Hello.

I am a Certified Protection Officer. Also I am a security team leader in a Hospital. I'm looking toward Executive protection as a career. In my research so far, the best school I've found is "Executive Security International" based out of Colorado.

http://www.esi-lifeforce.com

They offer a ten month course that seems to be the most comprehensive and well respected in the field. I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of this school, or knows of any other good schools teaching executive protection. Can never have too many opinions.

Thanks for your posts.

I am going to look into Bodyguard Training International. They offer both a 5 day and 10 day course. As I am former Military and former Deputy Sheriff, this would add missing components to my skillsets. As of yet, I have not checked the school out, nor checked to see how the training is viewed in the EP community. 10 day's I can pull off..10 weeks I can't.

If you find a way to see what the industry views as good schools, I am all ears.

Somehow I thought there was a school in VA that included evasive driving.

From what I have heard, ESI is one of the premier facilities for security training. That is looking at it from their overall rep.

just posting a questin here - how realistic is it for a private company to offer training that is serious enough to cover all the bases for somebody without LEO or military training? I would think that it would be almost impossible for a person without government sponsered training to get to the top of this field.

what are your feelings on this?

Well, considering many of the people that engineer these programs are former law enforcement trainers, and the fact that there is a ton of $$$ to be made training private and personal security, it is probably pretty realistic as far as what the company can provide.

Nice post Old Man. Heh heh.

Unfortunatly it is very true with some, perhaps even the majority of security companies these days. Untrained, uncertified, unlicensed, underpaid people in uniform. This in turn creates guards who have little desire or knowledge to do their job.

They give the industry and actual Certified Protection Officers a black eye. Insurance companies require many facilities commercial and industrial to have security. Or offer a discount in insurance rates to facilities that do. The facilities then in turn hire the cheapist, rinky dink companys to fill this role. This trend is only going to continue. I fear what I have come to call the "McGuard" is here to stay.

ESI is probably one of the best. There is a week class offered by a guy named Kobetz. He has written several books on this topic.

My question is this? How difficult is it to break into this profession. From the research and discussion that I've had with some people this is a very difficult profession to earn a living in and to find work. I'd like to hear others opinion on this matter as well.
