Pacific West Academy provides the training you need to be effective in any position in the security and protection fields.
Based on ASC’s years of experience in the field of security, a curriculum was developed for a 104-hour course that would provide the knowledge and certifications required to start a promising career as a protection agent. With the program’s success, it was time to change the mission statement of PWA. It was not enough to train future protection agents; it was PWA’s moral responsibility to aid in the placement of anyone who went through its training program. The goal became finding gainful employment for all students that attended the programs provided by PWA, as well as maintaining a level of education above the industry standard.
In 2016, development of a longer, more extensive and rigorous program began, which was then recognized by the Veterans Administration and received national accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET). This program stemmed from the influx of qualified security applicants leaving the military and hoping to stay in similar career fields. With a large knowledge base already in place, the more in-depth course served to further enhance the ability of students to gain employment in security management and executive protection positions, and it also provide a gateway to higher education opportunities in the criminal justice field. Finalized in late 2016, the Certified Executive Security Specialist program began in 2017, maintaining the goal of gainful employment while also drastically improving the level of education offered.
As a veteran-operated company, PWA lays the foundation for transition from the military world to the academic world. The environment at PWA facilitates a transition from the black and white of the military, to the full color spectrum of the civilian world, and prepares students to succeed in an academic environment. Upon completion of programs at PWA, students obtain a better understanding of what it takes to succeed academically, preparing them to move on to institutions of higher education and/or commence careers as protection agents.
Pacific West Academy’s experienced team is comprised of security, armed forces, and law enforcement veterans who have pooled together decades of knowledge and training from various countries and security backgrounds to create the most cutting-edge, tailor-made training programs.
