What Do Our Graduates Say

As a veteran with special operations experience coupled with prior experiences in dignitary and executive protection, I've had the opportunity to train in many circumstances and with some of the best in the security industry. All that aside, Covered 6 is the only organization that put everything together for a security professional to know in a five-week program that is scale-able, hard hitting and dynamic while at the same time flexible to expand and incorporate emerging methodologies. This course challenged some of my previously held maxims and broke down training scars to enable embracing new paradigms. I can't say enough superlatives about the quality of instruction, the instructors and the whole program!

The skills I learned here, both hard and soft, will drive me forward for the rest of my life. The lessons and knowledge passed onto me from the instructors will be a huge benefit and driving force in my career as a Security Professional.

The Covered 6 Academy Executive Protection Course was a very informative, fun and eye opening experience. The instructors are masters of their craft and learning from them was a great privilege. The staff and management are very friendly and helped me with everything I needed to complete this course. Attending this course is an absolute must if you want to broaden your security expertise!

Covered 6 is a great academy to come to if you’re interested in any type of security training. It is no lie when they say it is the leading standard for this field of training. All of the instructors here are well-versed in their fields, and have a generous amount of great knowledge to give to the students. Wouldn’t have wanted to go anywhere else to start a career. Thank you guys!

Geared towards being a Veteran, this course allowed me to reconnect to the training and atmosphere I was accustomed to. In such a short period of time i believe most, if not all of the pertinent emergency medical and or tactical procedures that i learned in the military were covered. In my opinion this training was above any other type of standard that i've ever had, mainly due to the expertise and experience of the instructors themselves. Great experience!

Covered6 EP Academy was exceptional and run by true experts in the field. They all exemplified true professionalism in every course of instruction.

Doug Little

The course was well prepared definitely a great way to train and learn if anyone is wanting to get into the EP/PSS career field whether oversees or stateside. Highly recommend this training I see huge potential in this company and being able to adapt to new ways and areas to improve and train in the Executive protection and Protective Security Service.

We are two weeks into our EP training and I wanted to take a minute to shoot you a quick email. I am a bit of a training hound and have been through my fair share of security/EP related courses. So far, Covered 6 ranks as one of the better courses I have taken. The information and the way it is presented makes it easy to absorb and I never met a better group of subject matter experts as your instructors. Craig, Kevin, Jacob & Ralston bring a unique blend of knowledge that is obviously real world experience driven and not just out of a text book. Anyway, I could go on gushing for hours but what I really wanted to say is Thank You for allowing me this opportunity. It is greatly appreciated.

Covered 6 Academy is a 5 week course of both in class and hands on training. You first go through class work to introduce the new course of instruction then go hands on. The training offered by Covered 6 is well rounded from verbal de-escalation to physical defense tactics. The amount of experience from every instructor in this academy is hard to come by especially with it all being in one facility. I never knew this type of training can be offered in the security industry. Everything that was taught in this program is definitely of value and will help you advance in the field of security.

Great course with excellent staff who have the knowledge and experience in the Security field and actually invest in you. I got a job [with covered 6] immediately after graduating the 5 week course and can go back and receive additional training for free! You do not see that with any other company! Covered 6 is the way to go!

Clifford Barrow

Security Academy Graduate | Veteran

Covered 6 is an extraordinary training academy which is fortunate to have a professional and extremely knowledgeable teaching staff. As a military retiree who’s attended literally dozens of military and DoD/DA schools and courses, I would have to say the the level of training and guidance that I received at Covered 6 was at least as good as my military training and in some instances, far superior.

I would most definitely recommend this course to anyone who considers themselves professional security specialists as well as those who might be interested in getting into the private security realm.

I think Cover 6 Academy is the future of Security Training. The training was excellent, and it covered all phases of security.

I Justis D. Marriaga am a student at Covered 6 Academy and will agree to the fact and reasoning behind why they are the D.O.L’s National Standard of security.

Security Academy Graduate | Veteran

I attended the 5 week Executive Protection Class. Having some prior experience in the security field, attending this course not only strengthen my skills but I was also able to apply newly learned skills and broaden my horizon on the private side of the security field. The instructors are very knowledgeable and thorough with the subjects discussed in this course. From classroom practical exercise to live shooting & emergency response situations, everything learned has a purpose and could be applied to real world scenarios. Thank you covered 6 & staff.

 I wanted to send you a note to tell you thank you for your words in class about taking the not so great jobs to get to the ones you really want. I listened to every word you said in class and I wanted to thank you again for all you do and have done for me. I was just offered a job still not exactly where I wanted to be but I will as soon as I have my CCW. I am working for a female worth $600 million, an actor that has been up for six academy awards and also will be doing work for the owner of a NFL football team. I’m working in house security for them. Without your training and encouragement to work harder then every other person in the room I would not have worked my way to this stage of my career. Everyone has told me I set my eyes and aspirations too high but I know no other way of doing things. Just know that I appreciate all you do every day and sharing your wealth of knowledge to all of those you do. I feel people don’t say thank you enough and I can never say thank you enough. 

Tammy O'Brien

EP Graduate

 I just wanted to first thank everyone at Covered 6 for their time, knowledge, training and mentorship provided to me while being a student and security officer. I have nothing but good things to say about the staff members and employees. Without all of you, a job like this wouldn't have been attainable at this time in my life. I am excited to move forward, but I'll never forget where it all started.
