Live Firearms Training

Set sights on your future

At Phoenix, we take pride in the fact that we’re the only close protection training provider that offers live firearm training here in the UK. A crucial skill for any expertly-trained close protection officer, our industry-renowned firearms training will not only prepare you to exceed the expectations of all clientele in an array of different environments and scenarios, but it will also ensure you stand out to potential private security employers and individual clients as a well-rounded and exceptionally well-trained elite CPO.

In the close protection services industry, clients demand the best. While training in areas such as basic first aid, advanced driving and unarmed combat is essential and universal for all CPOs operating at home and abroad, one area that is often neglected by UK-based close protection courses is live firearm training. This skill oversight can impede your career in the industry – particularly if you’re looking to operate abroad.

Covering everything from the basic principles of marksmanship and detailed weapons briefs to immersive drills involving shooting from various positions and effective targeting, our live firearm training goes above and beyond to ensure you are prepared for any armed scenario you may face as a CPO.

Taught by industry leading experts, our firearms training is completely UK-based and can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of our comprehensive close protection training course.
