Course Description

ISA Academy’s BTP Executive Protection Training Program is designed to ensure that the basic knowledge and skills are developed, that will enable each operative to effectively discharge their complex responsibilities independently, corresponding to the highest international standards. The “BTP Course” provides an intensive instruction for attendees at the ISA Academy®. We are looking for people with the right attitude.

Our chief instructor, having more than 35 years of personal hands-on experience in executive security, is RSDF trained and served as commissioned officer at several elite regiments. After a career in the army, with honorable discharge, (including five tours of duty at the Royal Castle, as chief of the quick response unit), he has spent the past years as operational EC at International Security Agency. During this time, he has participated in multiple CP, Surveillance and Counter Terrorism Programs around the world.

Our training facilities are administrated by ISA Academy®. The “BTP Course” was originally designed for International Security Agency trainees only, but to the great demand we decided to open the academy to the public in 1995.

As you can see from our course description, we offer one of the most comprehensive Executive Protection Training Courses open to the public today. Our small class size ensures individual attention from instructors so that you can achieve outstanding training results in a reasonable time frame spent on site.

Your training will be spent practicing and studying a wide variety of tactical, protective and security related topics. The ISA Academy® curriculum also includes intensive training in defensive tactics, practical exercises and the use of firearms. Several tests will be administrated in all areas to monitor the progress of each attendee.

ISA Academy’s “BTP Course” is recognized as one of the finest and most respected training courses in the world today, and is often attended by police officers, law enforcement and UN security personnel from all over the world.

No matter what your reasons may be for attending one of our courses, or what previous experience you may have, you will receive one of the most authentic and up to date Executive Protection Training Programs available on the market today.
