TRAINING METHODOLOGY (MOI) We believe in making training as realistic as possible. Classrooms are excellent places to learn the theory and wrap your head around a concept. That said, the only way to really LEARN how to do something is through practical application. Our courses are at a ratio of 40% classroom education to 60% hands on practical application of a learned skill. Crawl, walk, run. This is how we move. "Advanced Skills" are nothing more than properly learned and trained basic skills executed well under stress.
PREREQUISITES & QUALIFICATIONS ¤ Candidates must successfully pass a background check prior to being accepted into the course. (Any felonious convictions are an automatic disqualification, no exceptions.) ¤ Candidates are required to pay tuition in full two weeks prior to course. ¤ Candidates must sign indemnification in advance.
INSTRUCTORS Our instructor cadre consists of current tour security directors, former military spec ops, and current & prior law enforcement officers.
WHAT TO EXPECT ¤ All students will receive 12 hours per day of specialized security training, course materials and specified published manuals. ¤ Students who successfully complete the course will earn a Celebrity Protection course certificate. ¤ Distinguished graduates placing in the top of the class will be submitted to pool for potential future employment.
