The following are comments from students who have recently attended S2 courses.

Regarding the S2 Anti-Terrorism Officer Course:

"In all of my travels and training, military and civilian, I rarely have the pleasure of encountering such professional instructors and presentations. The knowledge possessed and demonstrated by the instructor staff sets the bar for all civilian training agencies to follow. The training you are providing to security personnel, military personnel and law enforcement professionals, is unmatched by civilian readiness training for the war on terror.”
J. White

U.S. Special Operations Command
Regarding the S2 Florida "D" License Course:

"I came to the course being forewarned by others who had attended courses from other schools to be prepared to sit there for two days and do nothing but watch movies and listen to boring lectures about what the law requires. What I found in Jay Pace was a highly motivated speaker who was thoroughly knowledgable about the subjects he taught and made them extremely exciting and interesting to listen to...I plan to recommend your course to others in my field so that they may benefit as well. Thank you again and let me say what a super job Jay and you did on your presentations."

Regarding the S2 Assessing Terrorism Related Risk Workshop:

“I just returned to the Washington area after attending the Terrorism Related Risks 2 day course. This email is sent as kudos for a very interesting and informative course that will be of value to me and others that I interact with. Mr. Gundry is an outstanding instructor who displays a deep understanding of his subject, who keeps the interest of the students and created a solid course... Please note, that I am an intelligence and security professional with 40 years of experience in the field. I am currently the principal Analytical Risk Management instructor/facilitator for the DoD [redacted] Academy and taught the subject for [redacted] et al for some four years prior to my stint with [redacted]. I mention this to emphasize Mr. Gundry's evident expertise in the subject and the fact that old guys like me still have much to learn from others.”

“Excellent, comprehensive course. Mr. Gundry is very knowledgable and is an excellent instructor. I highly recommend this course to other security and AT professionals.”

J.W.
United States Coast Guard
Regarding the S2 Florida "D" License Course:

"I had the greatest opportunity to be trained by Mike Partain. As a retired NYPD Police Officer, former Federal Law Enforcement Officer (USCG) and a licensed Security Officer in NY State, I have over 30 years of experience. I thought I was trained by the best until I was trained by Mike Partain.

Mike's dedication, experience, passion for the field brought me to a different level. As a instructor for the American Red Cross Mike demonstrated teaching techniques that I myself will use with my students. If I was trained by more instructors like Mr. Partain I feel I could have been even a better asset to the community that I served. Thanks to Mike I will now be able to do so.

I'm looking forward to continue my education and training with S2 Institute and I am very proud to be a S2 Institute alumni and member."

Regarding the S2 Principles of Private Investigations Course:

“The information taught in the course by Jim Lee I have found to be very useful in conducting background checks, home address, birthday matching and tracking persons across the country. This class gives you the knowledge tools, where to find them and how to use them according to your type of investigation. I worked a case were I tracked two individuals from another country using a e-mail system. Had it not been for the class I would have come up empty handed, as some of the other persons whom were working the same case had come to.

Robert Logan

Regarding the S2 Principles of Protective Services & Detail Operations Course:

“In December of 2002, I retired as a major from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office in Tampa, Fl. During my career, I was able to attend Secret Service Dignitary Protection Training, Executive Protection Training through Kobetz & Associates in Winchester Va., and numerous seminars and workshops dealing with the topic. Some was more theory oriented, but most was hands-on.

In my new role as Director for Corporate Security, the responsibility for protecting our executives, both at home and abroad, falls to our team. All of us have attended the S2 Intelligence Institute courses in Executive Protection and believe them to be excellent. Tim O'Rourke is an experienced instructor who challenges his students with common sense strategies and superior techniques."

The thorough and deliberate coverage of the terrorist mindset, methodologies, and information requirements in the first half of the program made the second half of the program more relevant.”
