I always say people can teach you one of two things:
What to do, or what NOT to do.
Today I learned both. As part of my continuing training and personal development, I carved time into my schedule and attended Tony Scotti’s Vehicle Dynamic’s Institute.
The course i’m undergoing is their Protective Driver/Evasive program which is designed for professional security drivers, and Executive Protection specialists looking to improve the knowledge, skills and ability needed to provide secure and safe transportation for clients. The instructors have taught the program worldwide, and let’s be honest, It was developed by the man who literally wrote the book on the subject of Security Driving.
My plan is to write more upon successful completion of the course, but in the short term, I can say that by the end of Day 1, i’ve learn new methods to successfully protect myself and my clients by gaining a deeper understanding of how to make the vehicle do what I want it to, and at the same time identifying it’s limitations.
