  2. A 'hostage taking' course? Is that legal?

  4. Taking you one stage further in your Hostage Taking course, we shall now see Razor's McGinty demonstrate the 'Get in the fkcuing car you kahnt' manouvre.
     

  5. Of course its legal if you concent to it!!!

    CP life can be a rewarding life..
    Only after you get qualified!!

    I joined EliteBase on www.proshieldint.com and got on a tier 1 CP detail in Baggers..
    Money is excellent, contacts with other likeminded people even better..

    Ronin course is a winner, Phoenix is a sure bet as well..
    Keep smiling

  7. I would recomend the Ronin course run in SA, It has a firearms course and a practical firat aid course included in it, plus a lot of employers hiring for out here in Baghdad are really impressed with it.
    In the South African PSIRA, which is the equivilent to the U.K. SIA you come away with an A grade security officers certification, which is the highest grade available. A grade B being the minimun you would need in order to start your own security business. since SIA is going to be regulating the bodyguarding industry it is a good course to get yourself setup with. good luck
     
  8. If you are interested in getting into the private security industry, especially the CP / Iraq Escort PSD team side of life, an SIA accredited course is the way to go about it.

    For those new onto the circuit - The reputable employers looking for PSD teams are demanding attendence on a recognised course, Phoenix & Ronin (SA) being at the forefront.

    Before planning a shotgun style CV applications fired out to all security companies, here are a few points to note:

    1. Most of the companies are overwhelmed with emailed applications and loads of good CVs get mixed in with the dross.

    2. Your CV will only be scan read for about 30seconds.

    3. If there isn't a suitable slot for you at the time it's read your CV will be filed and probably overlooked when a slot does come up as someone else's cv wil be top of the heap that day.

    There is a better way: www.xc3.co.uk will host your profile and CV so you dont have to fire off-blind applications. Employers search our database for suitable consultants and contact them directly. The site also has links to reputable training courses.

    But if you are determined to send out the at bulk email remember to make sure you send it BCC. not CC

    All the recruiters knows you're applying to everyone else as well but they do like to think they're special....
     
  9. most of the training companies run a placement service for people who pass the course. there is another excellent course in SA you can find the details at www.psdsa.co.za this goes a bit further than ronin and on the med side you go to a hospital trauma unit. they also run deming courses and tactical survival. the guy who runs it had to use it in iraq after getting bumped they were on the lamb for a few days the instructors are all well qualified and the facilities are second to none, the range package excellent. cost is £4100 for the CP/PSD course. and £5100 for the full course including Tactical parachuting course and the survival course

    hope it helps,

  11. Guys - PSD Training run a great course!

    The yanks on lightfighter just don't like brits, their gungho tactics look great, but they've all watched too many movies!

    PSD Training teaches brit tactics, from the RMP book and others (yeh, u know who I mean)

    The course bridges the gap between normal Close Protection and the high risk work of Iraq, different tactics and ways of working than London!

    How do I know? Because I've been there and done it. The troops get hammered during the drills, its as real as it can get, on a training course.

    I was with ex paras and marines doing drills and it was great, we got daily briefings on real time info from Iraq - which was friggin scary! they don't hold their punches, one guy actually left the course on the 2nd to last day because of what the instructors showed and told us.

    A & S were great instructors, with real experience, they were able to convey their own experiences into the lessons, some of which were classroom work, but mostly drills. I couldn't believe how much was involved, most nights we were up till 2am working. Then they would attack us with simulated rockets and mortars.

    IMHO it is the dogs bollox!

    They have deployed lots of people, to Iraq and other places.

    Have a look at their web site www.psd-training.com it gives tons of info.

    Where am I now? Baghdad
    Who am I working for? None of your business!
    How did I get here? Because I did the their course and they got me the interview!
    Would I recommend it? Without doubt!

    psd-training.com/psd_t...onials.htm - shows testimonials from previous guys, I'm waiting for mine to go up!

    Found this today on their site, it's a new page to me, was not there before I went: psd-training.com/psd-employment.htm - shows companies who have employed their people, I work for one of them

    The doubters keep doubting - the do'ers - just do!

    If you are really interested send me a PM and I'll answer any questions
     
  12. hmmmm
     
  13. Business on the courses must be slow-judging from the 'I've been on this course and it was great etc etc' posts here :roll:
    What's up guys-not enough students signing up for your training school?! :D
     
  14. Is this a commercial thread?
