“Met and exceeded all of my expectations…no shortcuts during the delivery of the lectures. The instructor should be the standard by which all instructors should be judged.”

“From the very beginning of the course, it was apparent that Mr. Gundry was highly educated and very experienced in the subject matter he was presenting. This gave him credibility and ease in delivery. 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.”
