Faith-based Security Training

    Welcome to Fort Sherman Academy! We are one of the largest providers in the world for travel security courses, crime survival, crisis management instruction and high-risk hostage survival training to civilians and faith-based workers.   To date, we have trained over 20,000 short and long-term missions personnel worldwide in courses varying from the most basic training to the most advanced to include full, practical exercises (1 to 11 days).  To date, 68 of our graduates have since endured a kidnapping, illegal detention, carjacking, home invasion, or other violent crime in the course of their work or travel overseas - 67 of those graduates are alive and free as you read this webpage. Experience continues to demonstrate that preparation and training can increase safety for individuals traveling with your organization, and can help guarantee the continuation of your ministry and outreach into the future.
