Approved training for private activities of protection of vessels

KARGUS SEA INTERCONNECTION (KSI), Approved Training Centre for Maritime Security, Recognized Security Organization and subsidiary of the holding GROUPE PRORISK, has been operating since 2005 in the field of maritime and port security.

KSI has been invited to participate in 2013-2014 to a working group for drafting the French law on private activities of protection of vessels and its implementing decrees.

In order to contribute to the fight against acts of piracy, the French government has approved KSI to provide these professional trainings:

  • Training of executives of private companies involved in vessel protection
  • Training of operators employed by private companies of protection of vessels
  • Refresher training of the competence “use of staffing weapon” of the technical module defined in the Article 1 of the French Decree of January 7, 2015

This approval is the first of its kind and formalizes the training that KSI provides for three years to vessel protection agents that can now work on vessels flying the French flag. The organization of previous courses “PCASP” (Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel) has trained over 100 trainees since 2012.
