    ISA Academy provides an in-depth, hands-on, rigorous and thorough training program. It is guaranteed to be challenging both mentally and physically and supply the skills and knowledge that will prepare those looking towards a career path in Close Personal Protection, International Security, Police, or even for those just looking for a way to develop tools that will give them confidence in knowing they are better equipped to protect themselves and those around them. I highly recommend ISA Academy.

    This course is something that every security officer should experience. The combination of real life experience combined of lessons make students active throughout the course!

    I did my first training at ISA academy in Sweden 2009 and have since only climbed the qualifications. I made my advance weapon training with ISA Academy in the Philippines and then advanced to team leader as I joined an ISA Academy class in Singapore with the Singapore Army. The quality of the training is outstanding and world class. I am more than happy with their expertise and guidance through all the courses and trainings. The 13 years I have traveled around the world and the experiences I have had have been worth every penny I spent on the ISA Academy courses. I give 6 out of 5 possible stars to ISA Academy.

    I have studied and worked as a police officer in NSW, Australia. After completing the BTP course I have a far greater knowledge of the subjects covered. In this short time with ISA Academy, I have learnt better and more practical ways to apply what I have learnt than I did in 1 year at the Police Academy!

    ISA Academy’s close protection training is thorough and comprehensive. The teaching is aimed at adult humans with equal respect. What you put in, is what you get out. Coupled with superb instruction and instructor knowledge. Other courses may glorify and show close protection as a glamorous profession, ISA Academy shows the reality and gives the training to cope with that reality.

    ISA Academy is the place where you learn more than just theory put into practice! The instructors will push your buttons to the limit, making these courses something you will almost daily use in life, regardless the line of work you're in. Being involved on the ground in Ukraine since week one, I am proud to say I had Leo Strand to advise me on a regular basis, and HEY! I'm still alive, so it worked!

    With my experience in security matters, concerning military and governmental dignitaries, I affirm that the effectiveness of the training, and the methods taught at ISA Academy is fully comparable with the level of governmental and presidential security.

    I’m with the bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms. I just completed the firearms course. In the beginning I was missing a lot of shots, but in the end of the course, I'm getting all headshots, or if not headshots, neck shots, which is a great improvement for me. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot. I think it's a great course!

    I did not come from a mil or LE background nor had I ever done CP work. The course I attended at ISA Academy in 2006 was exactly what I needed. It gave me a solid foundation on which I stand today. His style of teaching and the absolute hands on approach got me ready for the industry. I have been associated with Leo Strand for over 15 years now having also attended ISA Academy's firearm training programs in the Philippines.

    Several years ago I attended my first educational session with the ISA Academy in Sweden. The standards quality and experience on the company is awesome. If you as a private or corporate are in the need of any security related issues, don’t hesitate to contact the ISA Academy. I’ve been to several different courses in my career, with a wide variety. It sticks out that my relations with Leo Strand have last for 2 decades now. He’s professionalism and knowledge are on the highest possible level. I will recommend ISA Academy to those with the right intentions, and are looking for the best possible training or real life security related scenarios.

    I expected it to be like any other ‘bodyguard course’, but at the ISA Academy the instructions were provided individually, emphasizing performance and pushing you far beyond your limits.

    You want practical and useful contents that will teach you the tricks and treats. Go for a course where successful students have a chance of getting a job after their school. Go for a course where live operational missions are held during your training. Student groups or classes are kept to a minimum, like not more than 10 students max. I can add a lot more but this is the minimum you should consider. One I can highly recommend is the ISA Academy in Sweden where I took the BTP bodyguard course. Their method is the best and very down to earth and realistic training.
