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

Have to say being trained by Lenny and his crew has been a great experience. Lenny is an honest, down to earth, hard working individual. I learned a lot in the 3 days and he is not about quantity, but quality for he will spend his time to make sure he trains you well. Thank you from myself and the kids of BACA!!!!!

Just competed the 3 day EP Level 1 course. The amount of information and hands on experience given goes above and beyond what one can expect in a three day basic course. There was a continuous stream of information and exercises. The instructors are a wealth of knowledge and expertise, willing to push us to our limits, adding on layers of strategies as we progressed. Most important, Lenny and his IEP instructor team take an absolute interest in each student. Enough can not be said on the ability to take a class from complete strangers to a team in that short amount of time. It shows how deeply IEP regards sending CPO's out ready to maintain the epitome of industry standards. At any level you arrive, you will leave ready. My biggest takeaway is understanding my weaknesses and knowing what I have to work on from a personal aspect. You will be hard pressed to find all that from any other training school.

I have just done the 3 day course and I can say it is a very well planned and well presented course, by a consummate professional team of vast experience. Lenny goes out of his way to be a friendly, approachable teacher, that knows how to get the best results out of the students. His instructional techniques are among the best I have seen, even after 18 years in the British Airborne. A very humble and successful man. What International EP teaches and delivers is real world training and I have left the course feeling very confident in my new found skills. I'm certain to go onto the advanced level 2 course and develop further the skills I have learned.

I was looking for a comprehensive course that would give me the base information and training to move forward in the field of Executive Protection. I received much more than I expected by Lenny Bogdanos and his team of professionals. No frills,no hype, no smoke and mirrors. The extensive three day basic course totally educated me on the myths and misconceptions of professional Executive Protection Specialists and the field in which they work. Don't waste your time and money anywhere else. You will not regret taking this course, except wishing you had done it sooner! Thanks again Lenny!

Travel for IEP training program level I round trip from almost 20000 miles, from EU to US and it's worth every mile and penny invested in. Someone wise has said "IF YOU WANT TO BE THE BEST, YOU MUST LEARN FROM THE BEST." So I did. It's absorbed knowledge for a lifetime. If you are looking for laid back training which will be a few weeks long... you are in the wrong place, but if you are looking for a real deal top notch, fast as you can get intensive training, you are in the right place now. Do not miss it if you are serious in Security/BG EP business. I will be back for sure for Level II. At the end I want to say thanks to all my class brothers and sis as well and to Mr. Lenny B and the whole IEP Crew. Thank you for all, was privilege getting to know you and learn from No. 1 professionals like you are. All best and God bless you all. "Rad" (Austria,EU)

Here is a real problem facing security agencies today. How do you train your licensed security personnel in close executive protection techniques without sending them away to courses costing over $7000 and lasting a month? Those comprehensive EP courses do turn out well trained specialists that understand the global threat and crisis management. However what we need is an affordable basic course that can train an individual how to operate as a member of a close protection detail, that can react to a lethal threat, and not be a liability to our company. Lenny Bogdanos and his company International EP LLC provides that solution. His course was built on his own company’s need for close protection specialists to work on his high profile event contracts. Another member of our management team and I took part in his three day Executive & Dignitary Protection course in March 2015. We were impressed by our experience. The course was conducted in a vacant office building that was an outstanding training venue for this type of course. There was no death by PowerPoint classes here. We were presented the essentials in the classroom and immediately went out to various training areas to drill these concepts to competency. Each functional area was taught by a knowledgeable expert in his field. Gun take away was taught by black belt martial artists from a local martial arts studio, active shooter response and live fire range was taught by an active duty SWAT team commander, and Lenny taught close protection detail operations based on his experience in providing these services to local events. We were so impressed by our experience that we will send all of our close protection detail members to be trained by International EP LLC in the future. The course is affordable, does not waste training time and turns out individuals drilled to competency. Bottom line: if we need supplemental personnel for a close protection contract, we will be looking for graduates of this course. Bill Chalfant Director of Operations Spectrum Intelligence Group LLC

Training with Lenny was one of the best experiences I ever had. He's there to push you through. I didn't think I was going to make it. But he won't let you quit. If you want to be the best, you have to train with the best! I would recommend everyone to take the Level 1 training course. It was worth traveling from Michigan.

I just want to say thank you to you and your Team of outstanding instructors. That was one hell of a three day basic course. As I told you yesterday, I have over 40 different certifications, so I have been to a lot of schools, but yours Sir ranks at the top of my list. Outstanding class and outstanding team work. Great job by all. I look forward to training again with you and your team very soon. God Bless and stay Safe.
