ISA expiriance changed on better not just my skills and knowledge, it changed myself, gave me more self-confidence and showed me that just the sky is a limit.
There is my story: I am Robert Valdec, from Croatia, joined training program as reporter cause I wanted to write about. It was 2004., I was 41 y/o. After few days I wanted to give up, but Mirza made a trick – when, in the evening in Switzerland (where was first part of training) I planned to tell on the front of group that I am leaving, he told before – I name Robert as team leader. I stayed, passed Switzerland, after Israel (Israeli armed&unarmed, Close protection three weeks, than Close protection in High Risk Zones…).
Honestly, it changed my life a lot. I didn’t enter in the job, but as reporter from High Risk Zones, this expiriance and knowledge help me a lot. I was war reporter before (ex-Yugoslavia, Middle East, Afghanistan/Pakistan, Iraq…), but after ISA training I started to work more intensive and from more danger zones (just last year twice Syria, three times Iraq).
ISA gave me, except knowledge and expiriance, a lot of contacts all over the world in security field, showed me that everything is in the had and if you want, you can do everything. Even old asshole like me can run and fight against twice younger, well-trained guys. If you need more, be my guest and let me know.
