Wow, we are only one month into 2012 and it already seems as though the PFC engine has been kicked into overdrive.  Despite our robust schedule of training courses, new projects and classes continue to populate the calendar.  And every time we tell ourselves that PFC can’t possibly get any busier, well, it seems that we can.  We attribute our break-neck pace to the positive experiences of our students which in turn fuels the demand for even more courses in more places.  This is the kind of thing that is best explained by the phrase “a win-win”!

Our February newsletter brings more news and information direct from PFC HQ.  In this edition we have an excellent article from PFC Director Steve Krystek where he breaks down the ins and outs of flashlight use for personal protection. There is a TON of great information in this article, be sure to check it out. We also have some great feedback from the very first TIDE class which just wrapped up in New York at the headquarters of  You can check that out below as well as our latest instructor profile; this one featuring Sean Hendrickson.  Enjoy!
