You’re in Good Company


Incredible! I have attended classes where the instructor just read PowerPoints — our instructor added so much additional information to the class and knows the field of security inside and out! I was very pleased with his knowledge and instructional skills.

Sheree Moore, Mobile County Public Schools

I went to West Point for my bachelor’s, Columbia for my master’s and had multiple Army-led courses, and this ranks as one of the best, most engaging courses that I have ever had.

The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense and explained it in real-world scenarios that were able to be understood.
