I knew it was one of the BEST out there, but what I didn't know was how intense the physical fitness portion would be. Even though I thought I was going to die, I enjoyed it!!!

For a number of years now, I have had the distinct honor of knowing Professor Holifield as a mentor and as a friend. The path of the executive protection community allowed our chances to meet and when he created the International Academy of Executive Protection Agents, he came to me about being his Chief Medical / Tactical First Aid Instructor.

What I came to find out later after the development of this Academy was that it was soon to become a name in the education community of executive protection. Professor Holifield's vision was a foundation that brought some of the brightest in the EP community together as subject matter experts for those attending the course to get a real world perspective of the field.

Instructors with real world experience from areas from South America to the Middle East and presenting that information with documented accounts which strengthens the integrity of the Academy. Allowing students to take from it in all accounts what the profession in-tails.

There are many programs that will give you the information and knowledge to begin a journey in the field of executive protection, but If you are seeking a program that will help you expand that journey and encourage your continued knowledge and growth? Then Professor Holifield and the PHALNX TRAINING ACADEMY is the program for you!

Professor Holifield is a master of his craft. His professional standards of Executive Protection Training are sterling and I've have found them to be in time, marginally above most industry standards. His military expertise, his field tested and proven professional and tactical background and instructional experience radiates throughout the entire training course. Everything that I have applied thus far from IAEPA has allowed me to excel in all my Executive Protection endeavors. Thanks Professor. Go Gold Team!!!
