Why Taking The CAT Course

You will learn counter-assault techniques and methods of close-quarters combat relevant to close protection.

The role of the Counter Assault Team (CAT) is clear: if a Principal/VIP and a close protection team come under an attack, the CAT operators are the ones who will engage the enemy fire—repelling coordinated attacks—providing emergency response; when the close protection team gets into trouble, the CAT operators rescue the team—providing cover—while the team evacuates the Principal/VIP to safety; this suggests that the CAT role is demanding and requires high-performance operatives.

Nemesis Protection Global LLC—as a high-level provider of international risk management services—understands all requirements and challenges facing the CAT operatives and has created this intensive training course to prepare you for one of the most demanding tasks in close protection within both Executive Protection and PSD Protection Operations. The course is aimed at protective specialists, the military, and law enforcement personnel wanting to enhance their tactical skills—including close-quarters combat, small-team tactics, tactical weapons handling, counter-ambush, tactical medicine, and unarmed combat.

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning; they will ensure that all candidates are properly trained. Our company has adopted a training philosophy: train as you will operate—underpinning our training principles to deliver the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course for all candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will be challenged in different ways—physically and mentally—to enhance critical performance and to function as an organized, quick-reaction team.  

The course is available to the private and public sectors and private individuals. The syllabus can be tailored to your organization's needs and delivered for your personnel at your location worldwide; the pricing of the bespoke training program depends on curriculum, duration, and location.

Is there a guaranteed job placement after the course?

In short, no, there is not; it is not ethical nor professional to guarantee you a job after the course because of many reasons; for example, whether a candidate is fit for a position or not, it's impossible to know in advance. Besides, market demand and client preferences are constantly changing and are hard to predict; however, we are an operational company, and when an opportunity arises, we prefer our graduates above all others. We can only promise a high level of training and ongoing post-course support.
