Personal Security Detail is a unique training course that addresses some of the most common concerns associated with using your personal defensive weapon around innocents. In a real-world scenario, you would have extreme stress and crowds of innocent people to negotiate through, two difficult things to simulate in a controlled training environment. Our Cadre will use dry and live fire drills to accustom participants to stressful environments. This course builds confidence and problem-solving skills in some of the most common threat scenarios involving a firearm and protection of a person. By the end of this course, participants will have the opportunity to test their firearms in small teams engaging the threat, protecting people, and getting them to safety.
Personal Security Detail is not recommended for beginners. We recommend the Active Shooter Intervention - Pistol course prior to Personal Security Detail if you are a beginner.
