Exceeded my expectations

With my experience in security matters, concerning military and governmental dignitaries, I affirm that the effectiveness of the training, and the methods taught on the ISA Academy is fully comparable with the level of governmental and presidential security. Out of all the courses I have attended throughout my career, the ISA Academy's BTP course is the one that stands out.
