In the absence of a national quantifiable standard for the training of state and local law enforcement in close protection, or an industry standard for civilian executive protection agents,
the ISA course managers decided the ISA EP training program would embrace the (IFPO) International Foundation for Protection Officers call for high standards for training and instructor
development and to be primarily governed by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice regulation related to Private Security Services Training Schools 6VAC20-173.

ISA no longer maintains articulation agreements with institutions of higher learning, as in past years. This is due to the almost constant changes that occur with procedures dictated
by the various accrediting entities. However, many colleges and universities continue to recognize ISA course work as transferable into a degree program. Students should contact
the college or university of his / her choice in order to apply for transfer credits.
