15 DAY CLOSE PROTECTION TRAINING

This 15 day course covers the minimum requirements in order for you to qualify for the SIA Close Protection Licence. It is part of The Vanquish 21 Day Close Protection Course but without the surveillance, bug sweeping and counter surveillance aspects of it.

 

Passing this course will grant you eligibility to work for Vanquish Security but not Vanquish Investigation Services or Vanquish Executive Travel (AKA Chauffeur.London). However, you can progress to these other aspects later on in your career should you decide to work for us.

The reason that this course exists is purely to provide operatives to both Vanquish® Security Services and Vanquish® Investigation Services which is exactly why there is an application process (please see below). Because those two companies only want the best operatives to represent them to their international client base, you must first fill in a brief application form, and respond to questions which will be asked by email and verbally over the telephone. 

For each course, we turn down at least 60 people. This means that we are literally missing out on 60 (on average) times the amount that we charge for the course. Why? Because we aren't here to make money, we are here to provide operatives to the security company and the investigation company.

APPLICATION ONLY

The Vanquish® Close Protection course is the World's first "Application Only" Close Protection Training Course. The reason for this is because as of 6th August 2016, our sister company (Vanquish Security) will not recruit anyone unless they have successfully passed one of our courses.

Counter & Anti Surveillance

 

Because most attacks are planned in advance, it is important that any bodyguard has the ability to establish whether they and/ or their principle are being followed. 

 

This 3 Day Course is a fine example of the way that Vanquish Security & Investigation Consultants operate. It became a course in it's own right due to the high demands of course attendees from the 5 Day Advanced Surveillance Course asking to learn more about Counter & Anti Surveillance as, according to most, it was the most interesting aspect of the course.

 

This course involves a great combination of theory & practical with the final assessment involving a real life scenario using actors and covert communications. 

Advanced Surveillance

 

The 5 Day Advanced Surveillance Course was initially written to train current security staff of Vanquish Security to enable them to conduct covert surveillance ops to the high standards set out by the company.

 

Word spread quickly and before we knew it, Vanquish had set up a special training division, later to become Vanquish Training Academy, to take on all applicants who wanted to attend the highly demanding course. 

 

Michael Chandler who wrote the course, later went on to publish The Real Guide to Surveillance which sells to aspiring security & surveillance operatives World Wide. 

 

Although Michael has stepped down as course instructor, people still come from all over the globe to attend.

Bug Sweeping

 

Also written by Michael Chandler, this course was set up to train operatives on an international scale, the art of Bug Sweeping also known as, Technical Surveillance Counter Measures or TSCM. 

 

TSCM is a skill set that not all Bodyguards can boast but is a very useful one to have. Most attacks are planned and therefore, a principle is very likely to be monitored in one way or another which is why electronic monitoring or Technical Surveillance, should be something that a modern day bodyguard is able to detect.

 

This is a 2 day course which is becoming very popular and is incorporated into the 21 Day Vanquish Close Protection Course.
