Tactical Firearms Training Provider

This course is designed to prepare individuals for hostile or hazardous environments. It will provide delegates with
the skills needed to identify and counteract potential threats and respond to various aspects of hostile and volatile environments. As weapons are prevalent in these environments, weapon familiarisation and basic firearms training (with live ammunition) are a vital part of the course.

Our HEAT programme is unique in Europe as it has been created by the personnel of three leading specialist units in the UK routinely operating in hostile environments:

  • The Special Air Service (SAS)
  • The Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) – the only UK Special Forces unit employing female operatives
  • The Protection Command (incorporating SO1 Specialist Protection responsible for the personal protection of the      Prime Minister and other public officials under potential terrorist threat, SO14 Royalty Protection responsible for           the British Royal Family worldwide and SO6 Diplomatic Protection Group)

In line with the programme, our instructors are drawn from these units (including female operatives from the SRR), therefore offering our students unsurpassed level of instruction based on personal experiences.
