Comments by trainees who took the course:

Very user friendly, informative and highly applicable to my current Law Enforcement role. Thank you for a wonderful course!

As a law enforcement officer for 32 years and the Security Team Director at our church for 7 years I found the comparison between the roles of law enforcement and security interesting. For years I have had to be able to articulate reasonable suspicion in my law enforcement duties. I believe your description of how to relate suspicion indicators to AMO’s is the best teaching I have ever received in this regard. As a supervisor and FTO I will utilize this information in my duties.
This course is very helpful and well done.  Thank you!

Interesting, professional, accurate, very useful.

Great course–great information. Really does provide more insight into how to assess risk.

As a security trainer for my company. I found this information presented in this course valuable. I will also insist that my Chief take this course as well to see if we can get our officers to take this course also.

Very useful and change my view of a security. Concept of threat vs risk is very interesting and changed my way of thinking.
