This valuable course is designed for everyone in your organization, from your receptionist to boardroom executives and from shop floor assistants to security personnel.
Being security conscious means recognising and understanding the potential for individuals deliberately or inadvertently to steal, damage, or misuse the data stored within your company’s computer systems and throughout your organization. It therefore is prudent to secure the assets of the institution (information, physical, and personal) by trying to prevent such a potentially damaging incursion. Awareness of potential threats and emergencies is the first step to developing a great security culture.
2. Close Protection Training
The requirements for the statutory licensing of a security professional to work in Close Protection services is governed by the country or state of operational activities. In all cases it is necessary for the candidate to be trained comprehensively to a high level of competency in a wide range of security activities and to be certified in Close Protection (Bodyguard) or front line duties by an approved and recognised training organisation.
14Intelligence training teams can provide the necessary courses to allow a candidate the opportunity to reach and surpass the required competencies for certification or licensing within their regions of operation.
Candidates must possess and be able to demonstrate a good level of fitness and ability prior to commencing the course. The required knowledge and competency with and around firearms may require additional training. Excellent professional driving skills can be acquired with experience and expert direction, so a driving licence is a necessity. Modern technology must be mastered including IT, radio and other communications platforms and computer literacy is essential in the modern era. A recognised first aid qualification is mandatory for further progression and recognised skills in communication, mediation and conflict management are necessary or must be acquired.
Such requirements may often suit former military or police candidates who already have training and expertise in martial arts, weapons, strategy, tactics and intelligence though every candidate is an individual and is assessed as such during course selection.
Candidates will be required to complete a fitness assessment to proceed to course placement.

5. Maritime Protection Training
The threat of piracy or armed robbery against merchant and leisure vessels has been of concern since the early 1980s with the highest risk areas since 2005 being the waters off Somalia, the Indian ocean, west and central Africa. The International Maritime organisation has recognised the value of Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel (PCASP) and has recommended their use in high risk areas and for high value cargos .
Training and certification in this highly specialised area requires minimum mandatory training STCW-95 (Standards for Training Certification and Watchkeeping) required by the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) signatories which includes Basic First Aid, Basic Firefighting, Personal Safety and personal survival.
Anti-piracy training follows Best Management Practices (BMP-5) for high risk areas and includes reporting, threat and risk assessments, vessel hardening, crew training and vigilance, observation and lookout, passive and active defence measures and emergency procedures.
Our training programme is delivered by highly skilled and experienced maritime security operatives and encompasses proficiencies in weapon handling skills and marksmanship, situational strategies and scenarios, the use of on board non-lethal deterrents and the graded escalation of responses for threat neutralisation.
Training also includes security team organisation and duties, an overview of international regulations pertaining to the carriage and stowage of forearms at sea and in port, the required communications with coastal and state authorities and considers the possible strategies and recommendations for graded ‘citadel’ defence or if the vessel is taken if a Kidnap and Ransom (K&R) situation escalates.
The increasing use of military grade weapons by attackers may require the use of lethal deterrents by maritime security personnel.
