Below is a listing of my credentials.  Naturally, I will update this page as I acquire more credentials, especially those that enable me to teach more courses.  I have had many additional safety, security, and firearms instruction certifications and credentials in the past that are either too distant in time to list, expired, or not really applicable to my current course offerings.
