DOD Accredited

Many of our courses and instructors are approved by the US Department of Defense. 


No one can know what dangers lurk around the corner; a surprise, a mugging, an explosion, a shooter on a rampage or even a terrorist attack. But as an individual, you can learn how to avoid these situations and how to respond should you find yourself confronted by the unexpected. Black Tree’s elite cadre of former military and law enforcement instructors offers courses in enhanced situational awareness that will prepare you if the worst presents itself.
