Our program is the first of its kind offered to revolutionize the traditional "bodyguard" position to one of PERSONAL PROTECTION SPECIALIST (P.P.S.). The impact upon the field has been obvious and gratifying. We are the premier program because we establish the standards and continue to improve upon them. The successful completion of this course is now included within many job descriptions for protective positions.
The objectives of our course include the preparation of personal protection specialists to perform their roles with the most contemporary knowledge and resources available; to assist each student to be capable of dealing with threats against, and actual attacks upon, those they are responsible for safeguarding; to inform every participant about their own particular strengths and weaknesses in a variety of skill and knowledge dimensions.
All program participants are screened prior to acceptance and must be mature, team-minded and willing to experience a moderate degree of fatigue while participating in the most acclaimed program available. Age and physical condition has not been a hindrance to students from ages 19 through 72. Individual initiative, self-reliance, and discretionary judgment are continuously emphasized under challenging conditions.
We emphasize close quarter and small team protection with more than 15 educators to assist.
The Executive Protection Institute’s program “Providing Executive Protection” is the only program that emphasizes personal/executive training. The Institute does not emphasize high-risk tactical training. Students are taught the skills and know-how to perform protective missions with high-profile CEO’s, dignitaries, diplomats, celebrities, and religious leaders. EPI graduates are continually requested internationally and by high-level domestic personnel.
The Executive Protection Institute’s program “Providing Executive Protection” includes all of your lodging (Double Occupancy, however you may request a single room for an additional fee) – Sunday through Saturday’s conclusion. It also includes two Socials/Banquets on Sunday and Friday evenings.
