I have a friend who is "well off" that would send me to a school to kick up my resume a bit for protection work, this particular school is in Nevada where I live..


Just looking for opinions on it..

thanks as always :)

If it's free why not?

Just don't fall for the pervasive BS that just because something is Israeli, that it is invincible. Nothing and nobody is invincible.

It is more that I know there are TONS of schools out there and did not want to go for work and hear "You tool courses with WHO?" never heard of them...

I've never heard of these guys, but I would say depends what kind of work you're looking to do. From a brief glance at the website, the training looks very much geared towards to the PSD, HRO, tactical side of things. Are you looking to sign on with an outfit doing that kind of work?

If not, you might be better off checking out schools like EPI, ESI or R.L. Oatman. All three of these are solid in somewhat more low-key, civilian security training... which can always be augmented by the excellent HRO courses available through SI! (Shameless plug, I know, :mischievous:, but I've been through the "tactical" training offered elsewhere, and SI's is definitely at the leading edge!)

Well in a nutshell here is where I am at...
I am 41 have some decent training, and have worked Government security for the last 7 years, Secrect clearance etc, have done court security etc...
I have some weapons experience, surveillance, and the gamut of security chores.

I find that I am over qualified to bother with some $8 private security company, but just under qualified for Blackwater (just an example)

I need a place I can advance as my current employer has made and art out of treating the security department like garbage, making promises of lateral movement that turn out to be out right lies.

I am stuck as substandard pay with no promise or ability to go anywhere here, it is dead end...

I enjoy the tactical environment, I like working with weapons and by nature am a protective person where I put the welfare of others before my own.

I need a place where I can make it a career, just not sure where to go as my resume is stacked with what I do, no time or money to go back to school etc etc....

I just know I have to get out of where I am....

I see nothing on that site concerning who their instructors are. May want to call and ask for bios and such before committing.

If it's free, you may want to take it. You can always discard what you don't like and keep what you think is good.

for protection work the big name schools are really the only ones worth putting on a resume IMO.
