Robert Lawrence, (January 09) CP & Surveillance Course, MD Own Business
“Unlike many courses, this is not an attendance course. You will be required to put in a lot of effort but for those who do, they will gain the knowledge and skills required to begin a career as a Professional Close Protection Operative. From now on, I will be putting all my guys through the Agrus Europe course.” www.keyguarduklimited.co.uk

“If you are thinking of doing a course then do your research, look at the course content and the experience/quality of the instructors. Some people talk a good course, Argus Europe deliver a good course – that is the difference! This course should be the benchmark for all courses.” jim_b378 (at) hotmail.com

2 excellent courses, both intense, both hard work but both very rewarding. Excellent post course assistance has contributed to me now being fulltime on the circuit.
