Close Protection Training

World leading training by a World leading operational company

At Phoenix, we are committed to setting new high standards in the Private Security Industry and we believe this starts with the quality of training we provide.

With this at the very forefront of everything we do, we have strived to create the most realistic and professional close protection training experience found on the market today. Although you will achieve the Level 3 Working as a Close Protection Operative Course, in addition to this, you have options of achieving 11 globally recognised qualifications and covering everything from unarmed combat and evasive driving to live firearm training and advanced covert surveillance techniques, our Close Protection Course goes above and beyond the industry standard to prepare you for anything the job might throw at you.

Phoenix are honoured to accept Enhanced Learning Credits from former and serving members of the armed forces. Our Level 3 Working as a Close Protection Operative Course only is approved by the ELCAS scheme. All additional components charges for ELCAS customers are contributed by Phoenix as our gesture and honour for their service. Non-ELCAS customers will be charged for the additional components.

Each aspect of our training features practical teaching – including realistic live operations – as well as theory-based classes, to keep you fully engaged and to get you acclimatised to the fast-paced reality of life as a close protection officer. Taking place over 16 days, our SIA close protection courses will not only prepare you to completely understand and meet the expectations of all clientele under an array of different environments and scenarios, but will also ensure you stand out to potential private security employers and individual clients as an exceptional and elite close protection officer.

Although the industry standard requirement is to achieve the minimum ‘First Aid at Work’, we don’t believe that the basic standard is enough to treat your principal should a medical emergency arise.
