Bodyguards on YouTube

A lot of people think they know what a bodyguard does. It is definitely not all about being chased by bad guys at 90 mph or shooting while hanging out of moving vehicles.

It is however, very similar to this YouTube video. This is a typical detail – picking up a client from the airport and escorting them back to their hotel or a shopping trip.

If you happen to be in Las Vegas in about three weeks, you can find out more about working as an Executive Protection Agent, as we will hold our “Introduction to Executive Protection” on 3/20/11.

Anyone who attends the one day training will have their fee reimbursed if they later decide to take one of our Personal Protection Specialist training programs.

Do you have what it takes to be a Bodyguard?

Introduction to Executive Protection in Las Vegas


There are many people across the United States who wonder what it would be like to be a bodyguard…how much money can you make, what it would be like to work with the rich and famous…

If you have ever considered working as an Executive Protection Agent, you may have researched the type of school you would need to attend for this specialized training. If you did, you probably know that the cost is a few thousand dollars.

For most people, that is a considerable investment – speaking of the short term anyway. Long term – it is little compared to college tuition and after you are certified, you can make a lucrative living and have an exciting career, that many others can only dream about.

If you are considering a career change,taking early retirement, or perhaps know someone who is thinking about Executive Protection as a career, wouldn’t it be better to find out first hand what is involved before paying out money for something that you/they are not even sure might be the right choice?

We think so, that is why we hold E.P. introduction classes in various cities around the United States. Our next Bodyguard Intro class will be held in downtown Las Vegas on 3/20/11. We will share all the “secrets” about being a bodyguard in that class. Attendees may ask as many questions as they need in order to decide if working as an Executive Protection Agent is really for them.

Some of the topics which will be discussed include; how much money you can expect to make – both in the U.S. and overseas (very important when it comes to getting an assignment as you want to be sure you are being paid a fair amount), how to work overseas, how to network and build a list of contacts that will assist you with employment, what a school should be teaching you,what they should be charging you (it is just as bad to pay too little as it is to pay too much), different laws in the U.S., when you can carry a weapon, etc.

This is only a small example of what you will learn during the presentation. The cost to attend the class is $125.00 and is a small investment when you consider it could save you $1000′s. As an added benefit, we will even refund the class fee to anyone who wishes to take our E.P. training in Las Vegas in September or, at any other location within 12 months of the presentation.

Remember, this presentation is not just for our training, but for the Executive Protection profession as a whole. Armed with all of the insider information we will give, you will be in a far better position to make an informed decision on not only where to train and how much to spend, but if this line of work is really for you.

Seating is strictly limited, so to reserve your place in class and to avoid disappointment, e-mail us at; training@sextonsecurity.com for a registration form today. Unless you would rather go to the introduction seminar in May – but that will be held in Bangkok.

Las Vegas – Introduction to Executive Protection 3/20/11

(Bodyguard) Training your way to success


I was talking to a colleague’s wife today who had been thinking of leaving her well paid job for greener pastures. She knew it would be difficult to find better as she is making very high five figures and has tenure and great benefits.

She was surprised though that she did not receive one reply after sending out 12 applications. Not even a “thank you”. She has now changed her mind about making any changes and is more content with the job she has.

If you work construction, admin or a customer service position, it’s difficult and time consuming to work your way up in the organization. Afterall, there are a lot of people who can do what you do and when that happens, upward mobility is limited. In other words, be careful about asking for a pay raise.

Training in Executive Protection is a different story, however. A person who has made up their mind to be an E.P. Agent can not only make good money, but can carve out a career that could involve working with celebrities (both pros and cons),working overseas, working in exciting locations, etc.

We should point out, that “making one’s mind up” is only a beginning. Specialized training is the most important step after you have decided that this is the right decision for you. This is the kind of training that SEXTON will be holding in Orlando from 11/7 – 11/13/10.

At this last Personal Protection Specialist training program of 2010, we will teach all attendees the importance of not only making up their minds to be E.P. Agents, but how to be the type of Agent who will build a great reputation and be requested to work for many different clients on many different assignments. The secret is not just to “Be”, but to “Be the Best”.

If you are ready to be the best, contact us at; training@sextonsecurity.com
to make sure your registration gets in before the deadline. Train to do a specialized job where companies will be looking for you. We know what we are talking about. We look for the best graduates from each class and hire them to protect our own clients.

Students attending our Las Vegas bodyguard training to get a discount

When bodyguards think of “shooting” it is usually the type of shooting involving guns. Not in October in Las Vegas, however! The SEXTON Security Training Academy is working on having their upcoming Personal Protection Specialist Training program filmed for television.

As a result, we are giving all students attending our Nationally acclaimed training in Las Vegas from 10/3 to 10/9 a $350 discount to offset any inconvenience experienced during the shooting. Discounts are also available for our Veterans wishing to attend training.

Class size will be strictly limited to allow for extra room needed by cameras and crew. The intense training week will culminate on the eve of graduation with a gala dinner and the announcement of the top performer of the week being presented with the coveted Sexton “MVP” award.
