Close Protection Course – Liverpool


Please speak to the office for further information and to register an interest.

GSTS offer a 18-day intensive training course aimed at anyone wishing to work in this specialist area of the security industry.

Course numbers are kept to a minimum to provide students with the best possible conditions enabling more one-to-one tuition.

There are many practical and scenario based modules within the course and therefore a certain level of fitness is needed but you don’t have to be a decathlete. Our courses are attended by people from various backgrounds and from across the world.

Our Instructors have extensive experience in this specialist sector, not only as qualified and experienced instructors but as operatives in the field. They are always aware of the changing circumstances that face Close Protection operatives and update the course curriculum when needed; this also applies to new threat levels and technology which plays a major role in a CPO’s brief.

Funding is available for ex-service personnel, subject to criteria.

The cost of the course is £1,995.00
