Executive Protection Training Approved by VA to Accept GI Bill Benefits – ESS

3 Valid Reasons to Register for Executive Protection Training at ESS Global

  • Approved by the VA to accept GI Bill Benefits – As of December 23, 2016, ESS Global is a VA approved training facility and can accept GI Bill Benefits. This makes us one of only 3 known Executive Protection Schools approved for GI Bill Benefits in the U.S. at that time. ‘‘GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.”

This may matter to you.

  • D.O.E Approved Executive Protection Training – Again, we are one of only two known schools that have been approved by the D.O.E. In most every state, there is no oversight, no boards, no licenses. So no one oversees the trainers or what is being taught. With Department of Education oversight, you know the trainers and curriculum have had another set of eyes approve the training and the trainers.

This protection is for you.

  • Real World Experience – In the world of close protection training, sometimes a school is just that. A school. They may have been active at one point, but not now. ESS Global has current real world experience in over 60 countries, and at any given moment is currently on detail, protecting someone from harm.

And this matters to everyone.
