G.S EX Mil……..As an experienced soldier I must admit about the thought of having to jump through the SIA hoop made me feel insulted.  After doing a weekend of research and speaking to the bigger names on the circuit one CP instructors name seemed to keep coming-up.

So after calling ACPASS and talking to Mick himself I got an instant feeling that this guy knew what he was talking about, so I signed up that day.

From the first day to the last all learning modules where explained professionally and thoroughly, Mick would backup his teaching with real-world experiences, therefore cementing their relevance. I am by no means a course junkie however I cannot recommend the ACPASS Ltd. team enough.

Mick is supported by a seasoned team and I wish them all the best and continual success in the future. In fact later down the road I should like the opportunity to return as an instructor myself.

First-class accommodation and an outstanding breakfast, thank you.

L.I ex 3 Para…….During this course, we were shown all aspects of close protection, every PowerPoint lesson was followed by practical exercises perfecting all drills covered, having completed a CP course several years ago, this course was by far a bigger learning curve, covering much more than the SIA requirements of a CPO, Mick and his team of instructors delivered the course with professionalism and had a wealth of knowledge.

The accommodation was 1st class and the breakfast top-class.

Miss. P.D ex WRAC………After the CP course I now feel competent to take up my duty as a CPO, my aim was to learn which was something I did due to the 2 excellent tutors I had, then knowledge and experience was used to help us all identify our role as CPO’s, I’m pleased to say I enjoyed the course thoroughly and can’t wait to start my career in close protection.

P.A Ex Mil…..A very enjoyable and informative course covering all aspects of CP work I feel confident that all the instructions I have received will help me in any future jobs in CP.

The accommodation provided was excellent, and the breakfast the best.

G.L…….As a civilian, firstly I would like firstly like to say thank you to all the instructors, the CP course has given me an excellent understanding of CP.  I can now truly say that my views of CP are lot more different than before I enrolled on this course with ACPASS Ltd.
