This allows Ambrey to provide City &Guilds certified courses to its Indian MSO’s. It means that all of Ambrey’s guards, whether Indian or British, undergo the exact same training course and exam, ensuring that all MSO’s are trained to the same standard. Ambrey currently have 140 Indian MSO’s, the vast majority of whom have been certified to the International C&G standard with the rest being trained in the coming weeks. Ambrey already has UK City & Guilds status, the first PMSC to achieve this in June 2013 and this international accreditation reinforces the fast growing list of training courses that Ambrey delivers.

Over the last 20 years alone, more than 20 million learners received a City & Guilds certificate from over 10,000 approved training organisations around the world, including Ambrey Training.
Mick Clifford, Director of Ambrey Training, said, “International accreditation from Manipal City & Guilds is an important achievement for the company, allowing us to maintain the same standard of training and qualification throughout our MSO pool, be they UK or mixed nationality. Ambrey Training is the first private security training company to achieve this and demonstrates our commitment to the industry and our clients in producing highly trained individuals in risk management.”
John Thompson, Managing Director, Ambrey Risk, said, “The ability to provide a choice of MSO to our clients is very important to Ambrey’s business. To have them all qualified to an international standard really provides the assurance that an Ambrey MSO, UK or international has received the same training and will uphold the same high standards of service that we deliver throughout the Ambrey Group.”
