PerpetuityARC Training, part of the Linx International Group has launched an Advanced Close Protection course, designed for those who have already gained their SIA or equivalent license. This highly practical course provides close protection operatives with an advanced understanding of close protection protocols, including situational awareness, risk management and unarmed conflict management.

During the five-day course, which will take place in Oxford, participants will be placed in real-life scenarios, taught how to identify threats through enhanced situational awareness and provided with the tools to better prepare for and provide close protection in any given situation or environment. Head of Sales at PerpetuityARC Training, Sarah Hayward explains: This is a hands-on, best-practice course which involves the strategic planning, preparation and execution of an elite close protection service.
