In a male-dominated profession, female executive protection agents continue to be in high demand! Female agents are valued for their covert presence, precision, discernment, professionalism, and elegance. We recognize this need for highly trained female agents and continue to encourage women from all walks of life to explore this exciting, challenging and rewarding career in Executive Protection.
This high demand is due to several reasons: (1) Female protection agents blend nicely with their clients and their environment, they do not look like the average bodyguard, but ready to react at a moments notice. (2) Most high-level female executives, in the movie industry, music industry, corporate business world and the rich and famous feel more comfortable and prefer a female protection agent by their side. (3) A female agent can go places that a male agent cannot, and would not draw unwanted attention. (4) Female agents are extremely well organized, multi-taskers, with a natural ability to sense danger, poised and able to remain calm and work well under pressure.
Bilingual (speaking other languages) is a plus. Former Military, Law Enforcement, Martial Arts training, and firearms training is a plus, but not necessary to attend this training.
Hard work pays off! The physical fitness standards for female students are the same as male students. Everyone works just as hard to succeed. We will provide you with a strong foundation in executive protection training to put you on the road to success in the personal protection industry.
WOMEN IN EXECUTIVE PROTECTION SHOULD THEY BE THERE?
Yes, of course. Why not? there are a number of (though not nearly enough) successful female executive protection agents. In fact, it is puzzling to us at ESI that there are, comparatively, so much fewer females than males in the business. Females have broken through the barriers in law enforcement, firefighting, the military, construction, and other traditional male domains.
I think it’s important, however, that all prospective agents, both male and female, have a clear, unromantic, reality-based view of executive protection. This is not James Bond. It is not an exotic routine of unmitigated excitement and glamour. It is largely routine, often boring work, with the biggest percentage of time spent doing meticulous detail work. It is long, long hours, with little privacy or concern for personal concerns. It’s hell on social life and very tough on marriages, as the assignment or job may take the agent away from home for long periods of time.
The rewards? Good agents make good money and derive a lot of satisfaction from doing a job well. Those agents who are proprietary agents can enjoy a fair amount of autonomy. If the job is finished and he or she wants to take some time off and sit in the sun in Bermuda, this is possible. If the agent works for a corporation, there are (probably) the usual corporate perks, otherwise known as employee benefits. There is a good chance of job tenure. And there is the opportunity to become engaged in some business activities not available in the proprietary arena.

Dr. Leonard C. Holifield extraordinaire, Chief Combatives Instructor to the United States Army for 10 years, has been charged with the task of gathering, mentoring, training, and leading, by faith, an elite group of agents that have vowed to “Protect the Principal, Protect the Symbol, and Protect the Image” by any means necessary. His reputation, “IMPRESSIVE”. I was honored, when accepted into an Executive Protection Training Course as a late registrant that his organization was hosting. Mid-way through the course, I had a “Déjà vu” moment, realizing that I had been positioned and was where I was meant to be, at that moment. The training course was conducted in a professional manner, punctual according to the assigned curriculum, and utilizing the organizations skilled, certified instructors, who were able to share their testimonies, made the course overall invaluable.
As a Female Business Owner, in a male dominant industry, I recommend the various courses given by Dr. Holifield through his organization. I will return for additional training and require all of my employees to take his courses.
Thank you for being the “Head” and not the “Tail”. You are a Strong, Fearless Leader whom I admire. Thank you for the Dedication and Passion you have for what you do and assisting me in being:
“Perfectly Positioned To Exceed Expectations!”
