What LEOs are saying about SERAPH Law Enforcement Training;

 

“I felt there were a large number of tools given to us by the instructor which could be used to make interviews and interrogations a lot more effective. I am looking forward to Mr. Yeager’s two day course.”

“Mr. Dale Yeager is a superb instructor and has a high knowledge of the subject. His mannerism in speaking to the audience was excellent and he incorporated humor into this lesson plan which made the class even much more interesting. He answered every question fully and in detail, making sure every person in the room understood. Mr. Yeager spoke to the class members on a personal level which made me and my fellow officer comfortable. I would highly recommend this course to everyone.”

“The class was laid out perfectly and was very interesting. Mr. Yeager was very energetic which made the class fun and knew the topic in and out. Great class and I would love to take another class with him shortly.”

“All of my training classes have been hands on and tactical. I rarely attend a class that is like this one. I have to say this was one of the best training I have ever gotten in my 24 yrs on the job. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT JOB!”

“Dale was an encyclopedia of law enforcement anecdotes. He is very knowledgeable and a great communicator.”

“The course was very well put together. The different topics brought a different view and understanding of how people think and influence their actions. We come in contact with many people in our career that having a broad understanding of people’s ideologies and cultures could help us understand them a little better. “
