Close protection is a complex spectrum of activities that ensure the maximum safety of designated individuals.

GPG’s training courses are designed to comprehensively prepare students to perform the tasks assigned to them. Our training educates students on how to provide personal protection within the Executive Protection structure, as well as a type of high-risk protection that is typically the domain of Private Military Companies (PMCs) in regions at risk of war or terrorist attacks.

We offer close protection training in the following forms:

  • Courses: several days of training, during which we provide full cross-sectional knowledge
  • Thematic training: focused on teaching a specific skill from start to finish
  • Training workshops: designed to further develop skills acquired during courses and training

  • Hazard and risk assessment

  • Direct protection tactics
  • Location safety
  • Conflict management
  • Firearms training
