Why Taking Executive Protection Training

The course will teach you how to protect a Principal/VIP within the global corporate environment by applying a proactive and risk-based approach.

If you are seeking a realistic and high-level bodyguard training that will equip you with core skills to embark on a career in the private close protection industry as a capable Executive Protection Operative, our 28-day Executive Protection Training Course fits the bill.

The unpredictability of terrorizing events has kept people on alert and wary of threats to their safety and well-being. Specific threats and a general sense of anxiety are causing more people to seek close protection services to protect them, their business, and assets in case of peril; because of this increased demand, greater emphasis is being placed on highly skilled protection specialists. The required level of competence for a professional bodyguard can be achieved only by undertaking an in-depth and well-structured training course; however, not so many training courses that fit the requirements are available in today's private industry.

As a top-tier provider of international protective and private investigative services, Nemesis Protection Global LLC has designed this unrivaled 28-day Executive Protection Training Program to teach you how to protect a Principal/VIP within the global corporate environment by applying a proactive and risk-based approach. The course is aimed at both experienced operators who intend to enhance their professional abilities and at those less experienced who want to enter executive protection.  

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning; they will ensure that all candidates are properly trained. Our company has adopted a training philosophy: train as you will operate—underpinning our training principles to deliver the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course for all candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will practice on the field most of the time to learn from your own mistakes and to develop sound judgment to make good decisions and choices.

The course is available to the commercial and government sectors and private individuals. The syllabus can be tailored to your organization's needs and delivered for your personnel at your location worldwide; the pricing of the bespoke training program depends on curriculum, duration, and location.

Is there a guaranteed job placement after the course?

In short, no, there is not; it is not ethical nor professional to guarantee you a job after the course because of many reasons; for example, whether a candidate is fit for a position or not, it's impossible to know in advance. Besides, market demand and client preferences are constantly changing and are hard to predict; however, we are an operational company, and when an opportunity arises, we prefer our graduates above all others. We can only promise a high level of training and ongoing post-course support.
