Selecting a Bodyguard or CPO

Unfortunately there are many "fly by night" operators cropping up each day, each one claiming to be an expert and bodyguards in the field of VIP Protection. The reality is many of these are people simply trying to make a quick buck off the high crime rate in the country, and people’s fears in relation to this.


Our view is that competition in any industry is good and healthy, providing the levels of service are not compromised. When selecting close protection officers (CPOs) or bodyguards, make sure you are using a reputable company with an adequate list of references. It is also advisable that you select a company who have a decent track record, and have at least 10 years of operating experience.


Remember guns and dark glasses do not make a bodyguard! Careful planning and intellect are the two key components of any successful protection assignment. Do not be scared to ask questions! After all it is your life and that of your families, bringing a stranger into that environment needs to be very carefully planned!


VIP Protection Training



Due to the nature of our courses and the size of our facilities, our minimum requirement for training would be six (6) delegates and maximum twelve (12).

Bookings are made according to a first come first serve basis.


Please note that Body Guard Protection Services does not provide accommodation for delegates, but will however assist in finding suitable accommodation at the best rates.


Previous Experience

Our courses are designed and presented by seasoned experts in this particular field. Therefore it is not necessary for delegates to have previous knowledge or experience as the courses themselves cover all the aspects that V.I.P Protection Specialists would need to be familiar with.

Employment Opportunity

Although Bodyguard Protection Services does not guarantee employment of any delegates who successfully complete any of our training programmes, we do from time to time call upon delegates who demonstrate a high level of proficiency to undertake contract work if required.
