Phil was hired by Heckler & Koch, Inc. in November, 1986 as their director of training. Tasked with developing, from ground zero, a training division responsible for both firearms and tactical training to national and international Police "special operations teams".
The MP5 classes he designed during that 7-year tenure were quoted as being some of the most intense and realistic classes then offered.
40 years of instructional/operational experience with MP5 & M16
30 years of non-stop MP5/Colt instructing since joining H&K in Nov. 1986
40 years of Shoot House operator/instructor experience since 1977
In 1993, Phil resigned to pursue greater personal challenges with his own training company. With over 20 years of experience, his programs are being quoted as some of the most in-depth, up-to-date, and best-value-for-the-money classes available to law enforcement. (Incidentally, there is no 3-year restriction on recertification, however I do recommend you retake only the ranges segment of the Instructor program if you have not used the H&K/Colt for 3 or more years).
Phil enlisted in the British Army at 15 years of age in April, 1969. He saw active service in both the "16th Parachute Brigade" and as a Trooper in the "22nd Special Air Service Regiment". (22 S.A.S.)
