5 Day advanced Surveillance course

course overview

The 5 Day Advanced Surveillance Course was initially written to train current security staff of Vanquish Security to enable them to conduct covert surveillance ops to the high standards set out by the company.

Word spread quickly and before we knew it, Vanquish had set up a special training division, later to become Vanquish Training Academy, to take on all applicants who wanted to attend the highly demanding advanced surveillance course.

Michael Chandler who wrote the course, later went on to publish The Real Guide to Surveillance which sells to aspiring security & surveillance operatives worldwide.

​People still come from all over the globe to attend this advanced covert surveillance course in the knowledge that it is only held 3 times every year.

Vanquish Investigation Services only recruit those who have passed one of our training courses.
