We have been conducting specialist close personal protection courses of instruction for decades. Our specialist Close personal protection courses of instruction are open to responsible adults. There are as many corporate's and combative enthusiasts as those pursuing close protection careers on courses.

Course participants include company directors and traveling corporates that are not in a position to to have close protection specialists on the payroll and want to learn all the skills to make themselves their staff family and friends as safe as possible under their protection.

Individuals intending to travel extensively internationally also undertake our specialist basic entry-level course of instruction.

We export our CPP courses to Thailand our hub global country to reduce the travel duration and costs in comparison to attending courses at our New Zealand HQ and also to ensure courses are conducted in a country where English is not the primary language. This adds to the training exercises benefits in relation to exposure to close protection requirements in a foreign environment.
