Why Taking The PSD Leader Course

This comprehensive program will prepare you for a challenging role of a security detail leader.

If you are a close protection operative looking for practical training to upgrade your hard skills (tactical competency) and acquire some soft skills (leadership competency), our protective security detail leader course fits the bill.

As a result of increased casualties in various attacks on executive protection teams and Principals around the world, the greater emphasis is being placed on proficiency in crisis leadership and decision-making. In an emergency, a capable team leader is of cardinal importance for a rapid decision-making process, and his/her leadership is tested in a crisis.

Giving this circumstance, Nemesis Protection, as a top-tier private security company, has developed this course that builds on the skills acquired at the close protection course, enabling rapid intervention in the event of a crisis, equipping team leaders with the professional know-how to quickly make key decisions to defuse a volatile situation or reduce danger until the Principal be safely evacuated. The course is aimed at individuals who already work in executive protection and seek a practical way to enhance and update their skillset.

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning, and 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 candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom nor fire rounds into a static paper-target nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques. You will be challenged in different ways, both physically and mentally, to develop strong leadership skills.
