What People are Saying


Very clear and concise training for all levels of capability. Carl Sonnen and his team have taught me well and allowed me to venture into a new career and new stage of my life.


 Brilliant course because of Carl, had plenty of time for us and went through everything clearly. 



Fantastic, friendly training provider.
With a wide range of knowledge regarding various courses.
Learning with Carl has always benefited me.
Provided me all relevant information and qualifications i needed to succeed within the sector of event security.


 I have been on a lot of courses within my working life 32 years ! And I must say Carl was without exception the very best facilitator I have ever had. It was very clear he was talking about a subject he new inside out, he never faulted once, he made us LOL! Seeing as the course was SO intense (lots to learn in a short time) the mixture of listening & laughing was spot on!
And I have just heard I passed ….. hand on heart I thought I would have to retake one if not two modules, I was very unsure when I arrived, I have no clue how you did it Carl but THANK YOU SO MUCH!


 What a great course. Great for both old hands and new pit staff. Definitely booking more courses with Invictus 


MD - Security and Event Solutions

I used Invictus for gaining my SIA licence and found the trainer very helpful and easy to work with which is important. I also feel more then satisfied with the service provided and I would happily recommend others using them.


 Carl is a great trainer, very knowledgeable and patient 


 I wouldn’t trust anybody else to deliver training, or ensure my events remain safe and secure.

The team have a wealth of experience that they are only too willing to use to offer a client the best possible experience and service.


 Carl has delivered both my SIA licence and some personal protection training. I can not recommend Invictus enough. Very professional and an expert in his field. Thank you Carl and Invictus. 

PETER McCARTHY - MD Direct First Aid

 First class training supplied with huge amounts of detail and care. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.


 Carl is a brilliant trainer he is well skilled in his knolage (Sic) of the industry
The training was clear and well executed with a lot of practical advice
This course was most informative and nothing was to much trouble
Would recommend to anyone who needs to upskill or anyone who is new to the industry
Cheers Carl 


 So it’s always hard to find physical intervention skills that suit your style, personality and methods of working along with what works with your hight, weight and body build..

My methods are focuses on the safety and welfare side of security and I often find myself alone working in very high escalated situations. I often fear that skills I learnt over the years may not be the best reflexion (sic) of methods and may even put my job, myself or the offender at high risk of injury or possibly death. 

Most courses and companies stick to a text book or skills that work for themselves, today I booked a course with Carl and we managed to find, practice and test skills that would suit me.

Not only did we slowly learn them but we even put them to the full test to see if my personal flight, fight or freeze mode could successful and safety apply them.

I feel that I am now able to complete duties knowing that I can safety and effectively deal with whatever heads my way

Thank you Carl


 I have recently completed my pit training course with Invictus training. I would recommend by Katie and Carl as trainers, so are both friendly, down to earth and most importantly very knowledgeable about the subject matter in hand. 


 Amazing trainer has a lot of time for people and very well presented. He also adapts his teaching to the student(s) 

MATT BRITTON - MD Britton Security

I have been to a couple of courses with Carl and KT at Invictus. I can say without a doubt these are some of the most interactive and easy to understand courses I’ve been on. Not sure how but they manage to tailor the learning to everybody’s needs and get a good end result. Thoroughly enjoyable, well structured and fantastically run. Great course and great trainers!! 


 I have attended many courses, experienced many instructors, but this one topped it. Carl was recommended to me to carry out some training for me and my team. Just had a fantastic 4 days training, delivered by an excellent instructor. Look forward to arranging more courses in the future. Massive thanks to all involved. 

PAUL WHITTON - Security Manager - Vector Aerospace

 I recently attended the Evacuation Chair Training . Very interesting course. Very knowledgeable Trainers. Not only the theory, but the practical side of it. I would definitely recommend Invictus Training for anyone who looking to improve their skills in the Security Industry. Thank you Karl, Alan and KT. 



A first rate instructor - varied and interesting ideas made classes enjoyable, challenging and fun - really enjoyed those days


 Had a days training with Carl, Alan and KT today and it was first rate. Hope our guys will look in to arranging some refresher training as working in a hospital environment we need to make sure we are top of our game.


 Undertook physical intervention training with Carl. A first class trainer who delivered the course in a practical and sensible way that made me feel entirely at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend Carl as a trainer. 


 I did my door supervisor training with Carl last week I really enjoyed the course Carl is a really good at his job and a great guy . Would recommend Invictus training to everybody 

 Carl's experience and approach to training made me confident in my ability to know what was expected of me, both for the course and later when working within the industry. 


 Carl was the best trainer I ever had. I loved his classes, they were excellent, extremely hard and a little vomit inducing . Only wished he lived closer, maybe he will move to Wales and I can get fit again
