Why Taking The PSD Leader Course

This comprehensive training program will prepare you for the challenging role of a PSD team leader.

If you are a protective specialist looking for a practical training program to upgrade your hard skills (tactical competency) and gain soft skills (leadership competency), our 14-day Protective Security Detail Leader Training Course fits the bill.

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

Nemesis Protection Global LLC is a top-tier protective and investigative services provider and has developed this tactical course that builds on the skills gained at the close protection training program—enabling rapid intervention in the event of a crisis—equipping team leaders with the professional know-how to make key decisions quickly to defuse a volatile situation or reduce danger until the Principal/VIP be safely evacuated. The course is aimed at individuals who already work as close protection specialists within executive protection/the private military sector and seek a practical way to enhance and update their skill set.

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 You won't sit all day in the classroom nor fire rounds into a static paper-target nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will be challenged in different ways—physically and mentally—to develop strong leadership skills. 

The course is available to the commercial and government sectors and civilians. 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.
