INTRO TO TACTICAL & ADVANCED SECURITY LEVEL COURSES

Intro to Close Protection Training (awareness)
(This is an intro course that introduces Tactical Security Training and briefly touches most areas)

Course length (1 day, at least 8 hours minimum)

Most people’s perception of a body guard is of a burly suit clad minder pushing aside crowds and blocking the paparazzi
from coming into contact with their pampered celebrity clients.

However there is a more dangerous side to this adrenaline packed profession. The role of the armed body guard is based
on courage, team work and dedication to duty.

At Northern Firearms Training Academy our mission is to highlight and teach you some of these key skills. In a hostile
environment you need to be able to keep your calm, rely on your training; keep yourself, the VIP and your team alive.
When the bullets are flying and the insurgents want your head on a plate, throw smoke look for an escape route and put
down fire. Your VIP is life dependent on your professionalism and speed to keep them alive.

The day will cover a number of essential armed body guarding disciplines such as:

Vehicle Extraction Tactics (Armed Body Guards need to use cars and vehicles get the VIP from A to B. Learn from our
team of experts how to get yourself out of a tight spot).

Armed Body Guard Drills (Move in formation keep your eyes peeled as you escort your VIP through a hostile environment).

Weapon Handling (you will get the chance to handle a Glock semi-automatic pistol and M4 Carbine [or equivalent]) and an
added bonus anti-personnel fragmentation grenade handling drills.

Close Quarter Battle (This exercise allows you to put the weapon handling and foot movement together using rifles, take
your VIP through our purpose built ranges. Be prepared to deal with any eventuality, a situation can turn from the benign to
hostile in seconds)

Actions On (what to do when all hell breaks loose)

Break Out Tactics and Anti-Ambush Drills (learn then practice getting yourself out of a tricky situation put down a smoke
screen to mask your movement, get the VIP into cover and put down controlled accurate automatic rifle fire).

Close Quarter Combat Skills (unarmed combat, this activity sorts out the men from the boys)


ON ARRIVAL

On arrival you will be asked to read and then sign a safety waiver. We need to know that you know what’s going on. You
will be then issued with a hard cap, safety goggles, gloves and a set of body armour.

Once this is done you will have a briefing from our chief instructor followed by a training film highlighting what the day has
in store for you.

The morning will consist of a number of training lessons followed by a 30 minute lunch break.

After lunch we will continue with additional training periods followed by a mission briefing and FTX (final test exercise).

Don’t worry there will be additional breaks to have a smoke or a beverage.

All of the training will be explained to you.

The team at Northern Firearms Training Academy have extensive knowledge on all aspects of this experience so will
deliver highly refined training before you deploy in an adrenaline fueled mission as both allies and enemy. If you have ever
fancied yourself as a bodyguard, this experience will let you know if you have what it takes to pull it off.

Northern Security Security's Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) course is designed to meet the
requirements for companies, SOPs, NGOs and individuals working in the challenging and hostile environments posed by
the security environment of the 21st Century. Recognizing the facts that every situation is different and security
requirements can change within a very short time period Northern Security's HEAT courses are built around core
principles that are placed within a flexible training programme.

The Aim of the course is to expose delegates to the situations and predicaments they could encounter in hostile
environments, initially in classroom situations and then progressing to practical scenarios that will test both their self
reliance as individuals and team work in small groups.

The course commences with a scene setting presentation that looks at the current threats in the world today, how they
have evolved and how they could affect course delegates. This is followed by a comprehensive medical training package
that will prepare delegates to deal with a number of medical emergencies either independently or as members of a small
team. The course then moves onto the core Hostile Environment presentations and practical scenarios that include
planning and self sufficiency, weapon and mine awareness, dealing with IED situations, map reading, travel by vehicle and
air, conflict resolution and avoiding kidnap and hostage situations. The course culminates on the final day with a situation
awareness exercise that will practice and test the techniques and procedures that have been taught throughout the course.

The training is delivered by instructors who have operated in a multitude of world-wide hostile environments and
situations. The course is structured to ensure that all information is timely and relevant with well balanced periods of both
lecture room presentations and practical training exercises.

wheel drive, both on and off road. The courses vary in length and are geared towards the client's area where they
employed.

medium to high risk. They are aimed at increasing a driver’s awareness in a protective motoring role. Other specialist

gained from years of operational experience.  It is ideal for those seeking to pursue a career in armed Close Protection, the
Hostile CP world or Maritime security.

The Northern Security TFA/CQB course is designed around the Special Forces CQB shooting syllabus.  Course delegates
conduct training using both the Glock 17 pistol and varients of the AR15 assault rifle.  The training is progressive with the
course commencing with dry drills and training before moving rapidly onto live firing using both weapons individually and
quickly progressing onto duel weapon shoots and stoppage drills.  The course culminates with CQB contact drills, vehicle
anti ambush drills and vehicle borne VIP extraction drills.

The Northern Security TFA/CQB training staff are all former members of the Special Forces, US Military, and Police officer
trainers who are qualified not only by dint of service and qualifications but with experience gained through numerous
training and operational deployments.  The course has been developed to ensure delegates receive the very best training,
no corners are cut and range safety is paramount.

The training is conducted in Vanderbilt where Northern Security have secured excellent training facilities and
accommodation.  Course delegates are accommodated in a comfortable hotel located 15 minutes drive from the ranges
and training areas.  The ranges are a mixture of pistol and rifle ranges that are ideal for our TFA/CQB training package.

Northern Security is confident that this course will prepare delegates to the very highest standards in weapon handling,
range training and CQB drills.
