Dignitary and Executive Protection Specialist Course

April 20, 2020 @ 12:00 am - April 26, 2020 @ 11:59 pm UTC+0


The Dignitary and Executive Protection Specialist Course (ISA DPP 101) is a fully accredited training program for law enforcement and private security endorsed by the International Foundation for Protection Officers.

This program provides specialized training to students who will conduct or support dignitary/executive protective service operations as a single agent or as part of a larger protective detail for elected officials, political appointees, members of the court, corporate executive-level leaders and private individuals of wealth or other risk factors who are potential targets of terrorism and/or criminal acts.

June 26th, 2018 Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao & Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Georgetown University

Stressing the basic methodology of “protection in-depth” and covering the latest practices of agencies such as the US Secret Service and the unique methods of the military and corporate executive protection teams, ISA course designers placed a strong emphasis on the threat assessment and mitigation process, the use of technology, resource management and the legal considerations involved with providing close protection services.

Students who attend this seven-day course will be faced with real-world scenarios based on events such as the June 26th, 2018 breach of security of Senator McConnell and Transportation Secretary Chao and the earlier shooting of House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

All students at the completion of this training course will fully understand the basic philosophy, mission, and objectives for a protective service agent and the protective detail.
