Executive Protection Training in Florida at ESS

the secret service started executive protection trainingWhile the basic premise of a bodyguard goes back hundreds, if not thousands of years, Executive Protection is a relatively new field in the protection industry. Executive Protection was started in the 1970’s by the United States Secret Service when they created the Executive Protection Service to guard visiting foreign dignitaries.
If you are considering a career in the rapidly growing executive protection field, know that in the protection industry, there is 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.
D.O.E. Approved executive protection trainingThis 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, only a select few elite schools are D.O.E. approved and certified for executive protection training. 
executive protection training - classroomThe bottom line is that D.O.E. Executive Protection Training has more in common with Secret Service techniques, than what “Joe’s Bodyguard Training” offers. Most bodyguards fresh out of school, will not be able to define or discuss basic processes central to Executive Protection training such as; Threat Assessment, Advance Tactics, Route Reconnaissance, Embus and Debus plans, Area Surveillance, Movement Safety, Situational Awareness, Defensive Driving and Evasion, Crowd Control, Vehicle Placement/Movement, and more.  Ask anyone in the Secret Service or Special Ops. Hands down it’s Executive Protection Training, with brains over brawn.
