About Us


The ISA Training Division was established&nbspEducation, Training & Accreditation

 The ISA Training Division was established in 2016 with oversight of all our programs of instruction, accreditation, and college or university recognition. All training conducted here in the United States and internationally falls into this division. Its mission is to provide world-class fully accredited specialized training to law enforcement, the military, and private & corporate security organizations.


In 2011 ISA conducted its first training program for law enforcement, a 50-hour dignitary protection course focused on the security of local and state elected officials. Requested by sheriff’s deputies and local officers after the assassination attempt of Congresswoman Gabriel Gifford’s in Arizona, it was held in Blacksburg Virginia and we trained over 20 officers and deputies.

Community Service

Domestic Violence Action Network

ISA is the parent organization behind the Domestic Violence Action Network.

This network also helps raise money for our DV partners so they can continue to serve those in need.
