At the end of the 6 week training program successful applicants will be given uniforms and placed into various units within Executive Bodyguard Services.
All agents who carry a Precept or FUAC are required every 6 weeks to fire 100 rounds of live ammunition to maintain their certification while executing there day to day duty and ensure a high level of accuracy and proficiency.
Agents who carry a precept or an FUAC undergo a basic course of shooting, an intermediate basic course of shooting, and the advance basic course of shooting. If these applicants are successful within an 18 month period 3 members out of the 120 will be selected for the Tactical Support Unit.
Our TSU training commences with firearm retention, close quarter simulation and advance firearm retention.
Firearm retention work is geared to prepare the TSU member or agent mentally before moving through the various stages of this level of training.
All techniques and manoeuvres must be simulated in a closed confined safe environment before advancing to the open firing range.
Our training methods are adopted from the Americans, the Israelis and the British Special Armed Forces. With these techniques combined Executive Bodyguard will produce the most advance tactical operating agent within the security industry.
We strive for excellence and the ability to cope with any given emergency for our selected group of high profile clients.
Every 2 weeks, our TSU convey leaves our operation centre at 5am precisely. Early arrival on the range is important for healthy training. At 06:00 a full safety briefing is conducted to ensure the highest level of safety is maintained at all times on the firing range.
Our tactical training is not only restricted to static firing routines but our agents are trained for any given position or circumstance. This ensures the agent can efficiently operate his firearm in any tactical situation.
The modern day agent should be equipped at all times to deal with any combat situation in any environment or surrounding necessary. All our training is video recorded as the third instructor. This video is then evaluated immediately after training is complete, which enables us to debrief the agents performance level after tactical training.
Each shot is evaluated assessed and marked to maintain the highest level of accuracy for TSU members.
Our TSU members are trained to work independently, as 2 man tactical teams and 3 man tactical entry teams.
Stress firing is important to maintain safety while operating a firearm within close proximately to each other in order to maintain reliable tactical operations with international standards.
Our training commences despite weather conditions to ensure the agent can fully adapt to any given situation or conditions.
TSU training also consists of 3 night shoots per year from 2am to noon allowing agents to adjust to low light conditions and night operations.
The tactical support unit is also trained in entry and hostage retrieval manoeuvres and has also met international standards with this level of training. Our TSU team will be ready and prepared for any tactical operation 24/7 for any one of our clients located locally or internationally.
