The Steele Foundation- November ITG™ Training Courses


I am very pleased to announce that The Steele Foundation's International Training Group (ITG)™ has one seat open for our November 1st-14th training program. We have a student cap of 24 per class, so as we fill this last seat we will be "sold out". This is the last training program we will be running this year.

Here is an overview of our November Course.



The Steele Foundation has set many industry benchmarks such as being the only private organization in the world to ever provide a full- time Presidential Protection Detail and Training Unit. As industry leaders servicing clients such as the Office of the President of three foreign countries and countless Fortune 100 companies, The Steele Foundation presents unparalleled experience and subject matter expertise in the fields of Executive / Dignitary Protection and Training. Based on this experience, The Steele Foundation's International Training Group (ITG) is defining new training standards, which reflect this same high caliber of expertise, organization, and professionalism.

This is the same program that we put our agents through and is based on the above referenced Presidential Protection Training program which is founded in State Department Doctrine. It is an A-Z program and is geared towards operators looking to achieve a high level of operational skill in the protective services field. It is also the only private sector EP training program that includes a "complete" driver training program.

The program it's self is 12 or 14 days in it's entirety (depending on whether you do both modules Executive / Dignitary Protection Training Module 12 Days and the Advanced Protective Firearms Training Module 2- Days = 14 Days Combined). The November course will be held at our Regional Training Center in Dublin, CA (which is 20 minutes east of San Francisco).

Our program is unique, not only because of the subject matter, but because of our instructors. The Steele Foundation's International Training Group employs professional instructors from diverse professional and academic backgrounds such as military protection, intelligence and investigations units, Special Operations, Federal and State law enforcement agencies and Corporate Security. Our Instructors are the most highly trained and experienced Executive / Dignitary Protection experts teaching in the private sector today. As an example, one of our lead instructors for our July Course is Jake Ashton. Mr. Ashton is currently one of the lead instructors for the US Army's CID Protection School House.

The program is advanced and very hands on, as it's about 70% practical and 30% classroom.

Finally, we are keeping the cost as low as possible to ensure that quality individuals are able to attend. Most programs are only 5 - 7 days or less and cost far more then our program.

Executive / Dignitary Protection Training Module: 12-Day Program -

- November 1st - November 12th, 2004

Advanced Protection Firearms Training Module: 2-Day Program - $750.00

- November 13th-14th, 2004

Combined Protection Training Module: 14-Day Program - $3,400.00

- November 1st-14th, 2004


If you combine both modules (which are scheduled back-to-back)the training is 14 Days Total and you recieve a discount.

I may be baised, but I truly think we are offering one of the most in- depth, cost effective, cutting edge/realistic training programs available in the private sector today.

Our July program was just reviewed by The History Channel's "Tactical Practical" which aired last night.

Many of the members of this group are familiar with our programs and the reviews have all been excellent.

While we provide training to those looking for a high level of protection skills, we are also a "Service Provider", so at the end of the program we have the ability to provide you an application and hire you in some capacity. Many the individuals who have attended our programs have ended up working with us in the feild. Again we make no promises of employment and offers of employment are all based on the individual and how well they do in the course.

Hope to see you there .

Thumb's Up...

I highly recommend this course if you are interested in professional Executive Protection Training.

I was able to participate in and observe a portion of this course last year and the instruction for those sections was top notch... Steele has an outstanding reputation and is one of the most respected US based International companies currently operating.
