PSD/VIP PROTECTION COURSE
The rise of extremism both overseas and here in the United States has driven the need for trained protection officers to new heights. Threats from criminal organizations, extremist groups and terrorist operatives are increasing both at home and abroad. High level threats against witnesses, suspects, judges, visiting dignitaries and other government officials can only be dealt with by highly trained operators. These operators act as a very effective deterrent to violence against a principle, or in extreme situations a shield against a direct attack.
American Academy of Protective Training has been providing cutting edge tactical training, instruction and on-site advisory assistance for Police, Military and Special Response Teams worldwide for more than 20 years. We have earned an outstanding reputation with operators as a demanding and prestigious training academy. Our programs are both realistic and demanding. Our staff has trained thousands of police officers, soldiers and security personnel from the U.S. and operators from over 30 different countries. We are extremely proud of the quality of instruction we offer. Tactical Teams worldwide have rated our programs as the very best they have ever experienced.
We at AAPT are committed to helping you with your training requirements to become a professional security officer. With that in mind we are here to help you in any way, shape or form we can. We already provide low cost training which is one way we strive to support you in becoming a professional security officer. The other way that we can assist you is by providing some sort of financial help to be able to obtain the training needed to start working in the Security Industry.
With that stated we offer you a six month same as cash program.
We at the American Academy of Protective Training believe in the honest citizen's right to own and bare arms. We also believe it is the duty of all honest citizens to protect themselves and their loved ones from the predatory criminals that walk the streets of America.
An increased number of states are now allowing honest citizens to carry a weapon concealed for protection. The courses we offer are designed to prepare the responsible, adult gun owner to handle their weapons in a safe and effective manner under all circumstances.
AAPT conducts "Force on Force" security training for armed guards, fugitive recovery agents, executive protection agents and armored car drivers. This is the best tactical training available when it comes to getting serious about surviving a deadly encounter with an armed suspect. We utilize the latest in "Mil Sim" or "Airsoft" weaponry to achieve realism and induce the highest levels of stress possible.

AAPT offers the latest in firearms training technology by providing a dedicated "Force Option" firearms simulator room and scenario machine. This is the same program used by numerous law enforcement and military organizations around the world.
AAPT believes it is important for this technology to be available to the security guard and other professionals. With over 450 scenarios to choose from, AAPT instructors can challenge the student with a "high pressure virtual shootout" in complete safety.
The Firearms Training Simulator also supports marksmanship and judgmental training for non-lethal options such as verbal commands, baton, chemical spray and TASER® in addition to hundreds of different firearm types.
