Ok lads, I've been approached by an American firm- who shall remain nameless for obvious reasons- about me working for them. Slight problem is that I need to have attended and passed a WPPS accredited course. They are prepared to wait until I have attended the course, but won't sort it themselves, had their fingers burned by guys doing a course with them paying and then the blokes doing the off once WPPS trained.
My question to everyone here in the know is what is the best WPPS accredited course? Obviously some are American only, which can be sorted by my potential employer. But aside from HDSOC and Blackwater, what other courses are there that are WPPS accredited?

If you can tell what the WPPS stands for, I might be able to help. I know most of the US approved courses.
Thanks for asking that question Jerry, I don't feel quite so stupid now!
World Wide Personal Protection Services
This is a US government program.
More here, read past the first paragraph and you will se a history and explanation of the program
Hope this helps.

There are only 3 companies that offer the WPPS course as they are the only companies that operate within the WPPS program. The program is a US State Department program that provides security for US diplomats operating in high threat areas. I am currently on a WPPS contract for Blackwater and I recommend them completely. However the other two companies, Triple Canopy and DynCorp are both quite reputable as well. Good luck.
