We firmly believe that Close Protection and Surveillance work hand in glove which is one reason why we put all of our students through an intensive surveillance phase prior to commencing on the Close Protection phase of the course. Time after time the feedback from course students tells us that not only is this an interesting phase but one that can potentially open up more employment opportunities for students post course. We also find that peoples 3rd party awareness is significantly increased due to this intensive phase of training. Although all students undergo this phase not all receive the BTEC Level 3 in Advanced Surveillance – you must perform in order to get this but you will find that having our certification is well worth while.
Although our course has large parts of practical exercises we do of course have classroom sessions throughout all phases where the instructors pass on their knowledge backed up with situations from their own experiences gained in the field over the past 30+ years. Our instructors do not teach from books written on the subject, they teach from 1st hand experiences.
Argus Europe want all of their students to be able to step in to the “The Circuit” as well prepared as possible and to this end all of our Close Protection students are first loaded on to our in-house First Person On the Scene (i) Medical Course, a course well above the minimum standard for Close Protection Officers. Our instructors are medical professionals, all of whom have many years of 1st hand experience from a variety of theatres. You will finish this phase feeling extremely competent in your medical skills and also in posession of a BTEC Level 2.

Is there anything else?
We pride ourselves in giving our students the very best chance of gaining employment within the Security Industry and to that end all of our students are advised about Curriculum Vitae’s, Personal Portfolios, the etiquette required on The Circuit and more….just ask our students, they will tell you just how valuable this element of the course is.
Post Course Support
Many training providers have been criticised over the years for not offering post course support and quite rightly so. At Argus Europe we do not do this and have set up a group for Argus students only. Upon successful completion of your course you will be given access to the Argus Group where you can easily network with other Argus students and be made aware of potentially vital information regarding employment opportunities and legislative changes.
