3-Day Corporate Security Training Program

The World Protection Group will provide 3-days of Executive Protection Training involving classroom technique (80%) and practical exercises (20%).  The objective is to create a consistent body of knowledge around the area of Executive Protection within the security management team. The course will focus on Executive Protection techniques based on the U.S. Secret Service-method of providing protection and will specifically address international travel safety, large international events, and small high profile events in various risk scenarios (high, medium, low).

The class will be team-taught by two instructors who bring diverse strengths and experiences to the training.  But also create a good dynamic in the classroom and break up the monotony of a single speaker during the course of an 8-10 hour day.

The class will primarily focus on institutional techniques that will weave in 2-3 hours of practical exercises over the course of the three days. In addition, the methods will further integrate support for team-building engagements.
