The personal safety of government officials and key company executives has become an area of major concern to many governments and organizations around the world. These threats emanate from such diverse sources as terrorists, criminals and other extremist groups.
These threats whether of a physical or impending nature (damage to property, injury, kidnapping or murder) are liable to be carried out by those with criminal motives and by those engaged in blackmail or terrorist activities.
Past experience shows that a highly trained professional, having gained the appropriate experience, gives the VIP’s security agent the professional tools which will enable him to address the risks and take the necessary measures needed in order to protect the VIP.
The Academy is a comprehensive center whose aim is the establishment and implementation of training programs for security agents in the protection of VIPs and their environment whether home, office or vehicle, etc.
The training program is an exclusive one which emphasizes the practical and physical aspects needed by agents in the field. The main goal of the program is to prepare the agents in the analysis of threats to the VIP and in the preparation of the appropriate plan for the protection of the VIP wherever he or she may be.
The course includes a variety of tactical and surprise exercises which are designed to test the level of skills required by the agent.
