Our personnel come from diverse backgrounds and collectively provide substantive experience in executive protection, counter-terrorism, counter-kidnap, security systems design as well as logistics and operational risk management fields.

All our security personnel have successfully passed an intensive selection process that includes background checks, psychometric evaluation, and an assessment of ‘hard’ skills including driving, physical fitness and proficiency in armed and unarmed protection skills as well as medical skill proficiency. We only recruit staff that have proven competency, both physically and mentally, to deal with the ever changing threats and challenges faced in global environments. Our staff have all proven themselves time and time again, through field experience in challenging or hostile environments.


All protective personnel employed by the Arcfyre Group are qualified according to international standards in VIP Protection and are registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority (PSIRA). However, we believe that industry best practice standards alone are not sufficient in today’s world, and therefore have set the benchmark at new levels for our personnel. This is reflected in the fact that the Arcfyre Group invests significantly in continual in-house training of our personnel, utilising carefully researched training material and methods to ensure that all personnel maintain peak physical fitness and mental readiness.

Our in-house training programme includes:
  • A customised wellness program for protective agents.
  • Mandatory Job specific training provided every weekend
  • Compulsory gym activities.
  • Quarterly assessments of protective related skills.
  • Specialised input in protective intelligence, threat assessment and advanced tactics.
