Glad I came here for both D and G classes. Mac was extremely informative and professional. He also took the time to answer questions and instruct me on firearm posture. I will come back for all my re-qualification courses.

I've been in security for 33 years and still was able to learn from Mac. His experience and knowledge are top level. Always best to learn from a person with experience rather than any book. Nothing will ever be as valuable as experience . Thank you Mac for giving me the tools and knowledge to be better at what I do.

Completed the D and G course with Mac of The Right Training. I got a 95% on the D written exam, and 100% on the G written exam. I shot 235/240 on range qualification day. Outstanding training by a world class instructor with a positive and joyful attitude. I refer all others to go see Mac before they want to work with me. I'm a former USMC Force Recon Scout and spent 15 years with DOD. Mac made be a better security officer. Trust, but verify! Mac is doing what others should be doing. He holds the line and teaches to standard. He inspires. He teaches. He trains. He cares. He doesn't make favorites. He trains Security Officers. Keep your phone off, your ears and eyes turned on and follow instructions and you too can be a champion. Macs training is step #1 for all prospective Security Officers.
