Our Trainers

Many of our trainers and instructors operating around the world are from military special forces and police backgrounds and have very extensive operational experience. They have a huge amount of experience of working in hostile environments throughout Africa, the Middle East, South America, Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia and Eastern Europe.

They have also spent many years training personnel and groups, much of this in very hostile environments.
