Creating the Quiet Professionals of Tomorrow...

International Recognition

Ronin SA is well known for its international recognition. This accolade is something Ronin SA has worked many years to attain within the global close protection and pre hospital care industry.

International Employment is generally based on two fundamental questions:

1. Were you trained by a longstanding and reputable organisation within the global industry?
2. Are you licensed / registered with any country or provincial regulator of the profession?

In the case of the first question, Ronin SA has been shaping the industries view of excellence via our synergy between close protection and emergency medicine for over 22 years. Ronin SA was voted in the top three training organizations globally by EP Wired Magazine (US).

With regards to the second question, any country, state or provincial registration as a close protection officer is sufficient to meet the insurance criteria on the international circuit as well as locally in that country. In the old days the UK SIA registration was sort after but it no longer has international employment relevance for non-UK nationals as only UK Nationals can hold SIA (UK) registration.

The bottom line is you need to choose a training provider with a strong international credentials and reputation who can provide the following:

  • Real globally relevant Close Protection training in an “at risk” space
  • Ambulance Level medical training
  • Advanced Driver training, including time on a Skid Pan and Racetrack
  • Dynamic Live Fire Firearms training
  • Realistic real world Close Quarter Battle training 
  • Operational Close Protection Experience in an “at risk” space

Ronin SA does this in spades……and then some.

After gaining skills relevant to the realities of close protection on the global stage with Ronin SA, you can approach your local regulator for licensing on a Recognition of Prior Learning basis and do any local top up training they may require.
