  • Internationally recognized and prestigious training

    I am looking for internationally recognized and prestigious training to build up my expertise about executive protection, CQB, shooting, and so on. To reduce costs I would like to host these training courses here in Spain because visiting the States increase prices a lot. I would be very grateful to you if you could provide me with information about courses and training internationally recognized and with enough prestige to be taken into account. I am Marine Corps and these courses would be addressed just for military and LE personnel.
    Thank you so much in advance for your help.

        Mohican, depending upon your MOS, the US Army and Air Force accept sister service applicants for their VIP protective training. Ft Wood, MO for Army and Lackland AFB, TX for Air Force. Additionally, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, GA provides training for executive protection details and they accept military service applicants. This latter training is normally for career military service personnel as younger applicants are lured away from the military for a civilian government law enforcement.
        Your education and training office should have all the necessary information.
        Enjoy the day,
        Bill

          If you want "internationally recognized and prestigious training" it is going to cost you money. Do you think you can go to Harvard at community college prices? I'm by no means trying to come across as rude, but if you want high quality training it will require high quality money.

            Sorry, I mistook

            I am sorry, I mistook, I checked Training Activities 2007 list from International Security Academy and the longer courses (4 weeks) are the Protection Concepts, Methods, Tactics&Emergency Tactical Response Methods course and the Israeli Counter Terrorism Intelligence Gathering Concepts, Methods&Tactics, $12,999 each one. That's why I said it is a bit expensive, we are talking about nearly $13,000 for a 4 weeks course. But 2 weeks courses cost just 3.000 euro. There is a Protection Specialist course that lasts 8 weeks that price is not included, do you know how much it could cost?
            Besides course price you have to add $50-$70 per day as accomodation and all maintenance costs, so for a 14 days (2 weeks) course you have to add more than $1,000. And now you have to add trip expenses to reach Israel and return to your country. That is out of my budget at this moment, maybe in the near future, but first I have to save a few bucks (more than $5,000 for a 2 weeks course).
            As far as courses syllabus, does anybody have further info? I mean, rounds shot during the entire course, hours of the course, ...

              You're going to have to ask them these questions. Another program you may want to check out is ESI in Colorado http://www.esi-lifeforce.com. They are not international, but they've been around for several years.

                Much more than "several", in fact - and I believe they are pretty highly regarded.

                  If you want to get down to the brass tacks of the operation, they've been around since 1980.

                    Amazing

                    I have checked ESI website and I have got impressed by the so thorough courses they provide. It seems to be their courses are very good quality, a lot of learning and training hours, ... I would like very much to attend to their courses, but first I need to save some bucks. I hope in the future I could attend to some course.
                    Thanks a lot for the info.
