One of these training scenarios is executive protection
training. Executive protection operations are usually quite diverse, and the environment you operate in keeps changing continuously. From situational awareness and preventive strategies to shooting engagements, and hostile extractions, there are so many things that security personnel need to train to become effective in executive protection.
Conventional bodyguard training methods can never be enough to train all of these skills in tandem, however, modern shooting simulators can be an excellent solution. These simulators have loads of different simulations, which incorporate a wide range of locations including private residences, hotels, aircraft, boats, and other venues.
They use branching decision trees, in conjunction with artificial Intelligence to create dynamic simulations that respond to the actions of the trainees. If they make a mistake, they have to deal with its consequences and move on to find solutions, as they would need to do on the battlefield. Opposed to that, in conventional training, the consequences of making mistakes in the field are not explored, which can actually result in building negative habits.
