Elite training for mission-critical professions

“During 17 years with my department’s SWAT team, I’ve had the opportunity to train with some amazing individuals. From the newest operation to the most senior team leader, everyone was able to benefit from their tremendous experience. I speak for the team when I say, we cannot wait to have them back to push us even harder.”

-MIKE R., SWAT Commander, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Dept.

“If you’re looking to turn your Department into an elite team there isn’t a better model than the SEALs. You can’t adopt all of their training and principles, but APS can show you how to adapt them to fit your Department.”

– Bill H., Division Chief – Operations, Chico Fire Rescue
