Physical Security Specialist Academy


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 program is accredited by the Veterans Administration (VA) for Post 9/11 veterans and the Bureau for Private and Post-Secondary Education (BPPE).

As part of this program, Covered 6 is offering a certified academy. This academy 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 Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), 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 Academy 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 academy 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. 

We are proud to accept the Post 9/11 GI Bill as well as other funding sources.

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!

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.
