After leaving the US Army CID in 1996 I knew I needed an update on dignitary protection since I am a licensed private investigator in North Carolina. I knew I did not want to provide EP services with an outdated education. I looked around and found a lot of big names in the industry with no solid educational or certified background. Then I found ISA’s class, saw their background-not only experience, but accreditation and endorsement by solid, international and state groups. The NC private protective services board has approved this class and that was the selling point for me. Anyone can say they teach EP, but who says they have the educational background or the authority? Even big names out there are unaccredited! I chose Matt Parker and ISA because they have the credentials and the professional background. The class was intense, informative and educational. We earned our “Dignitary Protection Specialist” certification-it wasn’t given to us just for attending. Thank you Matt!
