The folks at Ground Operations Development (G.O.D.) are doing world class training! In our Sheepdog House of Worship Safety Seminars, we encourage training as the key requirement for any team, and the good folks at G.O.D. are exactly that kind of trainers sheepdogs should seek out. They trained my good friend and co-author Stephanie Rogish, and she was blown away by the quality of instruction.
I'm so thankful our church has made the safety of its congregation a priority by providing training for our security team. Not only is the chuch safer, but the public in general as well for having that many more good guys out there who know how to react if the ``awful awful`` should happen.
If you get a chance to attend their training courses do not pass it up. Above and beyond great instructors who have a passion for what they are teaching. I've seen nothing better.
I took Tactical Rifle Deployment on 2-13-16. Great class taught by professionals. We had a 4 hour class and Shawn and the other instructors were able to fit more knowledge and practical training into that time than I have previously seen. Several small details were worth the cost of the course and overall they exceeded the modest fee. The instructors taught longer than they were required and never hesitated, they wanted the students to have the information and time on the range. At the end of the class the only question I had was when is the level 2 class.
The Guardian program has provided us with information we were not even aware of... to help us do all that we can to protect our congregation.
