Dear Members,

Today I am very proud to introduce the mutual cooperation with the International Defense Tactics College (IDTC) and IMAF-Europe.
Beside our own activities within our Protection and Security Division this cooperation gives us the opportunity of networking on professional international level, exchanging knowledge, access to a train-the-trainers program and at least to apply as a candidate/student for the college and training module based education.The IDTC based in Fort Myers, Florida is an educational institution providing academic and hands-on training for careers as professional defense tactics trainers with a curriculum strictly designed for the purpose of education, certification and providing meaningful teaching credentials for our graduates to teach their craft.
