CLOSE PROTECTION TRAINING

ABOUT THE COURSE

The World renowned 21 Day Vanquish Close Protection Training Course is considered one of the best civilian bodyguard courses that exist. It not only covers the basic minimum SIA Level 3 requirements to enable attendees to ascertain their SIA licence, but also includes Topographical Map Reading, The 5 Day Advance Surveillance, The 2 Day Bug Sweeping  and The Counter & Anti Surveillance Courses all written by Michael Chandler, The author of The Real Guide To Surveillance.

 

This course demonstrates how to be an effective CPO whilst utilising covert surveillance skills and gives attendees the ability to protect by exercising intelligence acquisition methods along with traditional security skills and procedures. 

 

From this course, you will gain qualifications which enable you to apply for your SIA Close Protection Licence Private Investigator License (once issued by the SIA), a Diploma in Advanced Surveillance, Bug Sweeping (TSCM) and the a number of First Aid Qualifications.  

VIEW A LIST OF ALL QUALIFICATIONS YOU WILL GAIN 

Our course is application only which means that there is a brief application/ telephone interview process which enables us to ensure that we have the right calibre of people attend. For each course, we receive between 60-100 applications and we only accept between 4-6 applicants. The reason we do this is because Vanquish® Investigation Services and Vanquish® Security Services ONLY recruit from these courses.​

 

We usually hold 2 open days per year where we invite all interested course candidates to our training centres where they will learn about the organisation and how Vanquish® operate, recruitment and the course itself. If you would like to receive an invitation to one of these free events, please either download our brochure by clicking HERE or apply by going to VanquishAcademy.com/apply

 

Courses are held either in London, Manchester or Leeds.

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.
