When a student looks at executive protection training and a training provider they often focus on cost, time and location. They forget or just don’t know the most important factors graded or evaluated by institutes of higher learning and regulatory agencies are curriculum, instructors and standardization of training. Just read the FLETA manual and review the regulations for training at a federal academy, or the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice training regulations for executive protection schools seeking accreditation.
Let me say that again, if your instructors have no formal instructor training or certification they don’t belong in the classroom with students paying good money to learn or train. Any training must be vetted to ensure it meets the needs of the students, it should address any licencing or permitting requirements if any, and meet the requirements of employers/clients.
The instructors must have the proper experience, absolutely, but also the certifications to actually teach the material, all because you once served on a detail doesn’t mean you can teach it. The very reason instructors are interviewed and often need to be nominated for instructor positions is because a poor instructor can greatly affect your training. Ask every police academy, the US Military and regulatory agencies that have jurisdiction over training. Rant over Matthew Parker CEO, ISA
