"If it was not for your courses, I would have not been promoted to Warrant, and LDO. You are the best. Thank you for being there for my career... You and your classes are AWESOME!!"

LT John Harrison, USN Hey Ed.

"I took your class in 2016, retired now, 8 months later, and I am the top candidate for a $55,000 job with a prison near me. They said the reason I was the top candidate was the certifications I earned in your class."

SFC Sharon Murillo, U. S. Army

"Ed, your symposium was superb, I attended in 2009 and again in 2016. The knowledge and certifications are the keystone to my business start-up. The small amount spent from my GI bill doesn't even come close to the value of your program. I also received additional knowledge from the personal & professional experience you shared with me outside the classroom. Priceless!!!"

Colonel Rock Henry, U. S. Army

"In 2016, 50% of the Culinary Specialists who made E-7 had been in my class. In FY16 and FY17, 34% of those who made E-7—E-9 had been in my class. CWO3 Mike Carter, formerly 7 years at the White House and now an instructor at Navy Supply School, just told me that he sat on 5 or 6 promotions boards, and certifications absolutely do help."

Navy E-7, E-8 and E-9 Promotions

"I am a past Navy E-8 Selection Board MBR. I can't stress enough the importance of certifications highlighted in a candidates package. We looked at certifications as an enhancer to the candidates record. "YES" it breaks you out from your peers! The Military Sealift Command has not stopped contacting me since I provided them with copies of my certifications. I was also hired on the spot by MWR as a Food and Beverage Night Manager."

CSCM Rory Bacon, USN

"I am the Executive Chef/Cafe Supervisor at Kaiser Hospital in Hawaii. I really believe because of my certifications and other qualifications I obtained I was able to get this job. They were impressed with my resume and my certifications. CS1 Villanueva also retired and landed a job at Zippy's as a Corporate Chef. So you can share your stories with the success of former clients who retired and landed Manager/Executive positions."


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
