As a United States Air Force Veteran of 24 years, I spent my career training with Weapons and Heavy Equipment. Mr. Lenny Bogdanos and staff are the best trainers I have had the opportunity to work with since retiring from the military. In my opinion, every active or retired military member should attend this International Executive Protection School. It would only benefit your career. I highly recommend this training for any person that wants to protect themselves, others and their loved ones. It's the "best training" for the dangerous world we live in today. It give you peace of mind.

I attended the last class in May 2016, as someone who just entered into the field of Executive Protection. I needed someone to help me with enhancing my skill sets and was more than grateful I chose this course. Mr. Lenny Bogdanos and his team of instructors, were very thorough in all aspects of this training. Lenny's body of knowledge and information was very "SELFLESS" to help us be the best and confident agents when we go back home. I'm preparing myself to come back for Level 2 classes so I can further enhance my skills and career and hangout with Lenny and the crew.

I recently attended a three-day Executive Protection course (May, 2016) lead by Mr. Lenny Bogdanos and and his instructors. Lenny possesses a vast knowledge of the EP and Bodyguard training. This course was phenomenal!!! Through the training I received, I am able to execute my duites with greater skill and confidence. I would highly recommend this comprehensive course to anyone who is looking to advance their career and to stand "head and shoulders" above the rest in this industry.

HI my name is Brent. I am working in the military and wanted something to do for myself. I got involved in doing protection for international performers during Tobago Jazz festival. That worked out well. After doing these details, I was informed to get certified in the field of EP. In November 2015, I did my research and enrolled myself in the 3 day Level 1 class, which was held in January 2016. During that class, I submitted payment right away for the Level 2 Advanced course to be held in February 2016. All of this was done due to the level of professionalism displayed by all of the instructors. My eyes were opened to a lot of techniques and the correct approach in executive protection and bodyguarding. Thanks Mr Lenny Bogdanos.

Please allow me to describe my experience with IEP class 14-16 November 2014. This course and the instructor were beyond the call of duty when it comes to E.P. Academy. I enjoyed the classroom and the hands on detail. This should be everyone's Professional stop into coming into this field. Mr. Bogdanos' school have is good standard for E.P.. The Tactical Gun Takeaway Course was excellent. The knowledge and experience that he gives to his students is enough to have your cup running over. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a Academy to start here. I was able to polish up and manage my skills better because of his foundation of teaching. Whenever students can do two live details, and bring home two certifications, and a letter of recmomendation is a great opportunity to invest in yourself. If this is over kill then let it be, because I really enjoyed this learning and networking experience. Thank you Mr. Bogdanos! Deonarine Fluonia / Team Alpa.

As a retired vet, I got into the Security Industry to give me something to do. I attended many courses and gained almost every certification needed to be successful, only one was missing, certification as a EP Agent. I spent hours and endless hours searching for the right course, so happens, while working as a Federal Security Officer in Tampa FL, Mr. Bogdanos was doing a detail that required him to come the Federal Building in Tampa. First thing I noticed, pure professionalism he displayed. After work, I started researching who Mr. Bogdanos was, what was he about. Luckily for me, he runs an EP course. I just recently attended his 3 day course, have nothing but praise for Mr. Bogdanos and his staff. Professional, knowledgeable and what was very striking, HUMBLE!! Never once, did Mr. Bogdanos or his staff display the the common mistakes most Instructors display - the "I am better than you attitude". 3 days of intense training, very affordable and accommodating. If you have 3 days to spare, I highly recommend that you attend this course if you are interested in getting into the Personal Protection Field.

I took the three day course over the weekend. I was absolutely impressed with the instructor and what I learned being a type A personality. It was good to find some other alpha males. I recommend the class to anyone looking to get a better understanding of what EP really is. Great Class

Outstanding course of instruction with a truly superior level of instructor involvement. Having served in the Marine Corps and in two Federal Law Enforcement agencies involved in counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operations, I was extremely impressed with the level of information and amount of hands-on practical application required by the students. Being "old school", I firmly believe hands-on training is absolutely essential in the learning process. I strongly encourage anyone considering Executive Protection training to take Lenny's course. I am looking forward to attending his Level-II Advance Course in 6-months. God Bless & Semper Fi !

Last year I began to search for an Executive Protection firm to not only familiarize myself with the Executive Protection industry, but gain an advanced understanding of where I could potential leverage and utilize those resources on a global corporate scale. Through a third party, I was introduced to Mr. Lenny Bogdanos and his firm, International Executive Protection in Clearwater, Florida. I recently completed their Executive Protection Level I workshop and found the IEP training, staff and leadership to be extremely well organized, professional and committed to creating a win for all involved respective to relevant, real world and hands on Executive Protection training. Their training methodology and techniques communicate in a way which allowed their training staff to present their solutions in an effective and impactful format. It is quite obvious their training staff are Executive Protection subject matter expertise crafted from real-world global experiences. This allowed them to tackle a variety of complex training categories and arenas with ease. I found IEP staff worked extremely efficiently and effectively in a team environment, customizing their training approach to fit the unique needs and fluid dynamics of their customer, rather than trying to force a rigid process onto the student body. The bottom line is that they made my EP training experience memorable, impactful, and most importantly, extremely value added. Their commitment to creating a win for all involved is something I appreciated not only as a student, but as a busy global executive wanting to get best EP training from the best in the industry. I’m looking forward to not only attending the Advanced Level II training later in the year, but utilizing IEP for my domestic and international protection needs. Sincerely, Jason Ledbetter
