IQ Level 5 Certificate in Close Protection

Description

Welcome to the iSMTA Close Protection Training and our Modern Personal Protection Professional course at Level 5, which is certified by Industry Qualifications (IQ) who are approved by qualification regulators in the UK.

This Level 5 Qualification is the first of its kind in the UK and enables those to enhance their skills and knowledge compared to the traditional Level 3 competencies and increase the expertise in the industry (to Higher Education).

Personal Protection (Close Protection) has been a necessary part of business for a long time. The need to protect the business, its brand reputation, its people, its profits and its financial secrets has always been the main objective. Every business or individual, will be protected by some type of protective security measures, with most measures being so normal that they are a simple part of our everyday lives.

Close Protection Training above the SIA requirements

Another feature of Personal Protection is that it needs to be ever-changing, to adapt to evolving threats, including business needs and the ever-changing world. Personal Protection must continue to modernise in order to maintain it’s value and effectiveness. Having already qualified as an Licensed Close Protection Operative, this programme is an excellent way to be a Modern Personal Protection Professional for business and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
