Theories of executive protection - small unit tactics, 1 to 2 men teams


 If you’re looking for executive protection training you will find a number of places that do a very good job but one vulnerability that we’ve found in various agents training jackets is simply the absence of training on small unit tactics. Many of the courses out there are State Department or Secret Service-centric when the reality of the private security industry is that you will probably be on your own or maybe working with one other agent at a time. This course is designed to give the practitioner an edge in those all too common scenarios when you are working with fewer assets than you are accustomed to.
