We spend more on each student’s training than our competitors charge for an entire course...
As Ronin SA provides training to specialised units within government we are obliged to maintain strict entry criteria and to conduct due diligence on all of our clients. Our reputation for brand excellence is also derived, to some extent, from these strict entry standards.
Military / Police Background
Many of our graduates have military & police backgrounds, but this is not a requirement to attend our training. Civilians with suitable background checks, an open mind, disciplined work ethic and a good level of fitness do very well.
English Language Proficiency
Because the course is conducted / assessed in English and given that the UK Security regulator requires a certain level of English (Functional Skills Level 1 in English), it is important for you to reflect on whether you have taken other challenging courses in English and passed. If you have, then you should pass our course as many have done before in their second language.
Our instructors are fluent in Afrikaans, German and French and will assist students where possible to cope with the English medium course and assessment.
Acceptance onto one of our courses all depends on the nature of the criminal activity and your convictions.
We will need a background check from any country you have stayed in for more than two (2) years as an adult (not including military deployments).
