Special Events, Workshop Presentations, Instructor-Led Education

Instructor-Led Events:

One of my most popular courses is called Search Operations.  It addresses all of the critical search skills needed in the first 12 hours of a response.  The best part is that it is also highly customizable.

I’ve delivered everything from an 8 hour training featuring just part of the course all the way up to the full 40 hour delivery.

Since I created it to represent the best practices of several federal courses (that I also teach), I can format the delivery how you need it, not how some federal curriculum writer needs it!
