  1. hi guys
    i left the army 5 months ago did plumbing for my resettlement course. thing is i wish id chose a close protection course as rumour control
    says they get paid up to 20k dollars for 6 weeks work i was intending to go and fork out 3500 quid for the c.p course and another 1200 for the firearms course, do any of you guys know if it would be hard to get employment if i did these courses,or do the companys out there like armour group,aegis and olive only take on ex S.F. and these course are just a money making scam

    i dont want to fork out nearly 5k and not be able to get a job

  2. Try armour group mate , not a career so ive been told but the money
    is there now , get it whilst the work is there .
  3. many thanks
  4. Yeah, average wage is a bit low at minimum of £5000 a day.

    Most blokes are on more money than Richard Branson, Prince Charles and the Barclay Brothers combined but, you need a droopy moustache (compulsory), a pair of Ray Ban aviator sunglasses and you need to have a CV which mentions the word 'special' at least 23 times.

    You also need to have done at least a few 'wet' jobs with 49.

    Good luck and good Walting. Oh, and by the way..........I had a vewry vewry good fwend of mine in Wome called Bwian.
