I put on a security uniform for the first time in 1977 when I was working my way through college. After working security for a couple of years I went on to have a 36 year law enforcement career. After retiring from law enforcement I worked another year as an armed security officer before moving to Florida. I also moonlighted for years working security during my law enforcement career. My point is I have taken my share of security and law enforcement training classes. I know a good one after sitting through a class. I just completed the 28 hour “G” training at The Right Training. The instructor, Mac, is an amazing guy. He is very tall and intimidating but there is no doubt about it, he has the students best interest at heart. Mac spends a lot of time sharing his prior law enforcement experience and 15 year experience running his academy. Mac’s stories are a benefit to the class as some are entertaining and all are educational. Mac does a great job covering the book work needed to take the required test at the end of the class. Mac’s real strength is at the range where it’s all about being safe and doing everything in his power to get you to shoot a qualifying score. I was impressed, because there is not a lot of time at the range, as he quickly assessed the student’s shooting abilities and made suggestions to help the students shoot qualifying scores. I highly recommend Mac’s academy at The Right Training and the “G” course. If I had it to do over again I would take the Pre-“G” course as well as it would have helped knock the rust off and I would have benefitted from Mac’s excellent training earlier. I have to shout out to Sue also as she keeps the administrative things run smooth! I will add that I have since taken the D training from Mac. The course appears to be something that can be very boring since it is a very basic course. Once again I thought Mac’s insight and experience were invaluable. He talks about things I’m sure the students will encounter on the job that can only be talked about by someone with his kind of background and experience. Mac kept the course very interesting to me because he shared his vast experience. Thanks again Mac for what you do! You are truly an assest to the security profession and it was my experience that you indeed speak the truth!

Mac is an amazing instructor and teaches the class very thoroughly. More important, I was never bored. I come from the military so I can identify dedication and Mac certainly is dedicated in helping people become successful security officers. I would recommend taking his class even if you’re not certain about making security a career. Take his class, pay attention and when you graduate YOU WILL know more about something you never knew about and it will be helpful, I guarantee it.

I took the “D” & “G” course. Instructor has the highest integrity. You get the required training along with scenario-type information based on real-world experience. I would highly recommend.

Was looking to get my d and g certification and picked the right training and I can honestly say the name fits! Between Mac as the instructor and Sue in the office they are a power combo. Sue was very nice and made the signing up process extremely easy and fast, Mac made the class enjoyable and I feel I learned more from him then I ever would have expected! Definitely a student for life! If you're wondering where to go for your training look no further! Mac and sue have the best academy around in my opinion.
