Program Details

The Senior Level Certificate in Executive Protection program at Henley-Putnam University is designed for individuals already involved professionally in the field of protection services, who wish to advance current skills in protection management. The entry and mid level executive protection certificates offered from Henley-Putnam can serve as precursors for this program. Students will learn advanced skills in protecting important clients such as politicians and celebrities from impending incidences.

Students will learn how to prevent crises as well as how to respond properly to them. Participants will study skills in conducting and maintaining operations as leaders and managers, and learn to plan methods of operations. Area studies will be an area of focus where students can learn the role of political analysts and the tools they use. Students will conduct research on political issues related to intelligence as a means of weighing various factors that influence political situations that have the potentiality to develop. Low-probability and high-impact situations will also be analyzed.

The course studies the dynamics of terrorist groups and the threats they pose on clients. Students will study terrorist’s processes in making decisions, the structure of a group, and its internal power. Evaluating and identifying multiple structures in various groups, the hierarchy process, and other internal dynamics that determine how much of a threat a group poses will also be explored. Students will also study concepts in organizational theory that can be used to infiltrate and stop terrorist groups. Finally, the curriculum discusses management during possible of acts of terrorisms (with a focus on weapons of mass destruction), and natural disasters. Here, students will gain an introduction to the Incident Command System at federal, state, and local levels and its role in dealing with such incidences.
