Security Guard Force Training Course Overview: We are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality and relevant training.

We understand the need to offer only this quality of service on order to provide only the very best courses.

“They were incredibly flexible with regards to the training and streamlined it so as to address the areas that they needed to focus on”

“The training I received has been a very eye-opening experience indeed”

The ESTS Security Guard Force Training Course has been specifically designed by ESTS for security officers working in areas such as holiday resorts, hotels and other high-visibility areas. Each tier of the course is designed to increase the quality and capability of the officers’ personal security skills until he or she has been trained to the highest level of professionalism. It has been widely viewed by people working in the security industry at every level that far too little emphasis is placed on the personal development and training of security guard force officers. Many of these security officers have received insufficient training from either their employer or the company contracting or employing them. The security officer carries much responsibility, especially the safety and security of the area in which they work and for any of the staff, guests or residents in that area. With today's ever-growing terrorist threat, not to mention the every-day criminal elements in today's society, high-quality, effective and capable security is of paramount importance. Security officers naturally, are there for a reason and their training must be of the highest standard and must be provided by experienced and capable security trainers such as those at ESTS International. Our programme is one of the best available on the commercial market and can be implemented in conjunction with the following listed beneficial services in order to deliver maximum effect. Our core instructor cadre are Certified Antiterrorism Specialists (CAS) as well as Certified Master Antiterrorism Specialists (CMAS) through the US-based Anti Terrorism Accreditation Board (ATAB).

Security Guard Force Training Subjects: The Security Guard Force Training Course covers subjects on a classroom instructional and practical basis such as (but not limited to): • • • • • • • • • • • • •

"Steve & Dave from ESTS spent 10 days with our Security Team here in the Maldives at our resort. During their visit with us they identified various areas for improvement in our security team and conducted indepth training with our guards. They were incredibly flexible with regards to the training and streamlined it so as to address the areas they needed to focus on. I would recommend their services to other resorts as the company is professional and deliver what they say they will." Reference: Ashleigh Christie (Training Manager, Reethi Rah Resort; the Maldives)

“I hope to receive more training from them in the future, thanks for everything”

“..... I was immediately impressed with Steve’s knowledge of security operations especially those concerning executive protection. His ability to instruct on this subject is unsurpassed by other instructors that I've attended classes with. His ability to keep a student focused on the subject being taught is unrivalled. His ability to add humour and wit to class subjects makes retention of subjects easier for students. I learned a great deal from him and would love to have him working with my team here in Iraq as Team Leader ....." Reference: Chris, former US Military (PSD Manager, Iraq)

Bodyguard Training Courses: We are market leaders at providing our customers with professional Physical Security Training and Consultancy Services.

We continue to develop our existing training programmes in order to remain current.

Our courses are adaptive to the environment we are training our customer’s security teams to operate in.

Our courses range from Site Security to Hostile Environment PSD Courses.

ESTS International also offers low to medium-threat-environment bodyguard training courses. The training of students is a very specialized field especially when the student speaks very little English or the Instructor speaks very little of the students native language. In these circumstances training is extremely difficult and requires great time and patience by the instructor. The Directors of ESTS International and their associated consultants are very skilled in this area and have trained many local nationals in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo and other environments. They have built excellent rapports with these students and are regularly contacted for advice and information. Having served in these environments for many years the instructors know what is needed that will work in that particular environment. ESTS Ltd have structured their training courses to meet the needs of the individual, from those with little or no security experience to those who have good experience in some of the CPP areas of expertise. We have found that the professional CPP Operator cannot stop learning all their lives, as quite simply the lives of their clients and themselves are at risk.
