Close Protection Training UK

The Leading Choice for Close Protection Courses

If you’re planning on a career in the security sector, it’s important to bear in mind that you need to be fully certified otherwise you could find yourself in a spot of trouble. Here at Orchid Risk, our close protection training UK courses are designed to teach attendees the skills they need to operate both effectively and within the confines of the law.

Our SIA close protection training is delivered by seasoned professionals who can draw upon a wealth of knowledge and experience from their many years in the field. All our instructors are drawn from specialist units ensuring that you receive the best training possible. What’s more, our courses provide attendees with the relevant SIA (Specifications for Learning and Qualifications for Close Protection Operatives). This ensures that you’re compliant with the Private Security Industry Authority Act 2001.

This is a twelve-day intensive course which will focus on preparing you for a career as a Close Protection Officer (CPO). Our close protection training UK courses will provide you with the knowledge you need to plan, prepare and support any close protection operation. Conflict management within the private security industry is also covered.

As well as our twelve-day course, Orchid Risk also offers other close protection courses too which you can read more about below.

Close Protection Training UK Courses

Fast Track Close Protection Training

This is designed as a refresher course for anyone who has previously completed the Close Protection course. Applicants must already hold an SIA Close Protection licence in order to attend making this a great option for those who have already trained with other organisations. If you’ve trained with Special Air Service Regiment, Royal Military Police Close, Metropolitan Police Royal Protection/ Special Branch or Police National Close Protection, you’ll find this course ticks all the right boxes.

An SIA Close Protection licence must be renewed once every three years. As such, SIA close protection training such as this is essential if you wish to continue operating in the security sector.
