It is essential when working in the security industry that you undergo specified training programmes that result in the recognised qualifications you will need for all aspects of security. Individuals applying for a SIA licence must prove that they are properly qualified to do their job with the particular set of skills needed for the vastly expanding security industry. This results in a professional and capable workforce, equipped with the correct abilities for every aspect of security.
Close Protection is the pinnacle of the private Security Industry and for the candidates who achieve this qualification and secure their SIA Licence, a whole new world of exciting career opportunities will open up for them.
The role of a Close Protection Operative or Bodyguard is as varied as it is challenging. Operatives can find themselves protecting celebrities, politicians, visiting dignitaries, diplomats, sports stars and even royalty. Close Protection Operatives often need to deal with high amounts of pressure and can potentially encounter dangerous situations that require in-depth knowledge and training.
To allow ample time to teach the broad range of skills required, the Close Protection course runs over 16 days and consists of three units:
1. Working in the Private Security Industry.
2. Working as a Close Protection Operative.
3. Conflict Management
In addition to the minimum course content required by the SIA, our course also includes the following elements at no additional cost:
