Students will be required to demonstrate an understanding of classroom topics in real-world scenarios throughout the program, including a multi-day driving clinic and an overnight high-profile executive protection operation. During first responder training, students will test for a Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) provider certification and Adult, Child, and Infant CPR/AED for Professional Rescuer.

The testing will continue throughout your seven-week training session which will assess each candidate in more than 75 skills and categories, with tasks being graded individually, by the team, per course, and overall.
