Executive Protection Advanced Course

Executive protection (EP), also known as close protection, refers to security measures taken to ensure the safety of VIPs. Celebrities, Executives, or other individuals may be exposed to elevated personal risk because of their employment, celebrity status, wealth, associations, or geographical location.

This is an advanced five (5) day course where participants learn to optimize their security situational awareness, develop operational plans, conduct route, and site surveys, run motorcade operations, perform foot formations and execute emergency immediate action procedures. Teamwork is the essential key to success and this course emphasizes it by culminating in a realistic street evade and recover scenario mission. This is a physically and mentally demanding course requiring long days and maximum student participation. Students should prepare accordingly.
