The Academy offers two types of courses:
- Tuition-free courses in executive protection and residential security, offered under the AS Solution Transition & Selection Initiative. These courses are designed especially for military veterans, ex-law enforcement officers, and others with relevant backgrounds who want to pursue protection careers in the private sector.
- Paid specialized courses in, for example, surveillance detection and covert protection, for executive protection professionals who want to take their careers to the next level.
All courses focus on both hard and soft skills.
All course participants will be evaluated upon completion of training. Successful participants will be awarded a Certificate of Qualification for the relevant program. Each certificate includes a three-tier ranking designation based upon individual performance: Proficient, Highly Proficient, or Exceptionally Proficient. Individuals who fail to meet the standards of the training program will not be certified by the Academy.
AS Solution only provides tuition-free training to those individuals whom we deem to be suitable for employment in the industry. Applicants will be evaluated according to a variety of criteria prior to course admission.
AS Solution provides these courses to contribute to the pool of qualified candidates for our many job openings every year and to further professionalize the executive protection industry. Although we do recruit among course participants, acceptance to any AS Solution Global Training Academy program should by no means be construed as a job offer by AS Solution.
AS Solution champions diversity in the EP industry and encourages qualified candidates of all backgrounds to apply.

The importance of recognizing biases in protective intelligence analysis
We all have biases. We demonstrate this whenever we show an implicit, often unspoken tendency for or against someone or something. For better and for worse, biases are baked into our social, psychological, and cognitive evolution as human beings. Our pattern-seeking brains are hardwired to make predictions, and biases make life quicker and easier to predict. Of course, even protective intelligence analysts are prone to biases; it can’t be helped. But we can help ourselves – and those who consume the intelligence that we produce – by recognizing our biases and doing our best to mitigate them.
Lesser-known threats and vulnerabilities: What executive protection pros (and everyone else) need to know
When people think about the risks that executive protection helps mitigate, they quickly conjure up images of threats they have seen in the media. Home invasions, pushy paparazzi, kidnappings, and public attacks all come to mind. And of course, these are all threats that executive protection professionals and their clients must take seriously.
With this blog we examine some lesser-known threats and vulnerabilities, so EP clients and practitioners can consider them as they plan and implement comprehensive protection programs. Even if you’re not in the executive protection industry, awareness of these threats and vulnerabilities is the first step towards mitigating them.
