was limited to so that each individual candidate could gain the maximum amount of learning experience.
As stated at the initial interview, Paul said that it would be "20 long hard days". They definitely were, but 20 long, hard and enjoyable days. The course exceeded all my expectations as to what a Close Protection course would involve.
The ARG Team are very highly experienced and professional in their respective fields and methods of teaching. A lot of information was conveyed to candidates, but done so progressively in order that we could build on our skills and drills effectively.
There was a good balance between classroom-based teaching and practical work which enabled us to put theory into practice on a daily basis.
Although the whole of the course was challenging, regular debriefs and support from the instructors enabled candidates to understand what was required in order to make the maximum amount of progress.
I highly recommend this course as an excellent learning opportunity and I will be undertaking further courses with ARG in the future.
