Executive protection (EP), also known as close protection or personal protection, refers to security measures taken to ensure the safety of VIPs or other individuals who may be exposed to some personal risk because of their employment, celebrity status, wealth, associations or geographical location.
Thanks in part to the global slowdown, executive protection professionals are facing unprecedented challenges downsizing, layoffs, and a general negative attitude toward senior executives at every level. Training continues to be essential, especially now when executive protection is being asked to do more with less.
At the Executive Protection Institute, we encourage our students to be proactive, cater to the client’s needs, and to avoid problems and threats. You will leave EPI knowing how to prevent and handle difficult situations, accidents, medical emergencies and deliberate attacks. We focus on prevention, advance planning and assessments in each of our Executive Protection related training platforms. EPI has many courses offerings designed to meet your individual training needs ranging from online webinars, to hands-on reality-based inclusive courses:
