As we all know Female Bodyguards in London are highly sought after, so we thought it may be of benefit to some of our readers to post this review from one of our female students who took the course last year.
I’m a 40-year old female with a background in marketing, martial arts and dance, so, it could’ve been quite daunting to walk into a classroom filled with younger military and police trained personnel. However I’d done my homework and knew the Excellentia Close Protection (CP) course was right for me.
When evaluating all the training providers & courses available, it quickly became clear the Excellentia offering was head and shoulders above the others. Not just in terms of best suiting my civilian background, but also by giving me the best spring-board into the industry once I passed as a female bodyguard to operate in London and around the world.
The reputation of the instructors and the course content (above and beyond what the SIA stipulate is needed) is unsurpassed. Plus the ‘guest speakers’ I met are invaluable contacts to have when starting off in a new industry.
Coming from a corporate/commercial background I didn’t want a course containing anything irrelevant to my industry prospects. E.g. I didn’t need any firearms training because I can’t carry one. But it would be prevalent to gain some advanced driving skills as that’s more likely to be needed. So I signed up to the next available Excellentia course in London to begin my bodyguard training adventure.
As expected, the Excellentia instructors were all incredible. Each brought their own personality and vast bodyguarding experience to the table. Helping to give me insights and development points to continuously enhance my new practical skills. The practical work and exposure to real-time scenarios was an amazing experience.
By the end of the course I was confident in my ability to do what was expected & needed of me both as a member of the team, and when acting as the Team Leader.
I would highly recommend Excellentia to anyone looking to make the best possible start in the world of Close Protection (bodyguarding).
