Why Get Licensed?

Hundreds of our customers have successfully completed Close Protection training and gained a Close Protection SIA Licence. 

Close Protection is the pinnacle of the private Security Industry and for the candidates who achieve this qualification and secure their SIA Licence, a whole new world of exciting career opportunities will open up for them.

The role of a Close Protection Operative or Bodyguard is as varied as it is challenging. Operatives can find themselves protecting celebrities, politicians, visiting dignitaries, diplomats, sports stars and even royalty. Close Protection Operatives often need to deal with high amounts of pressure and can potentially encounter dangerous situations that require in-depth knowledge and training.

Close Protection

About the course:

Being a Close Protection Officer can be extremely demanding and requires in-depth knowledge and training. This means the Close Protection training course covers a broad range of skills, from threat assessment, operational planning and reconnaissance, to vehicle techniques, search procedures and close protection teamwork.

To allow ample time to teach the broad range of skills required, the Close Protection course runs over 16 days and consists of three units:

1. Working in the Private Security Industry.
2. Working as a Close Protection Operative.
3. Conflict Management

In addition to the minimum course content required by the SIA, our course also includes the following elements at no additional cost:

1. First Aid at Work + Defibrillator Training 

2. Evasive Driving and/or Convoy Driving

3. Introduction to Short Firearms

4. Close Combat Training

5. Anti Ambush Training

6. Accommodation

Our courses are packed with theory and practical activities to keep you engaged throughout the course. The training is intense and some exercises will finish late therefore candidates must be prepared for a demanding period of instruction. We intentionally make the course fast paced to fully prepare candidates for the reality of life as a Close Protection Operative.

We understand that examinations can be a daunting prospect but we assure you that there is no need to worry. Everything you need to know for the examination is covered in the Close Protection training course and your expert instructor will fully prepare you for success in the tests. Our pass rates are some of the highest in the business thanks to the highly experienced instructors and the quality of the training courses.

At Get Licensed you will find Close Protection training at various locations in London.
