What this EVOC Course Involves:
The Pacific West Academy’s Emergency Vehicle Operations course is incredibly in-depth. It provides a thorough overview of vehicle operations. The course is particularly recommended for students who wish to enter into law enforcement or executive protection.
The course is broad in its scope, and seeks to provide a thorough background knowledge of a range of different areas. First and foremost, you will learn the fundamentals of vehicle dynamics. This will help to ensure a sound theoretical knowledge of vehicles. From there, you will develop skills regarding basic vehicle maintenance, as well as problem-solving techniques. These will stand you in good stead throughout the course of your career.
The problem-solving continues across the practical part of the course. You will also learn techniques for vision, braking, and skid control. All of these are essential for anyone working in an high-pressure driving situation. The course then expands further with an in-depth examination of the theory behind high-speed driving. This is allied to practical instruction in the same area. You will also learn the techniques required for reverse driving. That’s a vital skill for any executive protection officer or member of law enforcement.

Our Students Say
I just want to say thank you to ASC for everything. After I graduated I got a call from ****** Security about my interview that I had with them on the last day of school. They said that the skill set and training I received from ASC (along with my military background) place me far beyond the average person who applied for a job with their company. And because of that they want to hire me not as a security guard, but as a shift supervisor. I couldn't believe it. One of my fears about starting my career and security was that I would graduate from training and not receive any job offers. However since graduating ASC I've been offered two jobs (one as a supervisor and one as a guard) and the pay for both are great. The money I'm going to start making is way more than what I was before so for that I want to say thank you. It was because of you guys that my life changed course and now the possibilities are ever-changing. Be sure to pass my thanks to Connor, Omer, Ryan, Jake, Ian, Steve and the rest of the guys.Jovidean Sun Valley, CA
I just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend your CPR course. I know your focus is primarily training bodyguards but as a mother of two I wanted to learn CPR 'just in case.' I never realized there was such a difference between CPR for adults and CPR for infants. I now feel comfortable that if something bad were to happen I have the ability to do CPR. Thank you again.Larissa Courpus Christi, TX
I've been in Executive Protection here in LA since returning from a tour in Iraq in 2005. I think a lot of people who are interested in this field are under the misconception that being a cop, soldier or bouncer will give them all the tools they need to be effective in the EP field. Far from it. These jobs may provide a foundation but they don't provide a true understanding of the dynamics of Executive Protection. Your course was a good introduction to the ins and outs (and potential pitfalls) of EP work. Whether or not someone is new to the field or, like me, just trying to maintain perishable skills, I highly recommend this course.Don Los Angeles, CA
As a former law enforcement officer I thought I had a pretty good understanding of what it would take to be a good Executive Protection Specialist but it's a whole different ball game when you don't have the weight of a badge behind you. Although this course was basically fundamentals, I felt it helped bridge the gap between my experience as a law enforcement officer and the EP field. Although I had done a lot of similar range work before I found the firearms portion of the course work to be very professional and well executed and could see how this would be a great course for someone new to the field. Thanks for a great course.Josh Huntington Beach, CA
