- How to put together a professional resume: How to create a professional resume: in many cases, an employer will skim through a pile of resumes in order to create a shortlist for interview. This means that you have to be able to impress on paper, or you won’t get a chance to show off your personality at interview. Your resume is essentially a summary that advertises your skills, your credentials, and your experience. It should showcase everything that makes you an excellent candidate for the job and persuade the panel reading it to give you an interview. If you’ve applied for several jobs, and you’ve never got to the interview stage, your resume may be throwing a spanner in the works. Our training courses are designed to perfect your resume in order to increase your chances of getting to that next stage. We can show you how to put together a professional resume that will set you apart from the crowd and leave employers wanting to know more.

We’ll go through the dos and don’ts, we can run through some dummy questions with you, and we’re on hand to answer your questions.
- Tips on how to answer common difficult questions: How to answer common tricky questions: every interview is different, but there are some questions employers tend to use over and over again. Answering difficult questions in a high-pressure setting can be challenging. We can help you to preempt questions, formulate model answers and improve your confidence when you come up against a tricky question.

Our Students Say
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 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 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'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
