Students say ...
Having spent eleven years in post-secondary education, receiving a B.S.,J.D., and M.Div it is fair to say that I have spent thousands of hours in the classroom. I have found that a professor/instructor can not fake two things - actual working knowledge/experience in a given subject , and a passion for a subject. Bob displayed both of these qualities. It was immediately apparent that Bob knew what he was talking about, explained through real life examples-

I have taken many training courses during my career but this one ranks at the very top. Not only was the material excellent ( it was presented to our level not by some yahoo brainiak trying to jam useless info to us ) !!! But Bob made the presentation interesting. You could feel his passion for what he was teaching...it had meaning. I recommend this course to every officer.

Robert Jordan, Lynn MA. Fire Department
Bob did an outstanding job of incorporating comments made both during the classroom sessions and during the breaks in to the class lecture. The media was solid. It was to the point and also on point. Excellent presentation style with a delivery approach that brought you into real-life situations in your own department.

Bob is a professional and, although a retired Firefighter, he still has a real passion for the Job that is very evident. He has a genuine concern for the safety of FF's and really wants those who participate in the ISO program to be successful in their duties in keeping FF's safe. He kept my attention in class and I definitely will recommend this course to others. Great Job Bob !!! Keep up the Good Work !!!
