Close Protection Training Session for The RNC
One business that appears to be drawing large amounts of interest riding the coattails of the RNC and GOP convention is ASI Consultants and Associates. The Fort Lauderdale close protection firm has been advertising three-day session to professionally train bodyguards and close protection personnel. Furthermore, this firm can certify bodyguards with as many as six prerequisites and certification that will help the protection personnel get RNC-related protection and security jobs.
“With the attention of the world focused on Tampa city, security for the political dignitaries and public officials will be given the highest priority,” says the ASI online advertisement. “Therefore, licensed and professionally trained bodyguards will be on high demand for this event.”
The training firm partnered with the S1 Tampa Investigative and Protection Services to hold a training session last weekend for nine individuals. Each participant paid to learn various techniques such as how to get the client out and in cars safely and quickly, locate “safe havens” during shootouts, evacuate and cover dignitaries, use a taser, and drive in motorcade fashion.
The training session was in such high demand that Bill Ferrell, owner of ASI, had the website designer remove the online listing once the training session was full. In fact, the training session was quickly filled up by eager participants.
“I’ve actually received numerous phone calls,” said Ferrell. “The training session was filled only within three weeks of advertising it. So, we had to turn some people down.”
The next bodyguard training session is scheduled for late May in Fort Lauderdale. The class is available for 12 students and Ferrell is still accepting candidates.
While the ASI newly trained close protection personnel are being professionally trained to prevent trouble at the RNC, lawyers are also prepare for any trouble. These lawyers are also advertising their abilities, and letting everyone know that they are available to handle the aftermath of any trouble that may occur.
