We are extremely proud of our 100% safety record, and rigorously maintain our standards to ensure that your experience with us is safe and achieves your personal objective.


For Maritime Security Operators

Our Weapons Competency course covers the requirements as set out by ISO 28007.  It has been designed for those looking to maintain compliance or gain employment within the Maritime Security industry.

During the weapons proficiency our experienced instructors will take you through:


  • Rules of Engagement / Rules of Use of Force
  • Marksmanship Principles
  • Safe handling
  • NSP’S – Load, Unload & Make-safe
  • Stoppage Drills
  • Immediate action drills
  • Accurate target engagement
  • Target acquisition
  • Personnel equipment
  • Rifle familiarisation including stripping and assembly

Students are assessed on conducting weapon safety and marksmanship principles.

This course is open to experienced firearms handlers, such as close protection operatives and maritime security officers. If you do not continually fire and practice weapon drills, your skill set does fade and your reaction times will become longer in alleviating problems and so we have designed this course to keep your skills up and fresh.


The instructor will quickly assess your current level of competency and will work with you to improve your knowledge, safety and competency, to obtain your skill set and accuracy to the highest standard achievable.
