Oatman’s school for Executive Protection.
The instructors at Oatman’s school were all seasoned with protection details for top executives and officials. They spoke from a vast pool of knowledge and experience. The training covered real world scenarios of details across the glove, some of which Robert Oatman spearheaded. The class and “practical’s” were clever and professional. I will make it required training for my other team members. Robert Oatman and his training team are the best.
