Assassination and Kidnapping Awareness and Theories

 Course Description


This course is designed to inform and provide additional awareness to law enforcement, security agencies and Personal Protection Agents in the first two most harmful acts; Assassination and Kidnapping against any client. We explore methods on both subjects with security defense measures against these acts including areas of sociology and psychology. When a client has the potential of being a target for either subject, all security providers should have an understanding how these attempts could accrue including how to incorporate safety measures to counteract.
