What to expect from our hostile environment close protection course
Orchid Risk’s hostile environment close protection courses are split into two training days which focus on weapons and then strategy. On the first day you can expect to be talked through using different weapons including the stripping, cleaning and assembly of a variety of weapons.
Our experienced training staff for hostile environment close protection courses will then tech the best safe handling techniques and then conduct tests and drills to assess your competency. You can expect to be trained with multiple semi-automatic weapons to shoot from multiple positions.
Day two of our hostile environment close protection course focuses on putting you in simulated situations to test your responses. This will include talking you through security and situation awareness followed by a test of your tactical mobility during an anti-ambush drill and many others.
All of our hostile environment close protection courses take place in Poole, Dorset and are a fantastic way to really hone in on a particular skills-set which will improve the safety of your business and the ability for your operative to protect their assigned client.
