Protective Security Operations Certification (PSOC) Program
June 17-21 in San Jose, CA / Silicon Valley
‘Protection Agent Development’ teaches contemporary methods for low visibility personal security in permissive to semi-permissive environments where a low to moderate threat exists. This highly academic and practical application-based training course creates a comprehensive and balanced foundation for prospective or current members of protective details. Subject matter comprises the most progressive and relevant doctrine currently available for individuals seeking instruction in modern EP practices.
‘Protective Pistol Skills’ is the weapons-centric component of PSOC and is entirely range-based. This format allows students to focus their attention on safe and practical use of a concealed handgun during protective security operations. Students will learn both individual and team-based tactics with firearms as they apply to third-person/principal defense.
