"Dave provided me with my first exposure in training subject control tactics. His knowledge and personality created a comfortable atmosphere to learn in without losing sight of the serious business that the training addresses. Working and training with Dave assisted me in reaching my ultimate goal of becoming a police officer and he still stands at the fore as one of the best tactics instructors I have trained with."

"Not only did I gain security certification but most importantly I gained the confidence and knowledge within myself. I do not have a moment on the job where I feel unable to perform to my best ability. Hearing the stories of Dave’s successful career, made me realize what I can and want to achieve. From learning the basics to taking in-depth courses has allowed me to succeed in my career today, from being promoted to supervisor to securing a position as a peace officer. Having the knowledge, skills and confidence has allowed me to perform each career to my full potential.
Dave’s friendly, approachable attitude allows for the best training one can ask for. His understanding of all aspects of security training gives each individual a unique way to grasp all information being presented. After partaking in a course delivered by Tip of Spear I know I can use each skill to my advantage to increase personal and career growth within my future. "

"My first experience in the PPCT course was eleven years ago with you (Dave). I wanted to extend my gratitude for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your PPCT class. After the course, I felt confident in my abilities in utilizing the Use of Force Model. I would say, the part I enjoyed the most, was the handcuffing portion, you showed patience in your teachings; you gave me ample time to fully understand in performing the task. I thank you for accepting me as your student and giving me the great pleasure of having you as my instructor throughout the eleven years of being in the Security Industry"
