2013 EPS Training Manual Version 2
The manual is complete and is in production, once we start to fill our back-orders, we will open general ordering.
The original EPS 1 Training Manual has been completely overhauled for 2012.  This manual is gear towards anyone in the security industry, looking for current real world application; this 400+ page manual is great for the beginner to the seasoned veteran, a reference guide critical for anyone serious about executive protection.
In addition to the updates, the manual itself has gone through an overhaul – from requests of students, we have streamlined the manual – 2-sided printing, spiral bound (no more huge binder), the manual weighs half as much, flexible and is easily stored in your gear bag, and the best part – the manual is half as much as our previous version.
