Executive Protection Institute (EPI)

At this moment, graduates of the Executive Protection Institute are personally protecting hundreds of military and government leaders, business and religious executives, families and celebrities. EPI, founded by Dr. Richard Kobetz, has set the standard for personal protection in today's world.

Dr. Richard Kobetz is the innovator and pioneer of modern personal protection. He founded EPI in 1978 after a celebrated career in law enforcement, including assignment by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to develop and conduct training programs for the protection of public figures, SWAT operations, and counter-terrorism programs.

He created a professional credential for the job - Personal Protection Specialist (PPS) - that was adopted by the State of Virginia, which now requires a PPS certificate for personal protection employment. EPI graduates receive immediate recognition in the security field for having distinguished themselves by receiving this invaluable credential upon graduation.
