The Two-Person VIP Protection course is currently in development and is available in an early-access format for Special Tactics Elite Members only. While the graphics, sounds, and activities in this course may not be finalized or polished, the course content is very close to what will appear in the complete course.

We provide early access content to our elite members for two main reasons. First, members can benefit from getting an early look at course materials. Second, Special Tactics can benefit from getting real-time member feedback on the course content, user experience,  and presentation. Therefore, we encourage members to offer both positive and negative feedback on early-access courses, editing suggestions, corrections, ideas for improvements, and specific requests for course content/subjects.

The Two-Person VIP Protection course will help fill a growing gap in protection tactics since current tactics mostly focus on a full, multi-vehicle protective detail. While top-level government officials might have the resources to support a full-sized detail, the vast majority of protection clients (local government officials, business executives, public figures, education/religious institutions) have to manage with only one or two guards at a time. This course provides field-proven tactics for protecting a VIP with only two guards. The course will include the following subjects:

  • Site/Compound Security (Coming soon)
  • Mobile Security (Some modules available now)
  • Venue Security (Some modules available now)
  • Protection CQB (Some modules available now)
  • Weapon disarm techniques (Coming soon)
  • Armed and unarmed control techniques (Coming soon)

  1. This course is great for parents. After all, a mom and dad constitute a ‘two-person VIP protective detail’ for our children, right? With that in mind, perhaps you could expand it to cover multiple VIPs, and perhaps even include some notes on handling children in emergencies like this. Even professional bodyguards sometimes have minor principals who may be more likely to freeze up or meltdown in an emergency situation like this.

    1. I don’t think most parents face the same threat profile these tactics are designed to deal with. Two parents trying to physically control multiple kids and effectively return fire are probably going to fail at all of the above. And why are people shooting at their kids in the first place?

      Certainly the principles are relevant, but trying to stretch tactics beyond their parameters is a good way to see them fail.

  2. I have just finished going through this course. I like the simple format and the graphics I feel are great because they are simple. My take on the course is it all comes down to “shield and maneuver to safety.” As ElijahHenry stated above I think expanding to multiple VIPs is a good idea. Also expand to protecting VIP at venues (concerts, sporting events, conferences etc), How to maneuver with VIP in and out of venues with crowds, to and from vehicle. Also a piece on recognizing the signs and signals of danger, pattern recognition, non-verbal communications. I am normally not a big fan of online learning when it comes to protection and life and death training but I do like the simplicity of this online program as a basic introduction or a refresher for the more experienced. You make this online program a prerequisite for lets say a week long VIP workshop where the folks are doing decision making exercises and free play force on force scenario based learning where they are protecting from front, back, left and right attacks, shield and maneuver to safety builds upon the online version. I am just thinking out loud here as I finished this course and I am sure i am touching on points already thought of with this great group. Just my two cents.
