“The instructors are able to hone our skills in a professional manner, relevant to the Canadian Close Protection Field.” 

“Both instructors did a fantastic job of teaching the practical applications of Close Protection and relating it to the real world in Canada.”

“Ken and Michael are excellent instructors.  They cover the theory and physical skills in all aspects of being a Close Protection Specialist.  I especially enjoyed the live field exercises, applying the skills taught while interacting with the public … like real life.  I also enjoyed hearing about their own experiences as Close Protection Specialists.”  

“Learn to be a professional from the professionals!  I truly enjoyed and appreciated this course.  The right mix of theory and practical, and for me, a perfect class size (10).  Both Ken and Michael were personable, professional, and thorough.  Egos were checked at the door! I would highly recommend this training for anyone who considers security as a career.”
