"Thank you for the perfectly practical knowledge provided by the course. Due to very practice-related information chosen for study, material does not remain just "academical" and so very helpful in daily practical tasks. Besides, this is one of the few courses that gave a glance at the differences in police and military tactics and approach. Special thanks for flexible approach and understanding of the circumstances and needs of the students. Great work!"
