Why Taking The Surveillance Course

By obtaining surveillance, investigations, and intelligence know-how, you will stand out from the rest.

If you are a protection specialist seeking a practical way to gain/hone your soft skills (intelligence and investigative techniques), our 21-day Surveillance Training Course can help you; also, the course can suit all those interested in the subject because of their job occupation. 

Detecting hostile surveillance is the first line of defense in personal security and in protecting a Principal/VIP; collecting valuable intelligence on existing/emerging threats enables protective specialists to build overall operational awareness required to recognize and contain any threats; counter-intelligence work is of crucial importance to prevent loss of crucial information and data leak; thus, intelligence techniques are essential for those engaged in close protection. However, conducting intelligence and investigative activities is a susceptible process that, if not conducted properly, can compromise the operation and put everyone involved in greater danger.  

Nemesis Protection Global LLC—as a versatile private security contractor company—has created this comprehensive training course focussing on specific intelligence activities associated with the dual responsibilities of protection specialists: investigations and protection. You will be equipped with basic knowledge and advanced application training in detecting hostile surveillance, protective intelligence investigations, and collecting critical information on threats.

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 You won't sit all day in the classroom watching videos on surveillance operations nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will practice well-tried techniques in urban and rural environments to develop contemporary methods of tradecraft.

The course is available to the private and government 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.
