Report on the training seminar of PSA - Academy


 
In September 2008 Prof. George POPPER – President of IBSSA became Honorary Founding Member of the England based International Protective and Security Academy (PSA - Academy).
Due to this cooperation between the IBSSA and the PSA - Academy – which became Official Training Centre of IBSSA in the U.K. – in 2009 a successful training seminar was organised in Budapest, Hungary. At the end of the course many agents received their PSA - Academy degree amongst the IBSSA-VIP Protection Agent certificate, too. Most of the participants became full members of the IBSSA.

Main subjects of the course were:

• Introduction of the Roles and Responsibilities of the V.I.P. Protection Operative
• Different defensive techniques and tactics, and their applications with the occasion of special events and situations


• Special weapon treatment

• Explosive unit research procedures, included the water vehicles (yachts), when the participants gained expertise in the usage of the diving equipment.
• Law and Legislation in the V.I.P. protection's work
• Protocol and Security Protocol
• The recognition of sabotage, threat and risk assessment
• Psychological knowledge and Conflict Management Skills
• Cooperation with other forces
• Rescue and escape procedures
• Single and Team guard work
• Stress training in tactical house
• Operational driving
• Special Combat shootings techniques with pistol

• Training in full-contact combat (Krav-Maga - Israeli self-defence system)

• Evacuation techniques
• Communication knowledge and use of radio
• First Aid, Secondary Aid (Emergency respond), CPR and the usage of exterior defibrillator

and much more other technical knowledge.

Onto the end of the second week the participants exhaustedly - by the high intensity of the training -, but proudly received their IBSSA diploma with their PSA - Academy diploma together on a civil academic specialisation and their qualifying sheets. This allows them to work like Close Protection Officer in all over the UK, plenty of ex-British colonies and in many African countries.

One of the two Hungarians starts his job in May-June 2009 in Northern Ireland, working for a civil security company – contracted to the Shell multinational oil company -, while the other Hungarian will be escorting convoys and individuals.

Hereby we wish them good luck for their work, and life.
