good course that updates you on counter-surveillance security for my career as an escort.
good course that is very useful for your performance in your security career.
Knowledge about criminal behavior is very important and in this profession it is extremely vital for both the protégé and the protectors. It will always be a good choice to strengthen my knowledge and experience.
"Success and big hugs Ivan."
It was an excellent lesson, generally one enters the protection groups and it is very complicated to have these topics explained to you, most of them still go for the ideas of reaction and weapons.
It is really very useful to take the course and carry out all this teaching in the field, since we will eliminate unnecessary risks and we will be able to get home safely.
Thank you Ivan for your great contribution to Executive Security.

Greetings and Blessings!
