SIA Close Protection Training

Our SIA Close Protection training course combines case studies with military and police skills to give you what we believe to be the most memorable, insightful and comprehensive training course offered anywhere. SkyBridge trainers have many years of extensive operational experience working with VIPs across the globe, allowing them to teach from personal experience and with passion.

SIA Close Protection Training

The training guidelines set by the UK Security Industry Authority (SIA) include the following core competencies:

  • Roles and responsibilities of the close protection operative
  • Threat and risk assessment
  • Surveillance awareness
  • Operational planning
  • Law and legislation
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Close protection team work
  • Reconnaissance
  • Close protection foot techniques
  • Route selection
  • Use of close protection vehicle techniques
  • Search awareness
  • Incidents and dilemmas
  • Venue based security
  • Communication and conflict management skills

At SkyBridge, we know how important presentation and personal qualities are in a close protection officer. So, going beyond the SIA guidelines, our course also covers appropriate dress selection, understanding the distinctions between different categories of VIPs, and how to distinguish nuances of behaviour.
