IST Academy Specialist security training for Close Protection SIA approved

Intelligent Security Training Academy and Taken Solutions  have teamed up to create the Nanny’s Awareness, Security & Protection (ASP) Course.

The course is a brand new concept and will be running twice in 2019.

The first 3 bookings will receive a 20% discount on the course fee, saving £250!

Courses are kept to a maximum of 9 students, so book early to avoid disappointment.


Nannies are in a unique position, being trusted explicitly with the care and safety of someone else’s child or children.

They can live extremely close with the family and be accepted in the family’s inner circle.


Perhaps you’re a nanny or you employ a nanny; either way it can be agreed, the safety of the children is paramount.

Our Nanny’s ‘A.S.P’ Course is designed to prepare the nanny for the threats of the modern world. Ultimately, good preparation and training will reduce the risk to both the nanny and the children.

Our 5 day course covers a wide range of subjects, both practical and theory; all designed to prepare and build confidence in the individual.

The tempo and manner of the course is relaxed yet structured.

It is not a boot camp, but training designed for the real world.

Our instructors come from a wide background; bringing together elements of the military, close protection, medical training, martial arts and children’s education.

The course additionally offers a great opportunity for continued professional development, or to help diversify your CV to improve employment opportunities.
