Why We're Different

 Because we aren't only skilled tacticians, we're skilled teachers with the ability to build a curriculum that is realistic, relevant and based on actual threats faced by everyday citizens.  Plus, we relate that information to adult learners in a manner that facilitates skill acquisition, memory consolidation and recall!  Not only do our senior executives and hand selected contractors possess the skills and abilities that come from having spent their entire adult lives in positions relevant to your needs, they have also studied under some of the greatest human performance experts and reality based pioneers in the business.  At Highlander Defense, you won't be bogged down by "war stories" and "because I said so" mentalities. You'll learn in a respectful, professional and client-centered environment where your growth is our focus.
