THE BASICS OF VIP CLOSE PROTECTION – 8 DAYS

Our trainers have provided defensive services in both mildly and highly dangerous environments all over the world for over 10 years. This allows us to offer a diverse and essential training package that is backed up by the years of experience we have gained on all levels in the real world, whilst providing close protection. This course includes the complete basics of VIP close protection with the emphasis on preventing the injury of the protected individual. The participants will work as part of a team and will practise all roles in order to understand and see through all aspects of close protection. This course requires all participants to commit entirely, the trainings will last longer than 8 hours per day and planning and preparation phases can last up to the late evening hours.

We designed this introductory course for people with no or little military or any other special experience. During this 8-day course our clients will develop greater confidence and can be sure that they will gain the necessary skills to overcome difficult situations when VIP’s and their surroundings are endangered. The participants of this extended course can learn and practice the tactical methods of VIP close protection from trainers who have real life experience. We would like to emphasise that it is not possible to review or learn all aspects of the thematics of close protection within 8 days, but we are committed to show our clients the most that is possible with trainers who didn’t just complete theoretical training. Our trustworthiness and reliability is proven by their authentic professional experience and the fact that they are alive! The participants will gain knowledge they cannot learn anywhere else. The teams will be formed of 6-15 (ideally 12) people who are matched to develop confidence, knowledge and practical experience during the 8 days in order to be able to protect themselves and others around them in difficult situations, areas of military operations and criminal environments.
