right now I'm running a full realm 6 element head of state mission. If someone that ran with blackwater or triple c applied they wouldnt get the job because they are essentially a one trick pony.

If on the other hand i was hiring for my patrol and perimeter defence crew (force pro) they would be a good fit.

so the question is what are you wanting to prep for ?

executive pro? diplo pro? force pro? fashion accessory to a star? simple security escorts / bodyman ??

all have their own skillsets ?
Many of individuals have went on to do EP (too include heads-of-state) for the above mentioned companies that you mention.

BW (former) was doing EP work for heads-of-state before they even started Force-Pro work and I would highly suggest you do some research on TC history amongst other companies....
Education is acquired through the formal institutions like school, colleges, and universities, whereas knowledge is gained from the real-life experiences.
Education is all about gaining theoretical knowledge in the classroom or any institution. Training is a way to develop specific skills, whereas education is a typical system of learning.
