Bodyguard/Executive Protection Training in Tampa June 24-26 at ESS

At ESS Global Corp, we are aware that there are competitors who state that they offer similar Executive Protection Training Programs. However, our Executive Protection School in the only protection training facility certified and approved by the Department of Education in the state of Florida. Additionally, ESS Global uses proven methodology, derived from protective security operations, security consulting and of course, training, in over 60 countries around the world.  These operations have been conducted in threat environments ranging from “negligible” to “imminent “.

In addition to being the only D.O.E Certified Executive Protection School here in Florida, we are the only school offering active shooter training as part of our Bodyguard/Executive Protection training via the only VirTra Simulator in Tampa Florida and 1 of only 2 pubic installations in the country.  (UPDATE 12-23-16 ESS Global Executive Protection Training is now approved by the VA to accept Post 9-11 GI Bill Benefits)

One critical component of a quality training simulator is the ‘realism’ it provides. Real-world performance is often directly related to the realism and intensity of training. Said another way, the more realistic the training exercise, the more skills are transferable to a real-world situation. Thus, realism is critically important to any close combat tactical trainer. Threats during training – The stress of receiving return fire can be safely simulated with the Threat-Fire in the simulator.

Bodyguard/Executive Protection Training in Tampa june 24-26If you are considering a career in the rapidly growing executive protection/ bodyguard/ Close Protection field, know that in the protection industry, there is no EP “degree” (online or otherwise), no“license”, no state testing, and no state boards in most states. Executive Protection Training is usually lumped into the same category as Security Guards or Private Investigation and has little to do with either. Yet we see training to earn your “certified protection specialist credentials” advertised online. Unfortunately, nobody is regulating these schools, training centers and trainers. No government agency regulates or monitors what is taught and who is teaching it. Anybody off the street could be teaching you, and you could be paying for false or misleading information.

So the“protection credentials” you are handed at the end of the training is a piece of paper from the trainer and nothing more.

This is exactly where the ESS Global Executive Protection Training School differs. We are licensed and our curriculum and instructors are all regulated and monitored by the D.O.E., and, we are the only Protection School in Florida that is D.O.E. approved and certified for executive protection training.
