Course Description; Private Security EP Operations

The NBA All-Star game and Republican National Convention is coming to Charlotte North Carolina. Are you prepared to operate in a multi-jurisdictional environment on private and public property and facilities alongside state and local law enforcement, the US Secret Service and the dozens of other private sector security providers?

Question: So you have done some executive protection before, but are you sure your ready to operate in this environment?

If you have any question in your mind then this dignitary and executive protection course hosted and co-sponsored by Ron Mann and Derecho Investigations is for you and your team. Mr. Mann knowing the scope of operating in Charlotte and wanting to be sure his entire staff was ready and current with their training has gone the extra step of hosting a fully accredited and North Carolina approved Dignitary & Executive Protection Training Course.

Co-sponsored by the World Institute of Security Enhancement (WISE) and conducted by Independent Security Advisors LLC this program will have some of the most highly qualified guest speakers, instructors and cadre ever assembled.  This is fully accredited and pure executive protection training, no “shiny objects” like a day on the range or a day on the track.  Use of force and drivers training are stand-alone programs, we focus completely on the critical skills and procedures of conducting executive protection. (See course material below)

This course is designed to introduce the student, whether law enforcement, private security or investigators to the critical, basic and advanced foundations of Dignitary and Executive Protection.  The methodology and procedures are based on the US Secret Service concept of security in depth; this ensures students learn an established standard of conduct as well as operations, critical individual skillsets and procedures. But interoperability of private security and law enforcement is also a major component of this course.

This program will specifically address dignitary and executive protection operations and introduce students to the issues associated with the different security organizations, agencies, and departments when they are operating around and within each other’s “controlled space”, especially within the operational authority of the US Secret Service, state and local law enforcement.

The program standardizes procedures and skillsets to prepare students who will conduct or support dignitary/executive protective service operations for private clients, elected officials, and political appointees, members of the court and corporate executives who may be potential targets of terrorism and/or criminal acts.

Course History

Originally the introduction to EP operations course for local and campus law enforcement, this program was redesigned to bring private security organizations and law enforcement together under one standardized program of instruction. This course prepares students to provide close protective services at all levels of threat and in accordance with all applicable international, federal, state and local laws and regulations in a multi-jurisdictional environment or national security event.
