7 Day Close Quarter Battle (CQB)
7 Day Close Quarter Battle (CQB) + IOF Level 3 Combined Live Shooting
Aug - Dec
7 days of intense training.
Although all close protection officers should be trained in this remit, we do understand that it’s a level to get to.
This course content is like the SWAT training course led by the USA government which is one of the highest standards in the world.
We train overseas government SWAT teams and individuals alike. So, if you wish to learn the most up-to-date teachings of CQB covering all aspects from theory to practical with a multiple-choice exam and practical exercise to pass the training course, then look no further.
Based on the USA SF 3 principles of CQB: surprise, speed and violence of action including brand new teachings.
ABA developed scenarios whereby, the learner will have the chance to become both defender and attacker, attackers try a very fast, violent takeover of a vehicle or structure controlled by the defenders, who usually have no easy way to withdraw. because enemies, hostages/civilians, and fellow operators can be closely intermingled, close-quarters combat demands a rapid assault and a precise application of lethal force. the operators need great proficiency with their weapons, and the ability to make split-second decisions to minimize accidental casualties.
ABA’s CQB course will guide learners through the military to private transition process, entering the employment and interviews with the recruitment companies to gain work in the hostile environment industry. Of course, it’s easier if you are former military, but not always essential, as there are many non-former militaries working in hostile environments.
Anyone wishing to enter the high-risk industry of armed close protection would seriously need to take this type of training (former military or not) this qualification is designed for those learners wishing to apply for a job in the private security contractor or overseas high- risk industry. The 7-day course also gives the learner the minimum requirements to apply for overseas high-risk jobs such as middle east, Africa, and south America.
You will be put through your paces from our highly experienced tutors, so prepare to train hard every single day. we finish the course with 2 days of final exercises including hostage rescue and protecting clients that you will possibly come across in your future career, so this course really prepares you for high risk bodyguarding and for armed private security contractors looking to work overseas in places like Iraq and Libya for example.
