        ATAB / CAS - good bunch of guys and the training materials you receive are more than worth the overall investment. Almost all of their training was designed for first responders. Matter of fact the last 4 or 5 modules were completed by a committee (sp?) that I was on. Good bunch of guys and some great info.

        I started with them several years back - and redid just about everyone of their PPT slides after reviewing each and every one of them.

            Good Question

            GOD honest truth - I do not remember. Someone in my network of well over 30,000 folks had to have introduced me. I just am not sure. I did check into them and checked on personnel claiming to be SF that were there - things were legit. It has been a couple of years now - and I know they at least tripled in size relatively quickly with my network - once I had them vetted.

                  The CAS / CMAS Certification offered by the ATAB are great.

                  The CAS / CMAS Certification offered by the ATAB are great. The training material alone is well worth the money.

                    For the "typical" domestic security organization that isn't running special ops, high-risk global EP etc., the CAS certification runs just a tad deep in the weeds, IMO.

                    For such organizations, I think the AntiTerror Officer certification course from S2 Institute is more appropriate:

                    Visit http://www.s2institute.com/content/_...atoprogram.php - where you can see the course outline and read many references from former students from security, the military, federal government etc. FWIW, CIS - the company that founded and runs S2I - is a prominent player in the field of critical infrastructure security and trains their own officers through this program.

                    Caveat: The course information indicates that this course runs 18 to 20 hours, but even with my prior background I was pressed to master the amount of material presented by Craig Gundry in 30 hours. He's very expert and, like many people who know a lot about their subject, he moves along at a pretty good pace, so allow some extra time to pause and absorb the lectures and related materials before moving on. Don't just rush through it. (And Craig, if you happen to read this, you might reconsider those time estimates! )

                      In the early 90's I attended a two day course in terrorism with the Executive Protection Institue and then attended Execurtive Security International's E.P. course. Congrats on your current achievement.
