To be successful in most fields you have to have some type of formalized or specialized education under your belt in order to teach you both the basic and advanced skills needed to succeed in a specific job. Whether that job is an auto mechanic, a draftsmen or accountant, those entering into the field of Executive Protection are also required to have some type of formal and advanced training.
Training is a component of Executive Protection that has changed significantly over the past 25 years. There was a time when any large, physically-fit man with an intimidating presence was employed as a Bodyguard—or as is politically correct in 2010—Executive Protection Specialist. This simply is no longer the case. Today, men and women both are working in the field, and training is considered key to succeeding in the field, and physical strength, endurance and agility are only part of the EPS equation.
In many cases you will have an extremely hard time finding employment, either with a team or as an individual without a formalized education. It is also important to remember that as an Executive Protection Specialist you have to continue on your path for excellence. Just because you graduated from the ABC school of Executive Protection does not mean that your education is complete. It is imperative for you to constantly continue to learn; the old saying “knowledge is power” is true. The more bodyguard training you have the better off you will be and the more successful you will have in the EP industry.
In the interest of providing our visitors with the best information available to succeed in this business, Bodyguard Careers has prepared the Top Executive Protection School list. Brief descriptions of each bodyguard schools are included. Please be sure to visit them to learn firsthand how they can be of help to you. I look forward to sharing in your success. I know you will find as I have, that you are on a career path that is both interesting and profitable.

I just wanted to show my appreciation for your book. I was recently the victim of a well-known scam organization out there that is preying on individuals like myself. My only regret is, I wish I had your book 4 months ago.
Your e-book has been extremely insightful and helpful. It’s nice to get the thoughts of a true professional, and not someone that is trying to get me to pay thousands of dollars to go to their school.
I applaud you on putting together a list of legitimate executive protection schools, and making them available in your e-book. This e-book is a must read for anyone seeking acceptable executive protection schools.

Foremost, in his duties at Paisley Park was assuring the safety and welfare of the musical artist Prince, as well as celebrities with whom Prince collaborated or associated with Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Carmen Elektra, Sheena Easton, Patti LaBelle and Kim Basinger to name a few.

“Here’s the thing I like about Harlan Austin, he understands the business. However, unlike so many from the “old school” he doesn’t horde information, instead he shares it. Let’s face it, our industry has a reputation for being pretty tight-lipped and while OPSEC (Operational Security) is a great practice, if we close too many doors, how do people just starting out ever get in? When Harlan told me about my inclusion in the previously edition of his “Top Executive Protection Schools”, based off of the uniqueness of our Celebrity & VIP Protection Course, I was delighted. Not only because I was in it, but rather because I encounter so many people who are attempting to do this work with little or no training, primarily because they don’t know where to go to get it. My recommendation to those interested in our industry–buy the book. The $19.95 invested here may save you thousands elsewhere.”
