Everyone should have the safety talk. Whether you are in a high risk industry, working a desk job, or are a frequent business traveller, danger can (and usually does) strike when you least expect it.
Chico Force Sdn Bhd makes danger and safety their business. As a security and protection service provider, they have extensive experience in providing the finest safety and defence training to their security and executive protection personnel, such as their Executive Aide de Camps.
However, this kind of training should not be limited only to those interested to work in the safety and security field.
Their Executive Close Protection Operator course that was recently carried out in Kuantan trained and groomed individuals to become sharp in detecting, avoiding, and dealing with danger and other unpredictable circumstances.
Tapping into the resources and network that the company has already forged, Chico Force has now put together a similar safety and defense course which will be open to the general public soon.
“The skills taught are applicable to a wide number of personnel that could find themselves in potentially threatening situations, such as journalists, politicians, and businessmen,” says chief instructor Mike, a British military veteran flown in from the United Kingdom to lead the two-week long training.
