Welcome to HASP Training

Meet the Instructors

The Team consists of both security and medical professionals, all are drawn from the British Army and have a wealth of operational experience as well as a solid base of teaching to both military and civilian audiences.  We don't use military jargon and our aim is to “Prepare Not Scare”.   

We believe that passion for the subject and a good sense of humour are key ingredients in choosing an Instructor.  Our Instructors are educated and well travelled, both in uniform and out of it, they possess a wealth of operational experience, two of the team trained as teachers so the quality of instruction is high. 


Rupert Godesen - Managing Director

Rupert is our Managing Director, he trained correspondents and journalists from the BBC for six years before setting up HASP Training. He is also the author of "Travelling Safely Overseas" which is out as an eBook.

Stuart Wilson - Chief Medical Instructor

Stuart served in the Regular Army for twenty three years followed by five years in the Army Reserve, much of his time teaching and instructing in various training wings.   Stuart uses this wealth of operational experience to add life and colour to his medical training.

He firmly believes that clients get the most out of the training by learning and then practising.  PowerPoint and note taking are followed by lots and lots of practical. At the end of each course delegates get the opportunity to take home the Medical Packs they trained on (picture of the Med pack on the Benefits page) and everyone who completes the day and can demonstrate that they can perform Basic Life Support gets an Emergency First Certificate as standard.

Steve Inglis- Security Instructor

Steve served in the British Army for twelve years on operations and exercises around the world. Since leaving the Armed Forces he has worked in the security industry as a trainer applying his broad experience to both the private sector and the international media.

Steve and Rupert became friends while working together training the BBC.  HASP’s courses are normally concluded with a demanding practical scenario, where delegates get to put their new skills to use in a controlled environment.

Steve choreographs and conducts these for HASP, he goes to great lengths to make them challenging, different and relevant.  Sometimes they're such a guarded secret that even his fellow instructors don’t know what he has in store.
