Unlike conventional close protection courses available in the market the Free2learn course has its usual twist: not only does the Free2Learn close protection course cover the criteria required by the awarding body and SIA but it also incorporates a new advanced methodology for operational training. Free2Learn program has been especially designed by a former member of a security agency possessing a wide range of operational and didactical experiences.
The former member of the security agency works closely with the Free2Learn close protection instructors who deliver an integrated security approach which will help unemployed learners in the real world.
“Training it’s optimising the process by exploiting the available resources in such limited time and carrying out the training as close to reality as possible” said the former member of the security agency.
So far, over 120 learners have successfully completed and passed the FREE Free2Learn close protection course and are now preparing to gain employment in the security sector.
The Free2Learn has dedicated a complete floor to the Close Protection programme, areas have been designed and set up to reflect ‘real life’ scenarios such as a cafe/res taurant area and press conference area allowing students to practice their tactical awareness, positioning and movements.
With these and other facilities such as cars in the private parking area it allows theory to be put into practice at any point of the day.
Furthermore, Free2learn has recently become an accredited First Aid at Work training centre, allowing us to put Close Protection students through realistic medical scenarios prior to being employed in the industry.
Here are some learner comments about the Free2Learn Close Protection course:
“Excellent and unexpected experience throughout the course”
“I feel the course was awesome, you learn so much so quickly, it makes you think on your feet. Even at home we still practice skills we have learnt here. All our trainers have been great, without their knowledge and expertise I think we wouldn’t have been as successful and knowledgeable as we all are now”
