Eye Opening

William Siefers

This was an eye opener for me, especially for carrying a gun at church. I have learned we have a long way to go with regards to our safety procedures.

The course was well laid out, easy to follow, and contained valuable information for the layperson to use. It did a very good job of stressing that various jurisdictions will have differing laws, therefore, it is up to the personnel to insure that their actions are compliant with state and local laws.

Was having problems with the internet which allowed me to pass the course as there must have been a lot of material that I didn't get to see but having a background in this subject I scraped through. Your color codes are different then I am use to and some of your verbiage was different. But based on what I got to see and the examination I feel that is a well written course.

This course was very clear, informative, and easy to follow. It does a good job of getting your mind wrapped around the legal aspects of use of force without being overbearing. I will be using Sheepdog Church Security for years to come.

There are many intricacies of Use of Force and how, when, where, and with what to use various means of force. This is a good overview to get safety teams to understand how very important their duties are and how they must be performed within lawful guidelines. Scenarios offered during lessons and in the final wrap up were helpful to learn.

Really good review on the use of force. Nothing will get you into trouble than not understanding the use of force.

A straight forward review of the laws, even though they may be different in different states, the basics are still the same.

Good general training that will provoke thought and understanding about the role of a Church "SAFETY" Team. Content is very adaptable and easy to use. For the on-line course, the audio is sometimes of low quality and garbled.

The course presents the law, term definitions, and germane scenarios. Successfully completing the course provides a confident understanding of 'Use of Force.' The course includes sufficient support information to give the student reason to strongly consider the risks and legal impact that could arise from inappropriate use of force. The presentation is slow and at a High School level.
