Samaritan Protective Services LLC, A New ISA Training Program Sponsor.

 Independent Security Advisors is honored to announce Samaritan Protective Services LLC has become a sponsor for the June 17th-25th ISA Dignitary and Executive Protection Course being conducted from the Anne Arundel County Police Academy in Maryland.

 Samaritan Protective Services will sponsor a continental breakfast and round table discussion on industry trends and employment opportunities led by Mr. Brandon Shafikhani the owner of SPS. But its not the meal and discussion that makes us feel SPS is the correct choice for a sponsor,  what sold us on SPS was a recent post on Facebook where they announced they has quit a contract because the prime was not properly licensed. Now SPS could have looked the other way and just kept taking the money, but they didn’t, instead they made a decision based on what was right. When was the last time you read about someone in the industry walking away from a contract?  

 But we’re not surprised quite honestly, after all, Mr. Shafikhani is a U.S. Army Combat Veteran and military service requires a sense of honor to be successful. Mr. Shafikhani founded SPS in 2015, so he understands the challenges of transitioning from the military to the private sector,  another plus. And Mr. Shafikhani has led close protection operations for Fortune 100 executives, royals, international diplomats and high net-worth private individuals and families globally. This experience makes him uniquely qualified to be a guest speaker and sponsor for this course.

 Mr. Shafikhani also has a degree from American Military University in Counterterrorism and is a member of ASIS International. He is registered with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services, a certified Emergency Medical Technician and a graduate of numerous Security and Executive Protection training programs nationwide.

 As part of Samaritan Protective Services LLC sponsorship in addition to a continental breakfast, SPS is also offering a seat in this course as an employment bonus for a new employee. So if you’re interested in employment with SPS and need your Virginia Department of Criminal Justice 32E Personal Protection Specialist credential, submit your resume to [email protected]. (Restrictions apply) For more information visit 
 Current employees of SPS may attend at a reduced tuition rate of $1250.00 unless veterans or retired LE in which case tuition may be further reduced, and a SPS group rate is also available.

So what we have here is a sponsor who is not only willing to share their knowledge with the students, but one that is also willing to put their reputation and their money behind this program. And for that we want to thank SPS and we look forward to working with Brandon in June.
