Brian M. - Brick Mason

Now that I have attended this course knowing what I have just learned there is no amount of money you could pay someone to give you the confidence, skills and knowledge this course gives you.  The last module I must admit was a real eye opener and something I would have never experienced unless I attended a course like this.  Joe says "train like you're going to fight" during the entire course.  I can tell you I now know what that means. 

Stephen C. - Cardiologist

We live in a dangerous world.   Those who are better prepared to mentally deal with high stress situations and apply the proper tactics to each situation have a much better chance of surviving the event.  Prior to coming to this course I thought I was well armed with the knowledge and skills that I needed to protect myself and my family.  I could not have been more wrong.  Joe has taken a tremendous amount of knowledge and training and compressed it into a 3 day course that certainly changed my life and how I look at things.  I have a new found sense of confidence that I never knew existed.  Many thanks Joe!

Craig W. - Chef 

I have attended several courses in the past on various subjects such as pistol shooting, carbine shooting, survival, etc. taught by former SF guys, Rangers and SEALs.  Although they were good schools and taught me some good skills, none of them came close to what I learned here in 3 days.  Joe is a passionate teacher and obviously loves what he does.   Passion is contagious and makes for an excellent learning experience.  His level of training and experience is far beyond what I even thought special operations guys were taught.   This course far exceeded my expectations in several ways.   Well done!

David M. - Information Technology

There is power in knowledge.  To have the desire to be prepared and the tools you can buy from a store is one thing.  But to have the knowledge and practice to actually be successful is totally different.   This course taught me how to truly avoid trouble and protect my family.

Josh W. - Anesthesiologist

I am a new father and my baby is 3 weeks old.  I have a responsibility to protect my family in any way I can.  I came to this course to learn any new "tool" I could add to my "tactical toolbox".  This course has broadened me in a way that my tactical tool box has become a garage with new and more shelves.  The content of the course greatly exceeded my expectations. 

Joseph N. - Cabinet Maker/Pastor

I came to the course because I trusted Joe to train my wife and I without regard to our lack of knowledge or our current abilities.  This course exceeded my expectations with every element promised.  I am forever grateful to Joseph for what he has given my wife and I.

Josh H. - Electrician/US Military Veteran

I wanted to expand my tactical tool box so I can protect my loved ones.  I understand the value of learning from someone like Joe who has been through everything he teaches.  You can't go anywhere else to learn some of the invaluable skills that you learn from this course.

Darin H. - Mechanic

I attended WETC to further the life saving skills I already possess.   I was not expecting the mental challenge of looking at myself in the reflection of reality as both a leader in business, and most importantly at home.  Was a huge eye opener

Dennis E. - Construction

The knowledge and experience Joe brings to this course is staggering.   How one person could possibly know so much about so many different subject matter is beyond my comprehension.   He has forgotten more about this stuff than the average person could acquire in 5 life times.  He is one of the most inspiring instructors I have ever worked with.

Jean M. - Physician Assistant

This course has prepared me to protect myself in today's political/social environment.  Looking forward to more courses in the future!

Rion C. - Investment Banker/Harvard Graduate

There are many courses out there teaching shooting and other life saving skills, but none that covers such a diverse range of subject matter in 3 days.  Joe's service in our nation's top special operations units has provided him a wealth of knowledge and experience far outside the norm.  To be able to be trained by an individual like Joe has invaluable benefits.  He has "been there and done that" and brings those experiences to the course to drive teaching points home to the students.

Frank G. - Commercial Fisherman

WETC taught me new skills, but most importantly how to avoid violent conflict situations.  Forever grateful for taking this course.
