Advanced Protective Security Operations Certification (APSOC)

Course Details

PFC is proud to announce the offering of APSOC, the next-level progression to our industry standard protection agent training certification, PSOC.  During Advanced PSOC, students will be instructed in overlapping personal security disciplines, which culminate in multiple field exercises, live fire training evolutions, and scenario-based detail operations.  Real-world feedback over the years has shown PSOC training to be directly credited with the operational success of graduate students and overall customer satisfaction of clients.  APSOC brings agent knowledge, skills, and abilities to a new orbit.  In order to graduate, students must pass three evaluations: a written exam, a graded detail practical, and a low-light Live Fire Skills Test.  Enrollment is restricted to previous PFC students who have successfully completed the Protective Security Operations Certification (PSOC) program.
