Online & Hands-on Executive Protection Training 

SECFOR International launches online Executive Protection Courses
We have launched our online Route mapping module which is the most detailed part of your protective advance. This is not a 1 hour PowerPoint with a 10 question quiz make it look as though you learned something. Our program is an 11 hour program with 4 international Protective Advance Mapping assignments that will be graded and critiqued individually. All you need to start right now is a laptop computer (or similar) and internet. Whether you are new to the industry, or a veteran protector, set yourself apart from the rest by training in a measurable skill to add value to your next Executive Protection or Close Protection detail.
