Why Taking The CAT Course

The 14-day course will provide you with counter-assault techniques and methods of close-quarters combat relevant to close protection.

The role of a 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 and providing emergency response; when the close protection team gets into trouble, the CAT Operators rescue/back up the protective team—providing cover—while the team evacuates the Principal/VIP to safety; this suggests that the CAT role is demanding and requires highly trained operatives.

Nemesis Protection Global LLC understands all requirements and challenges facing the CAT Operatives and has created this intense training course to prepare you for one of the sternest tasks in close protection (both Executive Protection and PSD/PPD Protection Operations). The course is aimed at protection 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.

Our company follows a training strategy: train as you will operate, supporting our training principles to provide a sound, task-based, and cost-effective course for all candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom or practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will be tested physically and mentally to build critical performance and to function as an organized, quick-reaction team.


The course is accessible to private and public sector organizations and civilians. The syllabus can be custom-made to your organization's needs and delivered to 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, 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.
