What Is The Enhanced Topographical and Operational Awareness for Protection Officers and Chauffeurs – Metropolitan London Area Level 2 Course?

The Operational Awareness for Protection Officers and Chauffeurs is the key knowledge-based course for those working in the London UK Circuit as both drivers and protection officers.

 

We make getting your Operational Awareness for Protection Officers and Chauffeurs qualification a simple, stress-free process 

 

This course is aimed at commercial close protection officers, protection drivers and security chauffeurs. 97% of all protection tasks in the UK are based in London. Close protection officers and drivers need enhanced London knowledge to operate effectively.

 

The aim of this course is to equip delegates with professional understanding and a knowledge of working in Central London including the finest hotels, restaurants and clubs likely to be frequented by clients, as well as regulations for working in London.  Clients are likely to expect their protection and driving teams to know their way around and not need instruction from them on where to go or how to book tables at venues that are already full.

 

What Does The Course Include?

The course includes discussion of the operational implications, and soft skills required, for working discretely alongside other clients’ protection teams and members of the public places such as luxury hotels while enabling the building of relationships with service providers, their management and staff.

 

Ultimately this course will equip delegates with the soft skills and London-specific inside knowledge to operate effectively in the capital while understanding specific legal and regulatory requirements for operating in London.
