Over the first four days of the final course, students will individually and as a team, plan and prepare to execute a full-scale close protection detail that spans across a two-state region on the final day. From the sixth-busiest international airport to smaller executive airports and helicopter landing pads, from some of the Charlotte area's most exclusive real estate to top-rated executive offices and all points in between, student's will work on multiple reality-based scenarios that culminate in the final exercise. This full-scale operational detail, which features role-players and hostile forces, helps students to bring together all aspects of the course to create the most realistic learning experience possible.

Solo Protection Agent- Part 3

Upon successful completion of the first two phases of the Solo Protection Agent training series, students enter the final phase of the course, which is an intense 5-day, 40+ hour course that covers multiple real world venues. Tremendous time is spent working with students to perfect surveillance and counter-surveillance skills, intelligence gathering means, and how to utilize the wealth of information gathered to their advantage. Students will work with a certified critical care specialist as they go through an emergency medical care course to learn lifesaving skills that can be effectively carried out under the harshest conditions. 

Students will also spend a day learning gun-handling skills specific to close protection work while working solo. These skills are crucial to completing successful operations if the use of lethal force is required. Various training aspects of the national Law Enforcement D.R.A.W. School Firearms Training program will be used to help students shoot faster and more accurately while working with a client. Students will also spend time perfecting their hand-to-hand combat skills by working with an Israeli-trained instructor. Special focus on vehicle operations and driving skills will also be learned in controlled and real-world settings.
