Our all-inclusive course bundle helps you learn from the best professionals in the business on your terms, wherever you are.

This course bundle covers everything from passenger comfort to vehicle dynamics and physics, as well as a variety of helpful tips that distill years of knowledge into an accessible online program. Our courses will help you reconsider speed and handling, evasive maneuvering, principal security, and more.

The Executive Security Driving Bundle focuses on:

  • The necessity of keeping a low profile for yourself as well as your vehicle
  • Staying alert through the six stages of risk mitigation for executive security drivers
  • The unconscious habits that impair your driving
  • The role driving positions play in keeping your principal safe (and comfortable)
  • The importance of “getting off the X” in a vehicle
  • Etiquette rules for executive security drivers 

This bundle features classes from EP instructors Pablo Ortiz-Monasterio and Aaron Mauldin.

You may think that it takes years of driving experience to become a seasoned executive security driver. Far from it: years of time behind the wheel may not give you the best practices that come from learning from the professionals. Worse yet, it may even create and cement bad habits.

Expand your protective knowledge and expertise behind the wheel. Build your brand to incorporate driving and stand out among the competition. 

Executive security professionals need to parlay their security skills when they get behind the wheel. Keeping a principal safe in a vehicle is different than when on foot and in venues. Thankfully, however, many of your skills can be applied to driving scenarios as long as you know what to look for. Our course pack covers everything you need to know in, near, and outside the vehicle.

Security professionals who want to start driving their principals, build their business to incorporate security driving, or learn from experienced professionals to up their game.

Executive driving is a sought-after skill. Too few professionals know how to translate their protective skills to security driving. Thankfully, much of what we know can help make you a comprehensive driver for your principal. The courses in this bundle cover basic vehicle mechanics and physics, security skills you need to avoid or extricate principals from danger, and how to provide customer satisfaction while keeping safety at the forefront.

This program will teach you:

  • The difference between being a chauffeur and a security driver
  • Safety checks in and outside of the vehicle
  • Basic mechanic repairs
  • The must-have gear your vehicle needs
  • Understanding risk on the road
  • Strategies for staying alert on the road
  • The “Six Golden Rules” of executive security driving
  • Operational planning for routes
  • Impact dynamics and the science behind crashes
  • The importance of getting off the X
  • How acceleration, braking, and turning work together
  • Driver etiquette and passenger comfort

Time behind the wheel will only take you so far. The bad habits you have today won’t go away on their own. If anything, they’ll get reinforced. You can spend plenty of time learning from your mistakes and hoping for the best, or you can learn from the best and avoid hard lessons.

This course bundle will help you learn from experts, be it from their successes or even their failures. This means you can avoid making the same mistakes while you learn from world-class professionals.  As security professionals, we need to think ahead. There’s no room for errors with a principal. This class covers everything you need to know, all in one place.

You’ve got two options:

CHOICE #1: Make due with the experience you have and the experience you get from doing

CHOICE #2: Learn essential skills and tips from professionals, saving you time and mistakes
