Still cannot adequately convey the value in taking this training. I suggest anyone interested find a way to come up with the tuition.

Also, it may do those intending to take the class some good to have this bit of preparatory advice: come to the CCJA ready to work. This is no cupcake class (apologies to forum member "Cupcake" affront intended), and you WILL be stretched to the limits in the classroom and with outside assignments and especially in the field.

I have never seen the world the same way after taking this class. Developing the combat mindset isn't always a natural process, and this class FORCES the inception of building those skills.

Go for it, and be prepared to push yourself.

Thanks for letting me put my $.02 in, Tom!
