Training security service
The aim of our training in security services is to prepare our participants for all conceivable dangers that may arise in the performance of their duties in a security service, to increase their ability to perceive potential problems and to anchor danger defense reactions so strongly in the subconscious that they can be called up intuitively and spontaneously in the event of danger.

Where are our graduates employed?
After successfully completing their training in security services, our graduates are offered a wide range of job opportunities. Typical industries in which our security specialists can be found include property, asset and personal protection companies, airport operations, train stations and transport companies, as well as security consulting service providers. People, businesses, facilities and assets are subject to their personal protection.
Specialist for protection and security – specifically trained for increasing requirements
In 2021, in view of ever-increasing requirements and demand, we will be offering targeted, in-depth training to protection and security specialists. Our subsidized training and continuing education programs for protection and security specialists are in high demand among men and women who are retiring from the military or who have at least two years of experience in the security industry. These professional groups can also complete the course in a shortened form, which will all be examined individually at the beginning. This training security service is also open for other people. Anyone who has finished school and has at least two years of work experience (in any profession) is also welcome to enroll in this training. This is a recognized training occupation according to the Vocational Training Act (BBiG).
Concrete situations that require specialists for protection and security
A specialist for protection and security must be able to protect people, values and buildings or factory premises from danger. This includes, for example, the security service of organizers of large demos or concerts as well as the chauffeur service for a large entrepreneur. You don’t have to be Superman to get a foothold in these fields, but a certain Superman gene unites all those who have dedicated themselves to the security industry. What may come across as a bit casual at this point is the result of hard training and in-depth education, because it’s not some inherited superpowers that security professionals have. We will go into more detail about the content of security training below. In the following, we first present a few selected purely theoretical yet realistic situations in which security professionals are absolutely necessary.
Berlin. Die Deutsche Bahn AG
Deutsche Bahn AG in Berlin wants to officially present the new Berlin Central Station. Both political VIPs and members of the press are invited. Everything is to take an orderly course, the safety of the guests is to be guaranteed. Among other things, the security service will ensure that everything runs smoothly. It checks people at the entrances and exits and prevents uninvited guests from disrupting the event. If someone should try to force their way in, the security mechanisms that have been internalized during training are put into action.
Wackersdorf. BMW plant celebrates anniversary of location
The Wackersdorf plant of the Bayerische Motorenwerke (BMW) in Wackersdorf is celebrating its 30th anniversary and wants to celebrate this together with the entire workforce and their families – on the plant premises. Three music groups have been organized, there will be guided tours of the plant for anyone interested, and a colorful program for children has also been prepared. Wherever a lot of people come and go, there is always potential for dangerous situations. It is the task of the security personnel in industrial plant protection to check and, if possible, eliminate these. This area is also of interest to our graduates of the training program for safety and security specialists.
Nuremberg. Personal security for a protection family from the German industry
Envy is a strong emotion and can take on criminal excesses in many people. A protection and security specialist can also take on the task of providing personal protection for a protective family from German industry, for example. In this context, customer and service orientation is of paramount importance. Protection and security techniques, situation assessment and management, unarmed self-defense as well as the safe handling of weapons, data protection, emergency and crisis management as well as, among other things, self-protection are vital in this activity and are trained most carefully at TACFIS.
Munich. Rammstein concert at the Olympiastadion
The band Rammstein performs at the sold-out Olympiastadion in Munich. Guests arrive at the Olympic site hours in advance. The band is not only extremely popular, they are also known for their spectacular fire shows. The company’s own security is responsible for the safety of the band, the guests and for ensuring that everything runs smoothly. This is also a job for which the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) examination adequately prepares the security specialists.
Hamburg-Eppendorf, Schlemmer Markt Müller, Troplowitzstraße
In the past few days, goods have repeatedly been stolen. The store manager assumes that the goods have been stolen and has called in a security specialist to track down potential thieves as inconspicuously as possible and to apprehend and detain them until the police arrive.
Cham (Upper Palatinate). WELTKONZERN AG is looking for a professional door service for the site
Even at a somewhat remote branch, the same security standards apply as everywhere else, even in a listed major corporation such as the exemplary Weltkonzern AG. For the Cham site in eastern Bavaria (Upper Palatinate), the company is looking for a reliable specialist for protection and security for gate duty at the entrances and exits of the plant. Duties include monitoring, controlling and regulating the movement of people, vehicles and goods. Lost property must be handled, weighing, telephone and pilot services must be performed, and the surrounding area must be monitored for events (alarm service). It is not only professional and social competence that count here, but also external appearance, since as a gate attendant you are the first person visitors come into contact with – the business card of the company in question, so to speak.
The security service is extremely versatile. We make you saddle fit for the test
The demands on security personnel are constantly increasing and well-trained security specialists are in ever greater demand. In the training to become a specialist for protection and security, we prepare the participants for the challenges.
