Physical Security Specialist Program (PSS)


Veterans wanted! Start your new career today.
The new National Standard for the US Department of Labor.

Covered 6 is proud to offer a US Veteran and civilian professional security training program. We designed this program to help our fellow Veterans transitioning back into the civilian workplace. Tapping into years of experience and training, we provide the most comprehensive training program available. 

This certificate program consists of 40 | 80 | 200 hour course of security, law enforcement and academic instruction, which combines classroom, scenarios with and without UTM, hands on and interactive training evolutions in our state of the art facility. Some of the topics taught are Defensive Tactics (armed / unarmed), Less Lethal Force, Service Pistol Training, NAEMT Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC), Executive Protection, Surveillance, Verbal De-Escalation, Report Writing, and much more.

Several certifications will be awarded upon the successful completion of the curriculum. Upon  graduation of the Physical Security Specialist Program you will receive a course certificate that verifies your successful completion of the Department of Labor National Standard Program. This course will also result in certifications from the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services Guard Card / Exposed Firearms Permit, Chemical Agents (OC), Taser International,  American Red Cross First Aid / CPR / AED,  TCCC (NAEMT) and others.

In addition to training security personnel to a higher standard we believe that an equal amount of focus should be spent on placing our graduates in job positions throughout the country in the Private Security Sector. We hire and fill positions within our company as well as with our affiliates in industries such as technology, aerospace, education, and more.

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 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!

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!

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 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.
