No. There is no “formal” physical exercise sessions during the course; no-one is gonna drag you outta bed at 4am to go on an 8-miler. However, the course is physically demanding enough, that a good level of fitness is definitely required.
No. We have always believed that firearms/tactics training should not be “qualification driven” and should be about training for “trainings’ sake” and not “training for a piece of paper”. However, our courses are recognized as “best practice” by a number of leading Private Security Companies (PSC) and we can, when requested, provide a Go Noisy certificate of weapons competency, should a PSC request it from you. We are also in the process of having our courses accredited for Continuing Personal development (CPD) purposes.
