Our private security courses all have the same goal – to not only provide knowledge and skill for students to make informed security protection decisions but also to assist your business to stay legal and up to date.

The proficiency training course for business purposes is an intermediate-level course specifically for persons who have already completed the proficiency training for civil purposes and who use firearms in a work-related environment. This course must be completed by individuals who want to achieve the following:

Apply for a job that requires a firearm, such as a security officer, cash-in-transit guard and personal protection bodyguard
Apply for a job that requires firearm knowledge, E.G a clerk in a firearm shop

All business purpose courses are PFTC and SASSETA accredited and are intended to give persons a higher level of training. This is also the minimum training level legally required in South Africa for a person to be issued with a company firearm.  Private Security Compulsory Annual Competency compliance. Annual compliance regulation 21 business use compliance refresher training and competency compliance testing professionally conducted for you!

Western Province Firearms Training School utilizes a variety of progressive instructional techniques for all of our classes, including classroom discussion, video presentations, simulations, and hands-on experience. Small class sizes will give you extra one-on-one time with instructors and classes for different skill levels will encourage a comfortable learning atmosphere.

By completing any of the courses offered, you will become competent in the use and disciplines of firearms for business use. A competency certificate is issued to successful candidates and these are recognised by the SAPS as an accredited training provider certificate. You are also issued a Statement of Results from the PFTC. These certificates are a requirement from the SAPS to be issued with a SAPS Competency Certificate to possess a firearm and also a prerequisite for the application for a firearm licence.

Upon payment we will supply the necessary training manuals in order for you to complete the theoretical work contained therein. This involves homework in the form of an open-book test on the handle & use of the chosen firearm’s unit standard for business purposes.

Please note that you must have already completed the proficiency course for civil purposes before you can complete the business purposes course.

When you return this homework, an appointment will be scheduled for the proficiency exam.

On the day you will have to complete a closed-book test and then, on successful completion, you will receive the practical firearm training.
