School of Protective Services

Beginning in Part 2, students will begin performing various exercises in the field at multiple venues while being observed by instructors. Scenarios are generated and given to students who must then plan the protective detail for the given area. Some aspects of these exercises are individual, while other aspects are team-based. Students will work their way through each phase of the planning and intelligence gathering phase and then present their findings in group discussions. Intelligence gathered during Part 2 will also be used during Part 3 of the course so the importance of updated intelligence gathering is learned. The course finishes with a small scale scenario-based protective detail.

To Be Announced

Protection agents who are working in a solo capacity do not have access to the resources of a multi-person team when working. Therefore, they must serve several roles at the same time and possess the knowledge to prioritize the sequence of the operation so it runs smoothly. This demands training in real world settings where students can be tested and learn the finer details of the trade. Part 2 adds additional skills and exercises such intelligence gathering, surveillance techniques, hand-to-hand time and distance techniques (Krav Maga) and firearms training.
