PerpetuityARC Training, part of the Linx International Group, has launched an Advanced Close Protection course. It’s aimed at those who have already gained their SIA or equivalent licence. The course provides close protection operatives with an advanced understanding of close protection protocols, including situational awareness, risk management and unarmed conflict management.

The five-day course, in Oxford, runs first from November 5 to 9. Participants will be placed in real-life scenarios, taught how to identify threats through enhanced situational awareness and provided with the means to better prepare for and provide close protection in any given situation or environment. Head of Sales at PerpetuityARC Training, Sarah Hayward says: “This is a hands-on, best-practice course which involves the strategic planning, preparation and execution of an elite close protection service.”

Ideally, learners will already be working in the sector, but are looking to hone and enhance their skillsets.

· Route planning
· Foot drills
· Behavioural analysis

· Conflict resolution
· Security advanced party (SAP)
· Preparing and working with the principal
