The course is held by the Military Training Center and it's modeled after Special Operations Warfare training programs.

You will shoot live from pistol and assault rifle with training in shooting scenarios. You will learn basic first aid to stabilize your wounded principal or fellow operator injured during the incident. As the highlight there will be a live scenario in a urban area during rush hours, which will be evaluated by your instructors. For the last day is the practical final exam, which consists of your successful performance of the real world, day long situational. This will not just be a bodyguard program of practical work but a Military High Risk Close Protection Training and Certification Program which will allow you to work in high risk zones of the world.
