    Security Risk Management Consultancy Course - Protection Group International

    Hello gents I've just completed the SRMC with PGI and agree that the guest speakers were excellent. Despite my military and commercial security background, I still found the course quite challenging. The course is still developing and I've given my feedback to the chaps in the training office...

    Marsec companies that consider ex police firearms

    My tuppence worth may be a tadge out of date but in Feb '10 I sat an interview with G4S in London and there was a non-mil/ol' bill who was given a chance. I didn't go with G4S so I don't know how he got on.

    changes to CRB

    If I may add my tuppence worth? I believe Enhanced CRB checks are taking place since Cameron gave the green light to UK flagged Vsls to have armed guards. Therefore, the companies who bid for such a contract must apply for exemption from sec.5 of the Firearms act (Semi-Auto) and must make the...

    Can you believe this??

    The report sounds bollocks. There can be no better advertisement for a company to report "pirate attack disrupted, all crew safe, proceeding with transit" Jobzagoodun!

    Swamping in the wind?

    May I offer some advice, before the wolf-pack gets a sniff of this. Strong shout describing yourself as "fully trained". After over twenty years in Her Majesty's finest I still wouldn't describe myself as such. Additionally, having been on a Nod TT I am of the understanding that after three...

    Maritime security. Is the Corps facing a crisis?

    Whatsamatta wi you lot? I'm only doing MARSEC to save up for a face-lift then rejoin as a J/Mne and do another 22 for free. Seriously though If MARSEC is the pull, the Corps should ask themselves what is the push?

    Miris international ltd

    If you can tolerate the inevitable 'teething problems' inherent of a new company, there is a lot to be said for being around at the birth of a new project. I've always enjoyed the challenges and the excitement involved in drawing on a blank sheet of A4. If there's a warm and fuzzy feeling and...

    RM looking for advice before making the plunge

    S***loads of work out there at the moment Royal. The companies that the lads have already mentioned are your starting point. PVI are expanding rapidly so with your profile and with SSO, ENG-1, SCTW95, Yellow fever you'll be on the right track. Best of luck and keep tabs on the MARSEC forum.

    How many of you are making a living out of MARSEC?

    I started with the intention of making a quick killing then mag to grid. I actually see this as a second career now that I've taken a slight diversion from AP. If you can get in with one of the reputable companies you will find there is shed loads of work for the foreseeable future. If the Long...
