Close Protection training

SIA training courses

Hawki run SIA-approved close protection courses throughout the year. These are for individuals looking to gain their SIA licence and the necessary security qualifications for a career in personal protection.

Our SIA security training is hands-on and realistic, and delivered by experienced industry professionals.

Candidates complete their close protection training in the UK, at our industry-leading security training facility outside London. Here, they take part in CP and medical training, as well as receiving advice on careers. On completion of the SIA course and exam, candidates undergo a two day high risk environment training exercise.

On completion of the course, candidates will be able to apply for their SIA licence in close protection and begin a security career. They will be awarded the following certificates:
