whether you like it or not, this a threat we all face in today’s world, some more than others, therefore you need to confident in identifying and applying risk reduction measures. We underestimate how many organisations are a threat due to the influence of the media, there are domestic and potential international terrorist organisation’s in all countries and it is imperative that we do not take such threats lightly as the risks may be higher for your principle, not just based on their personal or associates profiling but more so the places they visit or are acquainted to.

this qualification is only for persons who have completed the close protection qualification and are wishing to enhance their careers both in terms or growth and further contract opportunities, any candidate wishing to be team leader or wanting to commence service provision should embrace this qualification as it will part you from the “wannabes” you will be at the top of the pile of job applications and also in a position to justify higher rate of pay.Ultimately we need to accept and appreciate that the security industry is no longer a bus stop in one life or a means to achieve extra cash flow on an ad hoc basis. We in the United Kingdom are paving the way for Europe to embrace such conditions of entry into the field.
