This is a high intensity course designed to introduce students to the basic Theory and Drills required by a CP operator

 The course consists of both theory and practical sessions, teaching the latest techniques used by CP Operators today, taking into account threat profiles that may be encountered anywhere in the world.

 This is a graded course, with students being assessed on all aspects of their performance, as well as their attitude, aptitude and ability. Students will be expected to work hard and perform both as part of a team and as individuals.

 Students passing this course will be able to work as part of a CP team or as individuals assigned to a principal. They will be able to deal with a number of principal profiles, including business persons, politicians, show business personalities & celebrities etc. The course syllabus includes:

  • Security Theory and Methods
  • Security Surveys and Assessments
  • Security Drills
  • Team and Individual CPO Tactics & Drills
  • Overt and Covert Advance Team Drills
  • “Actions On” Drills: attack, ambush, incident, accident etc.
  • Protocol, dress etc. 
  • Surveillance and Counter-Surveillance
  • Searches
  • Communications
  • Planning & Preparation
  • First Aid*

 As can be seen, unlike many other courses on offer, the course does not include firearms or driver training. This is because, as anyone vaguely familiar with either discipline will confirm, they are subjects requiring a great deal of practice, which is not possible in the time available. In order to ensure that students are not misguided and think they are able to master these skills in a few hours, therefore posing a danger to themselves and others, we concentrate on the basic skills of a CPO and ensure that these are learnt properly. Separate courses are offered on both driving and firearm skills.

* If all candidates on a course can provide documentary evidence of a recognised First Aid Qualification, this time can be dedicated to alternative training
