As a lifelong student I've always felt it was important to have a glance into an Instructor's background in order to provide a better understanding of their perspective on the subject at hand. Why does an Instructor's background matter, relevancy. Why doesn't an instructor's background matter, it's worthless if they can't effectively transmit the message to others.
That said, allow me to take a moment to introduce myself as it pertains to the services provided by LHGK... I'm Rob, Primary Instructor for all LHGK labeled courses. Educationally, I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Studies, have completed CSAT's Tactical Pistol / Rifle Instructor Course, Surefire Institute's Low Light Instructor Course, and am certified by the NRA as a Pistol Instructor. While I've been around firearms my entire life, I didn't take the "education" part seriously until 2008, since that time I have amassed 1000+ hours of firearms and defensive course work from a variety of Instructors, some of which include Larry Vickers, Pat McNamara, Paul Howe - CSAT, Dave Harrington, Craig Douglas, Shawn Claussen, Clark International, and Dr. William Aprill.
As far as my firearms and medical related backgrounds, they include 22+ years of military service in Combat Arms and Service/Support Units primarily as a Medic, 15+ years of service as a Career Firefighter / Paramedic (NREMTP) / Tactical Medic and both Military and Civilian firearms competition experience.
LHGK's goal is to help others build safe, simple and effective Firearm and Medical related skill sets via our curriculum. All LHGK Courses follow the philosophy of "Master the basics, perform at advanced levels" and are rooted in the "Fundamentals".
A detailed resume and references are available on request, both will confirm a lifelong mission of helping others.
