    Question ACT235 Schools in Western PA?

    In my search for a new job, I was contemplating maybe getting my ACT235.
    Does anyone have a recommendation on schools in western PA?

    Ive done a search and there are a few schools in/around the Pittsburgh area, but I know nothing about them and if they're worth my time and money.
    I appreciate the help!

    Ricochet,
    A few years back I looked at some ACT 235 schools in the S/W PA area. I am a former LEO and US Army Officer and I just wanted to add the 235 Certification to my resume. Two of my good friends are ACT 235 certified in this area - neither of the two schools that they got their certification from impressed me. Can't even remember the names of the schools now...

    The school/organization that kind of caught my attention is up the road in McKean PA
    http://lethalweaponstraining.com/events/pa-act235/

    I know its a drive, but I liked the instructor's training credentials (i.e. places he has trained at).
    Tomorrow's battle is won during today's practice.

    I did Advanced Security & Law Enforcement Training (ASLET) and thought the instructor Garret Kimmell was decent - paact235.com The classes are in Irwin, so it's partly down your way. I've had the pleasure of being pepper sprayed AND tazed in Garret's classes.

    I've only done a few private jobs, but I'll be working Thanksgiving evening and Friday morning at the Cranberry Twp. Walmart, protecting against the marauding hordes, ha ha. That one detail will pay more than what I paid for Act 235 certification.

    Whoever publishes a list like that with phone numbers instead of Web links should be beaten with a wet noodle.
