Additional Components

Whilst our Level 3 Close Protection course is unrivalled within the industry with comprehensive and unparalleled resources, real life experiences and utilisation of live environments, we do recognise the need for additional training to set you further ahead of your competition in the Close Protection industry.

This consists of advanced and evasive driving, unarmed combat, firearms and a plethora of first aid courses, all designed and combined in a bundled package including additional Phoenix certification upon completion.
