Risk Assessment and Management
Nottingham Sword & Shield Security | Nottingham Training Systems

Professionals, celebrities, and other high-risk individuals deal with an increased threat of violence on a daily basis. While a bodyguard is a popular (if costly and sometimes bothersome) option, this is simply not an option for a large number of people.

But what is just as good as having your own personal bodyguard? How about training with somebody who holds the same qualifications as the most sought-after bodyguards in the business? You can indeed become your own bodyguard, without the years of training normally associated it.

John Nottingham, EPS has trained and graduated in several of the most advanced and well-respected programs in the personal protection business, including:

Graduate of Gavin de Becker & Associates Advanced Threat Assessment and Management
Graduate Academy for Protectors
Graduate of BTI Bodyguard Training International
ASIS Security Executive Protection Certified by Robert Oatman (Secret Service Agent)

In addition, Master Nottingham is the founder of NTS — a personal safety, tactical and security training company. Through NTS, Master Nottingham is able to offer all the benefits of attending all of these high-profile schools, in a fraction of the time, and tailored to suit exactly your needs. In addition to offering individual training and services, Master Nottingham also offers personal security-related seminars in various cities.
