Executive Protection Training Tampa

ESS Global Executive Protection Training June 24-27If you are serious about Executive Protection Training, you should know it differs significantly from;

  • VIP Protection Training
  • Close Protection Training
  • Bodyguard Training
  • Celebrity Protection Training
  • etc…

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.

There is no such thing as an Executive Protection “Certification” or “Degree”

Executive Protection Training Tampa June 24-26 call ESSIf you are considering a career in the rapidly growing executive 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.

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, we are the only Protection School in Florida that is D.O.E. approved and certified for executive protection training. 

Come train with the best!
