Event Overview

Blackline has partnered with WGT Consulting to offer an Introduction to Close Protection. This immersive training plan enables students to perform their roles as part of a close protection team; increasing the survivability of the Principal and that of their team. 

The one-day training evolution provides the base knowledge necessary to apply previous military simulation experience to Close Protection scenario problems, and will provide new techniques applicable beyond the scope of VIP protection.


Training will be delivered in both classroom and real world practical settings, guided by qualified and experienced military and police instructors. Training will be followed by a culminating scenario testing the teams grasp of the content across a multi-site protection scenario.
