The Academy


Operative Security Academy was formed to provide training to security professionals, Law enforcement and military personnel that wish to enter the VIP Protection industry or merely want to upgrade their present knowledge and skills.



The Concept


In the country of Finland with its beautiful and rugged nature we combine the knowledge and experience of two proud and vigil nations.

The Finnish and Israeli, who have throughout time battled against overwhelming odds and prevailed. We will push our students to reach a higher level of professional competency so they can walk proudly amongst their colleagues while protecting their VIP.


Training with us


The training will mostly be conducted east of Helsinki, giving our students the possibility to focus and at the same time it will enable us to conduct training missions in a larger city.

We also offer In Country Training (ICT) where we can bring a team of instructors to your country and train your staff.
For more information about ICT please send an e-mail to: matti@opsecacademy.com
