Security Guard Training

I was looking for an instructor who teaches Level 1, 2, and 3 Security Guard classes, and David Brown came highly recommended from a friend who is retired law enforcement. The classes were offered regularly which accommodated my busy schedule. What impressed me most was not only his extensive law enforcement, military, and martial arts background, but his passion for teaching, professionalism, candor, and high standards. David has a pragmatic, straightforward approach that keeps you alert and ready. After completing the Security Training classes, I came away feeling accomplished knowing that I was better equipped to go home alive and well at the end of the day. With David's classes you get it all; personal defense, verbal diplomacy, legal use of force, marksmanship, legal review, the list is extensive. So whether you want to get certified as a security guard, get your Concealed Carry license, take personal defense or martial arts classes, David Brown and Triad Defense is the place to go. Your time, effort, and money will be well invested. I have no doubt that you will come away from his classes with a survivor's mindset and an improved ability to think clearly, act decisively, and react swiftly and judiciously if you are ever in a situation where your life is in danger.>

I attended and passed Triad Defense’s New Mexico Concealed Carry Course (CCW) October, 2017. Mr. Brown is far and above the finest instructor, presenter and shooting range master that any person who desires a premier curriculum could wish. Beyond the prescribed State Mandates, Mr. Brown emphasizes the critical areas which occur prior and most importantly after a defensive shooting. Decades of military, law enforcement and martial arts has honed Mr. Brown’s realist approach to the most salient points required for an individual to be armed 24/7 and learn to be completely responsible for the mindset and actions this undertaking requires.

You may ask my qualifications to submit such a recommendation. I have trained traditional Okinawan Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu Karate and other martial arts for 45 years. I continue to train daily and teach daily. The defensive and offensive tactics are well honed over these past years and this knowledge translates into knowing who is real and who is not. Sifu Brown is the real deal, period. So, do you want mediocre or the best?

Mr Brown,

I want to thank you for the training you conducted this past weekend for Transit Enforcement. Our Director Mr Rizzieri pulled me a side this morning and asked how it went. I told him that I learned more in (1) 20 hr block of training this past weekend than i had in the previous 20 yrs put together. Unfortunate, but true. I also spoke with our Union President, Tomas Romero last night. He was super excited to hear about our experience and asked for your information. He said their Dept is searching for a trainer and he will pushing their Director to use you to train City Security... Have a blessed day!!
I have recently relocated to Albuquerque, NM and was very determined to work as an armed security guard. I found David Brown and Triad Defense while looking for certified instructors. Mr. Brown spoke with me personally over the phone and gave me a great deal of information and explained the process and requirements needed to obtain my Armed Security Guard license. Mr. Brown was very flexible working with me to obtain the training ASAP and financially as well. I completed Level 1,2 and 3 required trainings within a week’s time frame and completed the concealed carry training requirement for the state as well! Mr. Brown has amazing experience background in the law enforcement, military and security fields and very knowledgeable. He explained the materiel very clearly and stressed the importance of it as well. Mr. Brown is also very resourceful when it came to helping me find work with my new security license and is well connected in the law enforcement/ security fields. Mr. Brown and the Triad Defense offer more programs such as self defense classes, tactical shooting and more. I will definitely be coming back for more training to further advance myself.

"I recently had the pleasure of meeting and training with Dave and his staff and I walked away with sense of enlightenment due to the years of experience and knowledge that these guys brought to the training. Dave and his staff were very knowledgeable in the laws and and rules pertaining to my specific field of work. I had a great training on the range as well, the staff was intense and informative on the range as well. They made sure that you understood the importance of handling and discharging your firearm correctly. I left the training with a sense of renewed knowledge when it comes to my job and I am an officer now. Thanks David and Triad defense."

"A good friend of mine who is a retired Navy Seal referred me to Mr. Brown for firearms training. I am most grateful he did. I was blessed with the opportunity to attend one of Mr. Brown's courses and I learned a great deal about safety in working with firearms, how and when to use one, and the importance of developing good habits in using a firearm. I hold Mr. Brown in the highest regards for the care and effort he put into making sure we learned the course requirements and beyond. I highly recommend Mr. Brown to anyone interested in obtaining firearms training. He possesses the experience and unique qualities to undertake the responsibility in training others on the various aspects concerning firearms!"

"Superior instruction in a highly professional environment. As a retired Marine and former Marine Corps Classroom Instructor (EWTGLANT Little Creek), I didn't know what to expect from the Level 2 Course I attended. I was very impressed. Great facilities and a small class, which allowed for a lot of one-on-one instruction for students of a highly varied background. Equipment is top notch, and the Assistant Instructors brought their "A" Game. The final practical was conducted in an environment that was highly realistic and drove home the key elements of the previous days' instruction. I will be back for further training".

I heartily recommend Mr. Brown's training for anyone remotely considering starting in the security field. Mr. Brown presented a very engaging, interesting and evenly paced class that kept everyone on their toes throughout. He kept all students involved and does not accept a 'sit back and relax' approach from anyone in the class. This was great and I personally learned a tremendous amount from attending. Especially enjoyed the role plays and Mr. Brown's descriptions of scenarios to help put abstract ideas into context. My money was very, very well spent for what I will be able to apply in the field.

Ultimately, it is the people like Mr. Brown who have dedicated their lives to serving and care passionately about their professions, who are creating the new reality, expectations and standards of professionalism for nextgen security personnel everywhere.

I recently had attended the Level 1 Security Guard Certification class. As someone who's made it a career, both in the military and as a civilian, I'm impressed.

This is not just a cut and dry class that caters to a test. It's engaging and gets you thinking. David actively brings his experiences as examples while using real world scenarios to help students see just how much this industry has evolved and that the expectations of what a security officer is expected to know and do is higher than ever.

You want the best training you can get. It's right here.

-Burton Rominger
I recently took one of Mr brown's level 1 guard card classes. It was really fun and enjoyable. I was really impressed how fluent and smooth the lecture went and how he was able to touch on all bases of the job and other industries that coincide with each other, so that the students have a better understanding how all this applies in the world today. I personally enjoyed how MR Brown was able to answer side question with great depth and still continue the lecture on time.

-Joey Fordonski
Mr. David Brown is a top notch trainer, he is the best of the best. I have had police training, that I got nothing out of. I am very glad I took training from David.

-Tony Rael
I recently attended the Level 2 Security Officer Certification class taught by David Brown, Special Projects Manager of Triad Defense, and I am truly impressed.

The class encompasses all of the elements necessary for a Security professional to expand both their knowledge and proficiency in their field. Beyond just the legal and technical aspects of carrying out the duties of Level 2, the course also provides the operator with the philosophy and principles that make the difference between “just doing the job” and knowing how to be a professional in the Security Industry.

The physical training: unarmed, handcuffing and baton use were excellent and provided me, as a student with both the ability and the confidence to successfully control any situation that might arise as a Security Officer. I highly recommend to anyone in the Security field, either just starting or a Level 1 Officer looking to grow in the industry, TAKE THIS COURSE!

-Bryan Carter
Dear Mr. Brown;

I would like to thank you and your fine staff at Triad Defense for providing such a high level of training to the security officers of our company. Your professional standards go far above and beyond the standard “norm” currently available or minimum standards required. Our officers are better prepared than ever to handle the “real life” situations and provide the highest professional service our clients expect. I offer my highest recommendation to my colleagues, peers, subordinates and individuals of security professionals in referring them to you and your staff at Triad Defense for truly exceptional training. Let me also offer my deepest appreciation for all your hard work and dedication to the security industry.

Respectfully,
Inspector Troy Dunn

My name is Jaime Rodriguez, S/O at a high volume of traffic and frustration state building in Albuquerque N.M. My job relies 85% or more to be able to think and react on a split moment. Days after I underwent training, I was assaulted by a male twice my size and my reaction was textbook to how Instructor Brown trained me to do. Thanks to his training no one was seriously hurt. I recently underwent training for level 2 [Security Guard certification] and can't wait for Level 3 training!! Best experience ever!!! I would highly recommend Instructor David Brown and all his awesome staff at Triad Defense.
