    No sorry mate, I have no idea where he is these days, this was 10 years ago and at that time people came and people went... That was the discipline!

    Good luck anyway...

    Good day GIJoe, two of the instructors at a Tactical Training school in SK are ex-CF Close Protection Unit as well as former Blackwater/Academi.

    Btw, did you try to get into the CF CP Unit? I think I remember it being open to MPs only, but that may have changed

    Well , ill do a short version of my storie, i did try to get on selection for CP and JTF but my good sergent-major (at this time) use to say special course is for pussy , and make out ton of reason to not get US on any selection. The only (special) course i was able to do is combat diver since the course is taught by combat engineer like me. And now im close to get my releaase so the only option i have for CP in Canadian Force is Re enter as a Mp in the force. But i cant wait much longer to get at work so i thought doing a cp course like Ronin in South-africa.

    I can understand him not wanting to lose his best guys to other units, but wow.

    And Ronin SA seems to have a really good rep on this forum. I was inquiring with them as well

    That certainly sounds like an old Sapper mined man.

    Hell, that's not even true. Depends who the work is for.

    Sorry, has your Sgt tried the JTF selection?

    I'd jump on an opportunity for that. You can name your price after that. Highly respected.

    I would have signed up just for that, too bad they have this stupid rule about ridiculously long background checks if you've lived outside of Canada for more than 6 months. Fact that I'd been contracting south of the border on some weird ass stuff kind of made JTF2 an impossibility.

    I would highly recommend you try to get in there if you want to do top tier PMC work later. Have a blast for a few years, then have the CV from hell.

    With a CV like that; you won't need to try too hard to find work, rather CP work will find you.

    Exactly!

    Your biggest problem will be not getting crushed by the money people throw at you.
