As an instructor at Academi I utilized my specialized training and experience in the fields of Law Enforcement, SWAT, Close Protection, International Security, and Professional Driving to effectively communicate training objectives while forming an understanding of why the skills being instructed are paramount to the students’ success. As an Academi Instructor I presented course material, observed students’ performance, implemented training theories of building block method and topic association (associating known to unknown) to convey the desired training outcome.
