“My name is Dallas Walden, I am a US Navy veteran, current business owner and work in private security on the side. I had been looking online and in my networks for the right type of high risk threat security training that would fit the jobs I have been asked to do. Most of what I found was the weekend warrior pistol and carbine classes, which are great and necessary but I knew I would need something more and in greater depth of training outside of just how to use my weapons at a range. I would need to be able to react to a large variety of threats and with varying levels of force. I had been looking for several weeks when I finally came to Predator Security Defence with Dan Anderson. As I read what they were about from their webpage and looked at the pictures and videos, I knew this was what I was looking for. Side note; the other thing that I noticed, that drew me to them more than any other program, was that I could find very little about them online outside of their website and YouTube…that made it more desirable to me as I know what it takes to keep a business going and it appears that PSD is all word of mouth. A sign of true quality.
I will not go into a day by account of the training, as that is for you to find out for yourself. What I will say is; Predator Security Defence does what they advertise and accomplish what they say they will.
PSD is submersive into the life of a security agent in a HRT environment from the very beginning. The instructors are very good at what they do and are very good teachers to each of the students in the class. This was not a general roll call and we all do the drills and call it a day. You get one on one attention, like it or not, from each of the instructors as if they are there to help only you. I admired that about the instructors. The training was fast paced and you shoot a lot, pistols and carbines, it was the best part. By the end of the week, I felt like shooting was a part of my everyday movement. And it is that type of submersive environment, with quality instructors who care about the overall purpose and nature of their job, and care about each of their students, that makes PSD what it is, and that is the best.
When I left training, I had more tools at my disposal than I ever thought possible to attain in just 6 days. I was taught and drilled until I was proficient in them and most importantly I left PSD knowing that I am prepared to handle a variety of differing threats with varying levels of force. That confidence going into a situation makes all the difference in the world. Thank you Dan, Rich, and the team at PSD.
You won’t know the full extent of the meaning of this review until you take the course, that’s the way it is meant to be. I would and have highly recommended to my friends and family and those I work with to take the PSD PSS course and any others they offer. I’m looking forward to my course…have been since I left last October!
Follow up; a couple weeks after the PSD course I was called to do a job near the border of Mexico. I put to use much of the training, both prep and planning and weapon knowledge to use. It not only helped me in the job but the clients knew they were in good hands because I was able to help them be prepared as well. That made for a very smooth and successful operation. Thanks again PSD.”
