“This Tactical medicine course is by far the best I have seen in my 15 years of service in the SEAL teams. The final exercise is as realistic and stressful as I’ve seen in a training environment. They not only hit the wickets for the cert but also provide some unparalleled realistic training scenarios utilizing Hollywood makeup artists and the most knowledgeable instructors in the business”

My following comments are based upon 23 years of U.S. Army Special Forces experience (retired MSG, 18E, 18F, 18Z) and too many schools to list.  As a retiree I have continued to serve in varying capacities for the U.S. Government in service CONUS and OCONUS. I came to this course with an open mind; wanting and willing to broaden my horizons and see what new tactics and techniques are being taught since I originally attended PSD training many years ago.

Protective services is a collective task made up of many implied tasks that an agent must have some degree of competency in. Cousre instructors have found a way, in a short period of training days, to encompass nearly all tasks necessary to give an untrained individual an introduction to all facets called upon in order to support a protective detail. As for individuals with some sort of training or experience already in PSD operations, they will find a course that is very comprehensive that will build upon what they already know and expound upon their present capabilities.

The staff of instructors possess varying degrees of experience in CONUS and OCONUS PSD operations that ensure they teach you not only “doctrine” is, but what actually works on the ground. They support their instruction with real-time experiences that offer an insight into a rather obscured world surrounded by fiction and movies. They use the approach of crawls, walk, run and apply pressure by analyzing the individual student and push them to draw upon all the tactics, techniques and procedures taught to enure they are as competent as possible considering the short training schedule. All modules of training from Executive Protection to TCCC are encapsulated into your scenarios once you begin HTPS training.

The training model being executed is normally only seen at very high level courses of instruction reserved for Special Operations from my experience.

Please keep up the great work here. What you are doing is important for the industry. I truly appreciate all the hard work all the instructors put into the course behind the scenes putting all this together.

“The HTPS Course has mastered the art of ensuring students retain the knowledge through high stress situations. I have never seen instruction of this caliber before. The HTPS instructors showed professionalism, passion for the training, and advanced knowledge of the subjects. The instructors make you want to listen.

I feel the course was absolutely worth the time and money. I strongly believe I now have the necessary skills to enter the field and be an asset to any company I chose to work for”

**********************************************************************************************************************************

HTPS course was everything a course should be! A lot of material was covered in a very short period of time in a way that made it usable under realistic stress. Instructors here are a wealth of knowledge that are willing to share without holding anything back. If the Marine Corps offered schools like this, I would still be in

Justin W. – Sgt USMC

**********************************************************************************************************************************

The High Threat Protection Course far exceeded my expectations, especially for a VA funded course. Having completed numerous schools over the span of 23 years in the military, this is far and away one of THE BEST courses I’ve attended. Minimal time in the classroom with maximum time and effort on the range, in the dirt, and in an actual operating environment. This course sets the standard for what all other courses in this industry should strive for. Top notch group of professionals! Each instructor took a sincere interest in sharing their knowledge and experience. I look forward to the opportunity to learn from and work with again in the future

Best training I have ever received. Very hands-on and efficient teaching. Instructors gave very good individual instruction and care about the well being and learning of the students. Better training in 3 weeks than I ever received in the Marines. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in what they teach, and it shows. They teach what works and what doesn’t

I feel this course enhanced me personally and professionally. Personally by enhancing traits such as leadership and awareness; Professionally, by developing skill-sets I didn’t have and enhancing skill-sets that I did have.  The instructors were the best; professional, humble, knowledgeable and skillful.

If we had this training before my deployments, we would have saved a lot of lives. These were among the best instructors I’ve ever met and I’ve spent the last 10 years in training environments. During this course I learned more efficient medical training than I did in 6 years of service in the Marine Corps. They were thorough, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable.
