Course Overview

Top Close Protection Training & executive security  school the best international executive protection training

Our Bodyguard course is the ideal starting point for those wishing to break into the business of protecting others or those transitioning from Military or Law Enforcement. Our course was designed by veterans of the U.S. and Israeli Secret Service agencies (Shin Bet/Mossad) with extensive experience in all facets of corporate, celebrity, dignitary and VIP protection. The curriculum is extremely relevant to those with little to no experience in the security industry as well as to seasoned professionals. We conduct several hands-on, live-fire urban room clearing/CQB exercises incorporating vehicles ambush, evacuation & extraction. We also cover legal aspects, security procedures and emergency response skills commonly required from security personnel.


Our worldwide presence gives us access to live-fire 360° shoot houses in Naples, Florida and Warsaw, Poland, with video shooting depicting crowded event scenarios. The live-fire video scenarios enable us to expose our students to the challenges of making decisions under pressure and according to the rules of engagement.


At Israeli Tactical School, we firmly believe that nothing takes the place of realistic, authentic field training – therefore, we keep classroom instruction to a bare minimum. Our executive protection course is second to none. The combination of bona fide top-tier instructors, state-of-the-art facilities and realistic implementation of skills can’t be matched, and our graduates have a competitive advantage in the job market upon successful completion of our program. Additionally, our job placement assistance helps our graduates to navigate career options through resume writing and job interview workshops.
