Consider the facts: The Global economy is taking executives and multi-national corporations into more and more dangerous territory. As an Executive Protection Professional (Bodyguard), it’s better to “learn the lessons” at the training compound than make potentially deadly mistakes in the field. Our level II course allows the experienced agent to do just that.

ICON is proud to announce our revamped and highly anticipated advanced course on Executive Protection. Taught by a cadre of instructors active in the industry, this intensive 10-day class is an excellent tool for agents sharpening their skills with a focus on conducting close protection assignments internationally. Work with experienced professionals who are not teaching “theory” put practical applications developed from many years of doing the job. This course is jam packed with gems and information. Taught by Elijah Shaw, CEO of ICON, and co-author of the Best-selling books, An Introduction to Celebrity Protection & Touring & Introduction to Executive Protection, he has assembled an all-star cast including the Mark “SIX” James, Sam Alicea, Benjamin Alozie, and many more.
