Hostile Environment Close Protection Course

Crossing any border in Iraq, Afghanistan or any other war zone constitutes active service as soon as you cross the border. You don''t have time to train with foreign weapons or tactical field firing in country. To bridge this operational deficit Ronin Concepts has constructed a Hostile Environment Close Protection course that caters for students who are intent on employment in hostile environments. Our training strategies endeavour to maintain an effective balance between theoretical and practical training ensuring the development of a confident competent Close Protection operative. This is achieved by the utilisation of skills learned on this course.

  • Comprehensive and innovative general Close Protection skills instruction both theoretical and practical. Skills and tactical procedures in line with SIA criteria/core competencies in conjunction with realistic scenarios and practice. Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award for Working as a Close Protection Operative Within the Private Security Industry is awarded to successful students.  This course is Edexcel accredited.
  • Driver training. A good insight in to the preparation,  control and techniques of low profile tactical driving, vehicle escort drills, convoy procedures, contact drills and vehicle navigation. 
  • Surveillance/counter surveillance.  Counter surveillance techniques are critical in the pre-emption of potentially lethal situations.  Proactive measures to detect and counter surveillance are taught and practiced. 
  • Foreign weapons training (dry).  Weapons covered are Chinese / Russian AK47 and Glock 19 pistols. Firing drills and tactics are practiced extensively. 
  • Full bore tactical field firing (live).  This is carried out in Poland utilising an indoor pistol range and unique drive-in ranges where students having practiced vehicle contact drills extensively in Hereford now have the opportunity to practice live.  Realistic battle handling lessons are practiced and tactical scenarios developed.  Weapons covered are the Glock 19 pistol, AK47, HK MP5 and US M4. Successful students are awarded a Weapon Handling Competency Registered Certificate valid for 3 years. 
  • Medical trauma management. A comprehensive medical package designed for Close Protection operatives working in hostile environments. The course is demanding and realistic.
