Our International Licenses for 2021

The International SIA License is recognized in more than 70 countries.  As more and more companies become multi-national and spread their activity across the world, their security professionals have to bring their technics and accreditations to the new level of requirements. SIA Officer Qualification is an absolute legal requirement to perform security services in Europe and in many other countries. SIA CPO License speaks by itself for your level of expertise, it is a qualification that will set you apart from the crowd.

New HECPO qualification for our 28 training course : The upsurge of terrorism, violent extremism and organized crimes have produced an increased need for highly skilled private security contractors worldwide. Operating in high threat, conflict-affected, austere, and limited-infrastructure environments requires a specialist skillset and use of special operational procedures. Your assignment starts as soon as you put your feet on the ground and cross a border, leaving you with no time to train with foreign weapon systems or to practice tactics with your team in the country or to adapt to a new environment. Therefore, it's paramount to pull yourself together as soon as possible and hit the ground running since day one. In this regard, PRAETORIAN BODYGUARD USA completely understands these operational shortcomings, and we have created the Hostile Environment Close Protection Operators (HECPO) training course as a response. The course is designed for candidates who work or plan to work in high-risk terrain worldwide.


Training is delivered by extensively experienced instructors in real-world conditions, and they will ensure that all candidates are properly trained. Our company has adopted a training philosophy – train as you will operate – underpinning our training principles to provide the candidates with the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course. There are no all-day sitting in the classroom nor firing rounds into a static paper-target nor practicing outdated, never-tested techniques. You will be challenged, both physically and mentally, to step out of your comfort zone and develop a problem-solving mindset – improvise, adapt, and overcome.
