Why Taking The PSD Leader Course

The 14-day training will prepare you for the challenging role of a PSD/PPD team leader.

If you are a protective specialist seeking the best way to improve your hard skills (tactical competency) and get some soft skills (leadership competency), our 14-day Protective Security Detail Leader Training Course fits the bill.

In almost every circumstance, strong leadership and a smoothly-running team is the most effective means for operational effectiveness. Whether in emergencies or day-to-day ops, a capable leader is essential for attaining a mission success. Leadership is best tested in a crisis; in other words, the way a leader behaves and acts during the crisis sets apart a good leader from a bad one. Nemesis Protection Global LLC has developed this distinctive course that builds on the skills gained at the close protection training program, enabling rapid intervention in unanticipated negative events, and equipping team leaders with the professional know-how to make key decisions quickly to defuse a volatile situation or to reduce danger until a Principal/VIP be safely evacuated. The course is aimed at individuals who already work as personal protection specialists in executive protection and/or the private military sector.

Our company endorses a training doctrine: train as you will operate, propping our training concept to deliver a no-nonsense, all-inclusive, and cost-efficient course for all participants. You won't sit all day in the classroom or fire rounds into a static paper-target or practice old-fashioned and never-tested techniques; you will be tested physically and mentally to develop strong leadership skills.

The course is for the commercial and government sectors and private individuals. The syllabus can be geared to your organization's needs and provided for your personnel at your location globally. The pricing of the adapted training program depends on curriculum, duration, and location.

Is there a guaranteed job placement after the course?

We can only promise a high level of training and ongoing post-course support.
