 Questions About This Course?


Byron Rodgers

During my time in the military, I served in the United States Marine Corps infantry with two deployments to Iraq as a Squad Leader for four years. Right afterward, I became an Executive Protection Agent.

Today, I proudly serve as the Chief Executive Officer at Bravo Research Group, a private security company out of Southern California. I’m the founder of Protector Nation, a training company for first responders, private security professionals and civilians designed to help good people become more dangerous.

I own and operate my own executive protection school and training organization called The League of Executive Protection Specialist, where I help private security professionals take their careers to the next level. 

Our Instructors:

When not instructing, our team work assignments in Syria, Mexico, Iraq, Haiti, Lebanon, Colombia, West Africa, Bosnia, & other elevated risk areas of the world. In addition, our training staff have acted as U.S. Government Training Program Management & instructors before moving into the protection industry working for Fortune 100 Corporations, High Net Worth individuals, Government Personnel, Celebrity clients, Media Professionals, and Humanitarian Groups. 
A lot of people say that success is "all about who you know". But that is not entirely accurate, success has a lot more to do with Who Knows You... That is why being a member of an elite inter-industry networking group is so beneficial to your career. It provides you with unlimited opportunities for finding new details, new opportunities and expanding your influence within this tight knit community.
