"I am sure there are many people who like me are leaving the armed forces shortly and considering a career in the private security sector. This will bring you to the task of which training provider you entrust your valuable resettlement time and grant with I was in this position and had short listed 3 reputable companies, with G4S amongst them. Someone I know completed the course and highly recommended them to me, and respecting his judgement, swayed it for me I can honestly say without reservation that the course was excellent, the instructors, all who have very impressive military ( SF) backgrounds, but more importantly have huge industry experience in the private sector, and add to the mandatory SIA criteria with real life experience and expertise. The instruction is pitched at the right level, and injected with enough humour to make the lessons as enjoyable as informative.

"I would like to thank all Phoenix staff for highly professional approach and care they gave us. Despite the fact that I got couple of years hostile commercial experience within CP - both Iraq and Afghanistan (I am ex-SF) - I must say everyone can learn something new from the Phoenix course. Phoenix instructors have my full respect for their knowledge. It is really visible that the guys speak from a lot of years of practical experience.

I can highly recommend the course to all of you who want to join the CP business. The Phoenix course give you a real idea what is CP job about. This is a very wise investment in future CP career - for both hostile and non-hostile. Once more many thanks both Phoenix staff and students on the course. All guys were very supportive, friendly and created excellent 3 weeks atmosphere." (Overseas Student)
