Online Education

SECFOR 360 is a division of SECFOR International that delivers complete risk management, staffing & Online Certificate Programs to students worldwide.. These online modules are self-paced and only require an internet connection. Optional, accelerated Hands-on training programs are available to online students. The final section of the online certificate course utilizes 360 degree video. Our fist online course, Route mapping for Protection Specialists, can be viewed HERE

SECFOR International is still providing services & consulting. SECFOR’s founder and CEO has been traveling to hostile regions for almost 30 years, and still protects clients in challenging environments such as Lebanon, Brazil, Mexico, Haiti, Iraq, Venezuela, and many other locations. Though we are still providing risk management services, we are expanding our international training footprint to reach newcomers in the security industry as well as experienced protection professionals.

This 20-lesson certificate program contains all of our modules at a discounted price


Are these courses available now?

We launched the Route Mapping Course. This self-paced 10 hour program is the base to all of our protective courses. See the course syllabus HERE. The full online Protective Security Certificate program will be available late Summer due to the current COVID travel restrictions preventing our team from gathering the video content. We will deduct the cost of the Route Mapping course, and any individual modules taken now, from the full cost of the online PSC program.

Do you still offer hands-on training?

Absolutely! We will start running our in-person hard-skills training as soon as travel and gathering restrictions ease. Until then, you can start training online here

I don’t live in the USA, can I take your online courses?

Yes you can. Anyone with an internet connection will have access to our online programs
