Close Protection

Duration: 3 months

this is the initial three-month training required for Executive Protection agents, with comprehensive ongoing evaluations. This course is designed to establish uniformly across the unit the warrior mindset and skills necessary for an effective performance of their duties. The length of the course allows students to master the material and become thoroughly proficient.
It also provides enough time for a reliable, ongoing testing to ensure comprehensive results. Since the Israeli methodology relies on a binary pass/fail system, agents-in-training are required to intercept and eliminate threats with 100% rate of success. Over the years, this course has increased in duration to the current three-month period, as Israelis realized that anything shorter than that produced failing results.
