The primary objective of the “Executive / VIP Protection & Planning” program is to provide the attendees  with an understanding of how to prevent and lessen the likelihood of a criminal or terrorist attack against themselves, their family, or for those whom they provide protective services . Sophisticated criminal or terrorist attacks are always difficult to detect or predict. They often appear to be committed without any warning or reason by individuals who just happen to act on a target of opportunity. In reality, quite often these acts of terrorism or criminal activity are well planned. They are more often carried out by intelligent, calculating individuals. They may be committed to a cause and strongly believe the use of violence or kidnapping is morally justified to accomplish their goals. They may target a business or government representative for monetary gain or simply due to the citizenship that the individual holds.

This forty hour program is designed to inform professional Supervisory Personal Protection personnel, and individuals who due to their position, financial status, life style or popularity may become targets of terrorist or criminal elements. Attendees will become familiar with how these groups select their targets. The planning and preparation of their attacks will also be discussed. Participants who provide protection will learn what is expected of them to protect their clients. Executives/VIP’s will learn how to protect and increase the security awareness for themselves, their businesses, and families. Recognizing surveillance / targeting techniques and what action to take if you suspect you or your business may be a target will also be addressed.



The purpose of the “Executive / VIP Protection & Planning” program is to train attendees to ensure that they can apply a standard level of adequate and timely Life Safety and Personal Protection, Security Policies and Procedures within Executive / VIP Protection environments.

Upon completion, a Mounted Certificate is awarded in “Executive / VIP Protection & Planning”.



This informative five day course is designed for supervisory personnel charged with protection responsibilities such as Military Close Quarter detailees, Law Enforcement Team Leaders and Personal Protection Detail Supervisors. Government Officials, Corporate Executives, High Profile Persons, High Risk Personnel and their families who are likely targets of terrorist or criminal elements should also attend. It will assist them in assessing their vulnerabilities and taking immediate action to lower their visibility profiles thus limiting their risk. Executive/VIP’s who travel frequently throughout the US or overseas and wish to reduce the likelihood of becoming a target should attend. The law enforcement officer, protection specialist, business leader, popular personality or government employee who wishes to increase his/her business and families’ safety should also attend this course. They should also strongly consider having adult family members attend the course with them.



Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are nationally recognized units in qualified programs which allow the participant to document all non credited work completed. CEUs may be used as evidence of increased performance capabilities and for job advancement. They are recognized by many professional organizations and companies.




Documentation of attendance at these programs may be submitted to the ASIS Professional Certification Board for consideration of recertification credit by qualified Personal protection Specialist.





This  “Executive / VIP Protection & Planning”  program has been reviewed and is “Approved by the North Carolina Private Protective Services Board”. This Board regulates and licenses all Private Investigative, Security, & Counterintelligence activity within the State.
