Why continue to train?

Why continue to train ?

ESS GLOBAL CORP. has a core value of Excellence.  It means, “the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.”  We continue to get better when we forge ourselves in the fires of training.  Whether physical or mental training, the body must be re-calibrated to perform at its best.

“What you aim at determines what you see.”



Do you Need to train ?


This week kicks off September’s combat pistol and Third Party Shooting.  This class has received rave reviews from so many of our students. One of our personal favorites :

Colonel Myron Fonsake,  “I learned more in this three days of shooting than in a career in Law enforcement and Military Services.”

This course will challenge any shooter and any skill level. We focus on the basics and drill the fundamentals until they become muscle memory.  This course gets proven results.  We give a test at the beginning of the course and  re-test at the end of the course and 92% of people have dramatic improvement.

Look forward to training with you soon!

How to Choose the Best Executive Protection Course

First you need to choose the school. Here is where it is important to understand that when choosing a school, you need to be more aware of the certifications the SCHOOL has, and NOT the “certifications’ they hand you at the end of the course. This provides you a far better insight as to the quality of the training you will receive.
How many other security “schools” have D.O.E. approval and can also accept Veteran Benefits here in Florida?
