Course Information

Since the origins of the secure transportation profession in the early 1970’s, and once the executive protection profession began to emerge a number of years later, the goal of mitigating potential security risks before an incident occurs has driven the demand for security professionals who are well versed in detecting potential threats before they become headline-grabbing security incidents.

This innovative, highly interactive three (3) day course consists of informative discussion modules and a series of hands-on, intensive practical exercises, designed and proven to provide the Security Driver or Solo Practitioner, as well as other protection professionals, an in-depth understanding of the art and science of surveillance detection.
