After leaving the military they have received specialised executive protection (advanced security) training and gone on to work for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals and at least one other global bodyguard company
Military Trained Bodyguards
The British Military instills discipline into its servicemen and women from day one of their basic training carrying on until their service is completed. Most Garvian bodyguards will have 8-16 years military service behind them, they have received extensive training in:
Force Protection skills are developed by most regiments to mitigate hostile action against the ministry of defences operations at ground level. All our operatives have operational experience in this field, many to an advanced/instructor level.
Military close protection units are Royal military police and Special forces, trained and specialising in the protection of high ranking military personnel and other VIP’s. Most of our operatives have either received this training or worked alongside individuals who have, some are former CPU instructors.
Garvian operatives are skilled in art of using observation methods to obtain and gather information about a targets activities, resources or characteristics. In military operations Reconnaissance is the exploration of areas unoccupied by friendly forces, to gain intelligence on enemy presence or natural features.
Basic, Advanced and foreign weapon systems are taught in the regiments where we select our bodyguards.
Counter IED (Improvised explosive device)
All operatives have basic IED and ground sign awareness knowledge, Some including the Garvian Managing Director are former IED Search Specialists, trained specifically in the detection of home made (HME) and military grade explosives (ME).
Training in the private sector is just as important if not more so, than it is so in the Military as you don’t have the same support network and authorisation. Our bodyguards undergo consistent career development to remain in date and competant with todays modern practices and procedures.
