Welcome to the iSMTA and our Hostile Environment Close Protection Course at Level 3, which is certified by Industry Qualifications (IQ) who are approved by qualification regulators in the UK.
The Hostile Environments Close Protection Course (Management), presents a modern approach to working in hostile environments on protective security details and close protection tasks.
Through the privatisation of security within war-torn countries over the past decade, most reconstruction projects require the support of professional expat security providers from a contractual, legal and insurance requirement. Regrettably, there are many high-risk security operatives around the world today making supervisory or managerial decisions affecting Protective Security Details (PSD) who have no formal competency qualifications. As a result, both the security details and their principals may be placed at unnecessary risk of physical harm.
The iSMTA Level 3 Hostile Environment Close Protection course has been designed to effectively deliver a first for management qualifications and train those required to manage operatives working within hazardous countries on protective security details and close protection tasks, and it provides recognition and certification as a Professional Hostile Environments Close Protection Manager, which adds value to the clients and builds on the operatives Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
