Executive protection (EP), also known as close protection or personal protection, refers to security measures taken to ensure the safety of VIPs or other individuals who may be exposed to some personal risk because of their employment, celebrity status, wealth, associations or geographical location.
Security is a legitimate concern for politicians, celebrities and high-profile executives. These days, many turn to executive protection professionals to navigate threats and keep them out of harm's way. These protectors come from diverse backgrounds; some have law enforcement or military experience, others do not. Training continues to be essential, especially now when executive protection professionals are being asked to do more with less.
At the Executive Protection Institute, we encourage our students to be proactive, cater to the client’s needs, and to avoid problems and threats. You will leave EPI knowing how to prevent and handle difficult situations, accidents, medical emergencies and deliberate attacks. We focus on prevention, advance planning and assessments in each of our Executive Protection related training platforms. EPI has many courses offerings designed to meet your individual training needs ranging from online webinars, to hands-on reality-based inclusive courses:
