“Body For Hire: The Complete Bodyguard Training Collection” by Hawk East, Inc. is a video and message program on the essentials of exec security. The teachers Tom Carter, Jr., Roger Hair, Rick Reynolds, Dave Bartram, and Expense Thompson all have a wealth of expertise and they share quite a bit in this program. For the individual who wants to know more concerning the field of executive security, this would be a great location to start. For someone who took a program from Hawk East, this is an excellent refresher course to have. I additionally want to state first that I such as that Roger Hair put a dedication in memory of Tom Carter, Jr. in the event. I recognized with Carter’s job and also remember when he was eliminated in Iraq in 2004. I value him, his understanding, and also his service to our country.
The initial part of this testimonial will concentrate on the three-volume DVD set. I’ll mention a few of my issues regarding these DVDs first, and afterwards jump on to what I suched as concerning them, and also there is far more great than unfavorable, and the adverse as you’ll see is all about the production values not web content.
These DVDs were first recorded on VHS and after that transferred to DVD. Most of us that watch DVDs are accustomed to expensive menu web pages, having the ability to miss to specific parts of the program, etc. You do not get that with this program, and that is my biggest issue. There is a lots of details right here, and it would certainly be more easy to use if you had a food selection and also could avoid right to the topic you want to watch. So even though they are DVDs, it is like seeing a VHS tape without menus, scene selection, and so on.
Enough with that, you understand. Currently on to the great, and also there’s a lot. The instructors do a great task of presenting a lot of info for those who wish to learn more about exec protection. They offer well and also the audio and also photo is clear. Most important, other than some equipment that may be dated, the details they offer is audio and also valuable. I’ll now experience the three volumes individually with what they contain.
The first disc, volume 1, is almost totally in the classroom. The only portion of this volume not in the classroom is a brief section with Rick Reynolds outside searching a vehicle. With that stated, they did a good task of shooting and modifying the class material with various views of the audio speakers and cut-aways to the trainees so you were not just looking at the same scene after that whole time. Now to the excellent stuff, the components of the classroom instruction.
Roger Hair, Tom Carter Jr. and Rick Reynolds are all really well-informed on the subject as well as they resolve several misconceptions regarding the executive security field with their training. They are not there to create knuckle dragging bone crushers, but rather informed, articulate, determined specialists that agree to tackle the obligation of maintaining customers secure. I such as that they point out that 90% of the task is development work and maintaining clients away from dangers.
This is a standard training course, however as Carter claims, “Fundamentals are important.” Throughout the equipment choice portion, things such as how you dress, weapons, holsters, body shield, brief-cases, and sunglasses are gone over. Several of the equipment and tools gone over in this program might be dated. To dismiss the collection because of this would be reckless, given that the reasons behind the devices are still valuable to recognize. Fundamental terms is reviewed. Again, this is a standard program and also some people will not recognize with these terms, so I rejoice they were included.
Customer analyses and also sorts of safety are looked at. This volume likewise consists of a sector on looking for bombs with means to search consistent and extensive. Protective developments as well as planning are reviewed. Things such as group placement and also principles when under fire are shown. The trainers discuss motorcade safety and also chauffeurs.
I really like that the teachers mention that much of protection work is not attractive. It’s not all Hollywood action.
The second disc, Quantity 2, relocates outside with Dave Bartram instructing a course on firearms training at the variety. He shows standard gun concepts, consisting of Weaver stance, target selection, making use of views, shooting on the action, and tool retention. With every one of these, you can not become competent by just watching the DVD. You must venture out and technique. Ideally with an instructor, and after that use the DVD as refresher course material for your ongoing training. There is likewise an area on automobile glass ballistics that I liked. Great details if you ever need to shoot at or from a car. The firearms training uses up about the initial hour of the DVD.
The program after that continues with London bodyguard services lorry operations as well as covers points such as vehicle pre-flights, automobile selection, and also evasive driving. They reveal diagrams of cars doing L Transforms, J Turns, and also Reverse 180s, in addition to showing real lorries doing them, and also inside sights of the vehicle drivers placing the lorries with these tactics. Again, you will not excel by simply viewing, you require to have a refuge to exercise these. If you can participate in a college, that is best, as well as use this as review product. If not, do what they teach in a refuge and also learn these prior to you ever before need them genuine. They additionally cover ramming methods and also getting rid of ranges.
The last brief area is back in the class where they demonstrate just how to draw out the principle from risk and also discuss non-verbal informs that can set up with your client.
Disc 3, Quantity 3 of the set, begins with Expense Thompson demonstrating as well as walking you through a vehicle bomb search. It’s a 26 minute section that aids you recognize what to try to find and where when looking automobiles for eruptive gadgets.
Next Off, Roger Hair talks about standard dining rules. If you recognize with dining at expensive places, you may understand this. Nonetheless, if your dining experiences are convenience food areas, you will intend to beware as well as discover what is shown below prior to you attend an expensive meal with a customer.
Expense Thompson goes back to review interaction equipment. He reviews a great deal of details, several of which might be dated because of the developments in tools. No matter, he raises some really essential points you ought to consider when picking devices that is readily available today.
The final sector is a lecture by Tom Carter in front of a podium with a black history. Carter is not one of the most energised or computer animated speaker, and also he does make use of notes, however he likewise presents a wealth of information. It’s not exciting information, however it is necessary for the security trade. Much of the lecture is on protecting proprietary information for your clients. He goes over danger analyses, safeguarding living locations, and surveillance and counter-surveillance. There was likewise a brief area on hotel choice with scenes inside a hotel prior to finishing the lecture back at the podium with black background.
I did locate that this 3rd disc finished a little bit quickly at 1:55:50. There was no real verdict, the program simply mosted likely to some sources for added info.
Despite the lack of food selections, scene selection, and “flash” numerous DVDs contain, I found this set to be extremely insightful with fundamental information that is incredibly vital for the executive protection professional. It’s not exciting or attractive, but undoubtedly important for the task.
In addition to the 3 DVDs, Hawk East has actually put together a large workbook to come with the video clip discussion. Like the DVDs, the workbook is no frills, however packed with helpful info. It’s not actually a publication, however instead a large 3 ring binder including many “chapters” on different topics. It’s more like the workbook/binders you obtain when participating in a seminar our training course, as opposed to a text book. The web pages have a photo duplicate appearance, but are still dark as well as understandable. Regardless of layout, it’s the information that is essential, and there is a whole lot below.
