You will become a specialist in all facets of Force Protection, which range from dismounted close combat tactics and fieldcraft to security and understanding how air operations are delivered. Learning how to operate and employ a variety of weapons and surveillance systems, you will provide specialist advice and planning to enable the safe conduct of air operations both at home and overseas.
