He, along with multiple other experts within the defense fields, have created multiple training programs, security assessments, and security planning for the employees of corporations, banks, legal corporations, health care and home health, real estate agents and such companies, law enforcement, military personnel, precious gem / metal companies, transportation industries, along with training and security assessments/ planning for differing governmental entities, both foreign and domestic.
Adam brings his unique combination of military and police expertise into the classroom and range times for an engaging and thought-provoking learning experience. The courses are crafted to carefully communicate the seriousness of defensive and firearm use to a civilian audience – that is, the average person. Far from the dry and boring training of the traditional training, these courses draw the student into the learning process with true to life stories, interactive discussion, and hands-on exercises – all seasoned with a lot of goodhearted humor. On the range, the instruction and coaching bring to life in our students strong foundational skills in a safe and controlled environment to help prepare the student for the dangerous, uncontrolled environment that happens at the speed of life.
