One of the companies with which the IFPO enjoys a partnership is Matthew Parker's Independent Security Advisors LLC. According to its website, the ISA "is a certified disabled veteran owned company based in Oakland, Md., providing consulting, training, and other services on matters of national security and terrorism, extremism, domestic violence and executive or diplomatic protection."
Here is some information on the latest course offered by ISA:
The next accredited Dignitary and Executive Protection Specialist Course will be August 12th to the 18th in Concord North Carolina.
And we need you. currently, we have organizations with 2 students, but if they attend with three or four they receive a $750.00 to $1000 discount per student.
So if you wanted to attend in August and finances got tight we can register you with their group for the reduced rates.
The hitch: You need to submit your name and organization (if any) for approval by these organizations.
Time is running out, so register by August 5 if you want the reduced tuition rates or to join a group.
