This video-based training was filmed in the classroom as the Founder and President of ESI, Mr. Bob Duggan trained aspiring Executive Protection Agents. Mr. Duggan spends several hours introducing and teaching the concept of Behavioral Intelligence, which is simply the skill of recognizing clues, mannerisms, and traits that indicate a Predator preparing to strike. This early recognition allows the
Protection Specialist to plan and execute an interdiction prior to the strike, thereby eliminating the threat hopefully before the Client is even aware of it. In addition to lectures, Mr. Duggan conducts simple exercises and demonstrations to drive home important concepts.

Micro Expressions: Learning to Hunt
Following the introduction to Behavioral Intelligence concepts, this video-based course continues the student’s training of students to be “Predator Hunters” using Behavioral Intelligence as the best method of identifying a predator and closing the distance to make preemptive intervention possible. The techniques require a mindset of funneling predators into a surveillance zone where contact can be made and a decision to go in hard or soft can be made. ESI Founder and President Mr. Bob Duggan will lead Executive Protection Residency students through this training during classroom sessions.

Protection Specialists are sometimes called upon to not only protect a High Net Worth Individual, such as a CEO of a major corporation but also to protect his or her family and personal property as well. This can include mansions, luxury apartments, compounds, yachts, etc. Protecting individuals at home differs from protecting them in public or at places of business, and this course illustrates the differences while training Protection Specialists to do just that. Mr. Barry Wilson of Anlance Security leads the lecture in this video-based course which includes demonstrations and a ‘virtual field trip’ to Mr. Bob Duggan’s home to demonstrate on-site considerations.
