I attended J.A. Lasorsa & Associates and I can say Joe gave a lot of information and he made you want to learn. His class was full of excitement and it was a great learning experience…I would advise anyone who is interested in E.P. Training that does not have a lot of money and wants training – to attend one of Joe’s classes. You will love it…….Thanks Joe…

I really enjoyed the course. I liked going on the road and doing the body guard exercises. I learned a lot, some of it I can use at my armored business. I just went on ASIS site and plan on being CPP certified. I hope to make the transition into the body guard field. You are a really good instructor. Thanks again,
On October 27-30th 2010, I attended the J. A. LaSorsa & Associates Executive Protection Agent Training Course.
The training you provided was A1 Excellent! The fundamentals and intense overview of EP critical success strategies and real world techniques were invaluable. I recommend this doctrine and training course to novices looking to enter the EP industry and seasoned professionals as an amazing refresher.
In my opinion, the live Protection Detail Operations give the agents an inside look into the techniques and contingencies needed for real world application.
I look forward to working with you on an Executive Protection Operation… anything, anytime, any place.
With Warm Regards,
“Kudos to you for providing great doctrine and awesome training! It was genuinely a breath of fresh air…”

“I started my business last year and wanted more training in addition to my experience in the protection industry. I was recommended by a former FBI Agent as well as various industry professionals to go to Mr. Joe LaSorsa’s class. I attended LaSorsa’s protection specialist course and also had a couple of my employees attend as well. This was a complete eye opener and also was well worth the funds it took to get everyone to the class. The experience and education gained in the classroom and out in the real world, is not something I can put a price tag on. Having worked with Joe again after the class was complete, I can tell you that if you decide to take a class, you will have a lifetimes worth of knowledge and skill learned in just your first meeting. Joe is a professional and a man of integrity. Trinity Protection Group will always recommend Joe LaSorsa’s expertise.”

I recently took Joseph Lasorsa’s “Executive Protection Agent” course. I am a working Executive Protection agent and have been for the past 20 years making a living doing so. I am a firm believer in reinforcing one’s skill set and refreshing our attitudes toward our work. Joe’s course exceeded my expectations focusing on those elements of protection that help us do what we are paid to do. PROTECT. If we are punching people standing too close to the luggage, or putting the paparazzi in a headlock all the while leaving the protectee alone the point has been missed. Threat Assessment and Advance coupled with solid detail formation and execution is the real deal. If you are serious about this business you need to take this course.

Thanks for the opportunity to learn from someone with real world experience. I particularly appreciated the honesty and liked the opportunity to learn how to handle a principal in a one or two man detail scenario. The dynamics are considerably different, primarily how we move with one agent.
All the best and stay safe.
