What Clients Say

“Jonathan has the ability to connect with our employees while delivering this sensitive content. Many of us entered the training session scared but left empowered that we could handle an Active Shooter Situation. His ability to mix up lecture and hands on practice made me realize how simple it is to be safe!”

Marie, Private Educational Institution

“When Jon came to evaluate our campus for an Onsite Risk Assessment and we scored poorly. He was able to identify areas of improvement to our operations, property management and security team which instantly made our employees and students feel more secure.”

Tiffany, Private Education Manager

“Coming from a law enforcement and executive protection background, I have had several classes relating to this area over the years. However, I found this particular training by Tomer Benito to be the best counter terrorism training I have ever received. These instructors were extremely experienced and their lecture and training techniques were first-rate and extremely informative. I strongly recommend that this course taught by these two instructors be offered to all DHS management. I’m afraid that we as a federal agency are so misinformed and under-informed in this area that it reduces our ability to accomplish our mission and objectives. I understand that terrorism is only one of our primary areas of responsibility, but I find it very alarming how little most of us know in this area.”
