GI Bill Approved Bodyguard Training - West Virginia
The first thing to know - in the security industry, VIP Protection, Executive Protection, Close Protection and Bodyguard all are used interchangeably.
There are no reliable numbers on the growth of executive protection since the U.S. Department of Labor lumps it into the "security guard" category. That being said, most security experts agree that since the late 80's, Executive Protection has expanded at a rapid pace that also mirrors the same period during which the top 1 percent of US earners nearly tripled their annual income. Additionally, we have also seen the rise of "real time" social media that can threaten a CEO/VIP/Celebrity in the blink of an eye.
Additionally, should you decide to pursue a career in the executive/ close protection industry, in most cases, there are no state or national certifications. There is if you want to cut hair, but not if you are protecting someone from bodily harm.
Also, keep in mind there are some certifications that are associated with Executive Protection such as (Red Cross) First Aid CPR or ASP (Flashlight or Baton Training) or a state license to carry a concealed weapon. Those are real certifications.
Without state "certification", it's important for you to understand that the close protection "certifications" you receive are from the school, not any governing body.
For that reason, it's vital that you choose a close protection training based on the school's certifications, not the "certifications" they have waiting for you after you pay.
It's more important for you to investigate the certifications the school has as this provides you far better insight as to the quality and relevance of the training.
In addition to being certified by both the VA and the D.O.E., ESS Global, with security operations in over 60 countries, provides the most relevant close protection training available in the U.S.
