Executive Protection: The Fundamentals (VA/ILP Approved)

Executive Protection: The Fundamentals (VA/ILP Approved)

Regular price $3,750.00 Sale


The tactics, techniques, and procedures taught in this course are based upon proven Canadian Armed Forces methods.  The fundamentals rarely change for the modern security professional; whether working armed or unarmed, in permissive, semi-permissive, or hostile environments.  The skillful and proper application of protection fundamentals is what truly distinguishes the novice from the expert.

This course focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully operate as an unarmed protector in a permissive environment. 

This training has been deemed eligible for the Veterans Affairs Education and Training Benefit and CAF Educational Reimbursement (Skills Completion Program.)
