Close Protection Forum Thread, Ifs2i in Close Protection World Area; Anyone done this course?...
These guys have recently started advertising with us and after having spoke with them the other day on the phone they seem to know their stuff.
It certainly looks interesting diving bit of para, driving etc etc coming down ropes upside down! got to be worth it just for the experience alone
Which could be time spent training for what you are actually attending the course for and paying money for.

OK, this time it's really time to write it clear :
STAY CLEAR FROM IFS2I.
-as CPW members realized, it's dodgy to learn parachuting and coming down ropes if you want to become a CPO
-they don't grant any official qualification, not even the French one (IFS2I is french managed)
-they tried posting on CPWorld a while ago, not even completing the "introduction" section, so many unhappy guys attacked them that they got angry and left the forum... and now advertising ?!? Geeze...
-they've behaved in a disgusting manner towards the best french CP forum ; they had a chance to explain who they are and what they do, instead they created fake memberships to say how great their course is, and also :
-never answered accurate questions, such as "in what countries does your operational branch operate ?" or "in what companies do your graduates work ?"
-ended up threatening the forum of legal action, for defamation and even "incitement to hatred" (I'M NOT JOKING)
Now... for those who don't believe me, just out of curiosity, let's ask a respected, confirmed professional of CPWorld ; MTS, you're welcome to add your opinion.

I fully agree with you Arnaud.
I tried looking for the last posts on IFS2I on this forum but I think the posts have been deleted (maybe something to do with them advertising?)
Anyhow, to cut a long story short these guys are the worse that France has ever seen in regards to CP.
The company director is well known, not in the best of ways.
They are a dodgy company mate put it that way.
The videos they have on the internet does not belong to them and belongs to the Russian Special forces camp called Vitiaz, watch it and all you can see and hear is Russian.
They were also advertising courses in Las Vegas but again the course did not belong to them and belonged to a company called CRI that is headed by an ex Israeli SF soldier.
Basically these guys just surf on other people and take money for other people's actions

I know a lot more on them but cannot say too much on here as it would be wrong because this is a forum.
I do however believe that when a product is not good, then good and honest people should be informed before they spend the money and put an alert.
If guys here believe that a course that teaches you rappelling , parachuting, diving, and all kinds of things like that gets you into CP then please reconsider and do not be a fool.
No you will not get parachuted into a dinner party with the principal
You will not be diving at great depths with an AK47 at night in order to go and save your principal after he has been kidnapped.
You will not rappel to a meeting with the principal on your back.
If you want to be SF, join up.
