Who is Operations Supervisor Training aimed at?
This particular course is perfect for anyone that holds a position as an executive security supervisor. Are you tasked with running various security details every day? If so, then this is an essential learning program for you. It will also be beneficial for anyone that wants to apply for this type of security role in the future.
A lot of the students on this course are ex-military or were once in the police force and have retired. Going into security work and becoming a bodyguard is an excellent choice if you used to work in either of these fields. With this training, you’ll get all the skills required to do this type of job.
What will you learn?
The whole aim of this course is to leave you in a position where you can plan out an entire security detail where everything runs smoothly. You’ll learn everything there is to know about planning it, executing it, and coping with any incidents that might happen.
Here is a list of the vital skills you will learn while on the course:
- Fundamentals of Microsoft Office: you may not realize this, but all protection supervisors and security personnel need to have a firm grasp of the Microsoft Office software. This is because a lot of your security details will be planned out and displayed using Office, Excel or PowerPoint. If you can’t communicate things clearly and present them in a format that’s easy for people to see, then you’ll never do a good job.
- Cyber Security: in this modern age there are more threats than ever before. Working in an executive capacity, it’s highly likely your client will be under threat from cybercriminals. As such, you’ll be taught how to handle these threats and the protective measures you need to take.
- Operational Security: a key role of security personnel is being able to look at situations and use enemy intelligence against them. By learning operational security procedures, you’ll become an expert in assessing situations and responding to them effectively.
- Detail Planning: you may go on various security details every week, and they need to be planned accordingly. This section of the course is dedicated to making sure you know how to prepare a detail thoroughly.
- Detail Briefing: of course, you have to give a brief to the rest of your security team before you take your client wherever they need to be. As a consequence, you’ll be taught how to brief a team, so they know exactly what’s going down and everyone is assigned their individual roles.
- The “Advance”: what happens when your executive client has been called to a meeting in a foreign location? You don’t know anything about the place, or what threats could be lurking. This is when you send in an Advance Team to scope out the area before your client comes along. You’ll undergo teaching that shows you how to conduct a security advance that ensures you keep your client as safe as can be.
Duration: 24 hours

Our Students Say
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
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
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
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
