ISA Executive Protection Training in June, Always Getting Better.

ISA is proud to announce the following updates and changes to the June 17th-25th Executive Protection Specialist Training Course

Guest Speakers

 While some schools frown on guest speakers because they may not share the same operational philosophy or could be competitors in the future, we welcome them. Every guest speaker is vetted and meets the requirements of our accreditation agencies to be speakers. Each has something different to bring to the students and for the June class we are honored to welcome the following;

Special Guests include;

  1. Kristin Lenardson, President of the @IPSB, former FBI, and Fortune 100 EP and intelligence program director *Guest Speaker
  2. Brandon Shafikhani, CEO, @Samaritan Protective Services,  Course Co-Sponsor, *Event Speaker/Moderator
  3. Carl Persons, Associate Director, @Red Five Security, Former US Secret Service, Course Co-Sponsor, *Guest Speaker and Instructor
  4. Nick Clarke, Creator of the @Executive Protection Development Group, Course Co-Sponsor, *Student and Event Speaker/Moderator 
  5. Beau Jarvis, Red Five, formally of the Prince Georges County Police Department, ISA alumni, former assistant instructor/evaluator. * Guest Instructor

Note*  Special guests pending confirmation
CEO, Maryland based EP services provider
Maryland State Police
Federal Law Enforcement 

Now, what does that mean for our students?

  Well, for every student it means you will have an opportunity to speak with those with a proven track record for success at some of the highest levels of law enforcement and the private sector, as well as experienced EP agents with different experiences and philosophies.


For our law enforcement and military students, it means you have an opportunity to work with, and learn from those who have made the jump from law enforcement and the military to the private sector to share their experiences and philosophy for success.



Special events

 Have you seen social media posts asking “how do I get started”, have you asked that question yourself? The ISA Executive Protection Course has three opportunities to get those and other questions answered during three different round table discussions. 

Note *Round table discussions may be broadcast live on Facebook. If you wish to participate please e-mail your questions or comments to mparker@eptraining. Our guests will have them for the discussions. 

  1. REDFIVE sponsored lunch and round table discussion June 21  (Must be a course attendee)    
  2. Samaritan Protective Services sponsored continental breakfast and industry round table discussion 19 June (Open to the public) ($25.00 fee if not a course attendee)
  3. Executive Protection Development Group sponsored dinner and round table discussion June 21st (Open to the public) ($25.00 fee if not a course attendee)

Reminder, this is a fully accredited course approved for law enforcement, private investigators, commercial security officers & EP agents by the State of Maryland, Commonwealth of Virginia, North & South Carolina and Georgia. This course is endorsed by the IFPO and approved for CEUs by ASIS.
