Certification, How does it work really?


You finish a course certifying you as an executive protection operative, Close Protection Officer or any other title out there. You worked hard to gather the money for the expensive course, you feel skilled and accomplished and eager to start working a as a bodyguard. In your dreams you protecting a celebrity on a red carpet event or on a music tour around the glob. Yet, you find out that it's not so simple! 

In this article, we will try clear things up and set the expectations close as possible to reality.

The truth is that in-order to have a gun and work with it - you need a permission from the state to use it for work and have a pro insurance for it. Therefore you need to meet the state requirements to get an armed security license, some states like the states of Georgia, North Carolina, Washington State and others require you to be a bodyguard and private investigator to get the bodyguard license to work as armed security. All of it is nice but if you have a job in NYC or Los Angeles suddenly the certificate is not recognized automatically and require the local state approval - meaning in the end of the day you can't carry or hire someone else to carry while you with your VIP protection armed detail that you hired locally.

To help you with this logistic problem, Israeli Tactical School have access to 8 certified schools in different states (former students part of our family) that recognized the training and will help you apply for a state certificate instead of doing another course again and waste money and time.
