HOME   /   ABOUT US

The Savant Training Team has unsurpassed verifiable experience in providing cross-spectrum training, risk consultancy and security to high-value clients, including; Ministers, Diplomats, high-ranking US Military Commanders, Engineers, Financial markets, Businessmen, Media Outlets, Law Enforcement Agencies, OGD, NGO’s, Celebrities, Charities and Judges.

We pride ourselves on providing well-structured, fit for purpose and up-to- date security related training packages delivered by former teeth-arm Soldiers, Counter- Terrorism Police and SF Operatives with vast operational, ground truth experience across the world’s most challenging environments and hot-spots. We have worked and instructed at UK ministerial level, have conducted threat-replication operations against UK national infrastructure and advised on matters relating to UK national security. We have also conducted Risk-Management, Investigations, Security-Assessments and Surveys, within intelligence related operations for multinational intelligence agencies.

 

Our considerable personal and collective experience and expertise has also enabled us to mitigate potential risks, make instant evaluations and implement rapid direct action that has successfully averted life-threatening situations. As a by-product of this, all Savant graduates will know they have received training imparted by the best and most operationally current Instructor/Operators within the security sector.

In addition, our Instructors are unique in that we have the capability to include appreciation for mind-set and understand metabolic response processes when faced with high pressure situations. Any scenario that does not account for these human risk factors (HSG48) is simply failing to provide realistic training.  This ensures the training that is being given is relevant, effective and legally robust.
