In today’s world, close protection officers need to be capable of operating in a diverse array of environments. From remote and hostile locations through to corporate and executive settings, each presents its own unique challenges. With this in mind Sparta Security Services – one of the most highly recommended close protection training companies in the UK – have developed a specialist course aimed at men and women seeking a career in the close protection industry. Our course will give you practical experience of the conditions in which you could be operating, and equip you with the qualifications and skills that will inspire the confidence of potential employers and their clients.
Conducted at our facility in Hereford, our 16-day course involves both theoretical and practical training.
We thoroughly cover everything from the entry-level basics all the way through to high-level procedures such as physical intervention, first aid and trauma management – competencies that are considered essential by employers in the commercial sector.
By passing our course, you’ll gain an SIA-accredited Certificate in Close Protection, as well as the HABC Level 3 Certificate in Close Protection.
The SSS Close Protection Course has been approved by the MOD for Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) funding.
The MOD’s ELC scheme is an initiative to promote lifelong learning among members of the armed forces, and provides financial support in the form of a single up-front payment in each of a maximum of three separate financial years.
If you are a service leaver, or have left the services within the last 10 years you may be eligible to apply. Please contact your resettlement office or visit the ELCAS website www.enhancedlearningcredits.com for further information.
