“Just finished the 6-week PROTECTIVE INTELLIGENCE & THREAT ASSESSMENT Training course offered by Global Options & Solutions (no downtime on the VDI disaster/flood relief convoy!). Great course with good presentation and information based on sourced information. The course actually provided some inspiration for modification and improvements to PROTECTION FROM ABUSE’S Protective Services programs. Raffaele Di Giorgio thank you sir!”

“I have just completed my 6-week online training course from Global Options & Solutions, for Protective Intelligence and Threat Assessment Training. There was a lot of information presented with in this 6-week course. It was very educational and the final test was a bit of a teaser, had to pay attention to the wording, but that is what an investigation is about. Pay attention to the details. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the law enforcement and criminal justice communities. Raffaele Di Giorgio has put together this information and made it informative and simple to comprehend.”
