Student Accolade:
The two on-line interdiction courses (Evading Honesty® and Smugglers, Inc.®) I took over the weekend literally already paid for themselves....the VERY NEXT SHIFT I worked! Everyone is asking what I picked up on and I'm referring them to your website and the two courses. I'm not sure if you guys want the feedback or not but I just thought you should know how effective the courses are! Thank You!
