About The Course
‘London Fam’ as it is known is the key knowledge based course for those working in the London UK Circuit both drivers and protection officers .
This course is aimed at commercial close protection officers, protection drivers and security chauffeurs. 97% of all protection tasks in the UK are based in London. Close protection officers and drivers need enhanced London knowledge to operate effectively.
The aim of this course is to equip students with professional understanding and a knowledge of working in Central London including the finest hotels, restaurants and clubs likely to be frequented by clients, as well as regulations for working in London. Clients are likely to expect their protection and driving teams to know their way around and not need instruction from them on where to go or how to book tables at venues that are already full.
The course includes discussion of the operational implications, and soft skills required, for working discretely alongside other clients’ protection teams and members of the public places such as luxury hotels.
The course also involves a tour of the most common operating areas and geographic mapping for satellite navigation systems. The course comes with full course materials as well as a follow-on learning package.
The new Public Carriage Office (PCO) licensing requirements are built into the course and the PCO will be on hand for applications for accelerated London PCO licence applications.
Course handouts and Polaris’ own operational aide memoires are provided to students on this course.
