Protection industry terms and definitions:

Our School products and content presented on the web and describe in the industry in different ways and forms. In this article I will try to explain the different names and phrases used to make a bit sense and avoid the confusion and explain how our school bridge the gap on context meaning through the curriculum and actual training we provide for every topic:


PSD also known as Personal Security Detail or Protective Security Detail

The term PSD define usually for overseas government related jobs or for military protection details assigned to protect as asset like a general or other government official, such as the president of Iraq in the sensitive times after the 2nd Golf war.

Basically, PSD / PMC need to function in high risk hostile environment in remote locations usually in a squad or team structure. The PSD squad naturally not trained for this type of protection mission since most of them coming from infantry tactics background. The adaptation to this semi civil mission we are doing by adding the crowed with non-combative to the over all combative situation. The student doesn’t just learn to shoot the rifle and pistol but also engage with these platforms and avoid collateral damage. The students learn to use “selective shooting” methods and rules to shoot only the “bad guys” and how use all of that in different missions. We train the students with urban or vehicles live fire and force-on-force scenarios. Our school specialized in creating realistic environment for the students by adding pressure tests in the individual and team levels. These tests are important portion of the courses since it’s allowed us to better evaluate the student level and know what type of adjustment to do to fill the gap of his knowledge.
