Changes for IAPPA-Accredited Courses in the Middle East



IAPPA’s Executive Director for the Middle East and one of the most reputable security experts worldwide announced last week that he will be working on his own after years serving the CONSEC Group of Companies in the Middle East and Australia.


Charles Mallice is probably one of the best known personalities in the security world. Former British Army Combat Engineer, Charles was a long-time Consultant and Trainer for the US Military in several countries and ended up moving to the United Arab Emirates 17 years ago.


The list of high-profile jobs the Brit has performed is impressive, from security management projects with larger organizations such as Etihad, police and armed forces training in all continents, to heading the security of large events such the HSBC Golf Tournament. In Close Protection, besides having trained some of the most reputable agents around, Charles has managed VIP protection for a long list of celebrities, sports teams and corporate executives.


Matching a new phase in his life, Charles Mallice will continue his activities in the United Emirates, focusing more on consulting jobs and project-based assignments, but still conducting in-house and on-demand IAPPA-accredited trainings. With this step, Charles himself will become automatically a fully accredited institution to offer courses, trainings, and consulting services certified by the International Association of Personal Protection Agents.


Two highlights are his one-of-a-kind Female Close Protection Agent training as well as our online course IED Awareness for Private Security.
