We (ISDA) are in the process of researching the EP training business. In the course of our research, we came across an interesting metric. Without searching for EP -Security Driving training in a two-week time frame, we were exposed to over 70 Training providers. If we extended the time frame, the number would be higher; our non-scientific estimate would be in the 90’s. These programs appeared in our social media feed. We did not search for them – where we ran across them were mostly in the Facebook Bodyguard Groups. Usually, the result of a “what training program should I attend” or “how do I break into the EP business” post. What struck us was, how does someone new or inexperienced make a decision, and how do all these programs survive? Can the profession accommodate those the graduates of these programs?
What are your thoughts?
