I just wanted to thank my friend, Gregory Bravo, for his training, knowledge and expertise. I met with a VP at Titan Global, LLC. about some part-time work, and the gentleman was blown away by my credentials and the quality of the training that I was afforded by Alliance Group Affiliates. I want to thank Greg for recommending that I apply for the TWIC card and Fireguard certificate. These two credentials really helped to set me apart from other candidates, as well as the Executive Protection credential. The VP was trying to convince me to take a full time position. It is obviousthat in the security community, Alliance Group Affiliates is held in very high regard. Thanks again, and I will see you soon to further my training.

As a retired NYPD officer with over 20 years experience I have received training from experts in various fields in law enforcement. Upon taking the eight hour training course for security guard under AG Affiliates I was extremely impressed and grateful for my instructor Mr. Gregory Bravo. While his resume speaks for itself I found the training he provided to be as informative and as professional as any I've ever received.
The training Mr Bravo provides is vast and thorough. While he covered all that is necessary to be prepared for the exam he goes above and beyond by providing the trainee with invaluable tools for security. The tactics both physical and verbal are top notch and will make you better in security work. He takes all questions and explains thoroughly. I also found his class to be interesting as well as informative.
In summary I would highly recommend taking the course with Mr. Bravo. You will get the training you need plus indispensable knowledge.
I wanted to write you a letter of thanks for all you have taught me during my 8 and 16 hour security guard course and for the job placement help since graduating. You are truly a man of your word. Your course was priced well below other schools and I know that the knowledge that I gained during my training has served me well. Since graduating I have worked steadily not only in general security and loss prevention but also in executive protection. I have been paid up to $20 per hour, which far exceeded my expectations.
I know from speaking with unsatisfied guards who trained at other schools that I made the right choice. Being able to say that I was trained by a former U.S. Marshal has been a huge advantage for me whenever I go on an interview. The support, advice, and encouragement you have given me has been fantastic. By following my training I have already had instances where I impressed my supervisors with my knowledge of security tactics and by carrying all of the tactical gear you suggested.

I am sending you this short letter to thank you for the excellent training course you provided to me to start my 2nd career as a security officer. This month i attended your 8 hour basic course to obtain my security guard license.
The first thing that went thru my mind was how was I going to sit for 8 hours of complete boardem, that I would never make it thru the day.. To my surprise the class was everything but boring. The information and knowledge that you provided to the class, from your years as a law enforcement officer was priceless You taught us what we can and can't do by law as security officers, what to be on the lookout for when on patrol, and how to protect ourselves in certain situations and administering help to others in emergency situations As a public safety officer I will be needing all this information at some time in my career
There are several classes that are available for students to take from different company's, but just reading about your credentials I knew that yours was the course to apply for. As required by law for my license I need to complete 16 more hours of training which your school offers, I am looking forward to completeing this with you.
Again thank you for a great class

I wanted to thank you for teaching an excellent course! It was very informative and never boring. I'm 100% glad I made the decision to make the trip down to your school.
I would like to add that I was impressed by your humility given your elite qualifications. An excellent role model for proper conduct.
Dear Mr. Bravo,
I'd like to once again thank you very much for waiving the class charge for the 8-hour annual. It's nice to know there are veterans, like yourself, who are willing to help other veterans. Your kindness couldn't have come at a better time. I'm currently unemployed, and sixty dollars right know is more like six hundred dollars to me. I thought the class was very informative. Also, the way you presented the information made the class interesting.
Dear Mr. Bravo, first I would like to say thank you for all of the training you have given me between the 8 and 16 hour courses. You have given me alot of information that will undoubtably help me, not only in security, but in every day activities and while on duty as a fireman. I am grateful for everything you've given me and can't wait to continue my training with you and your company . . . Thank you again for all of your help . . . .
As a medically separated veteran I have to say I cannot be happier with the instruction I received from Alliance Group Affiliates and Mr. Greg Bravo. After leaving the military I needed to find a new career path and I had my eyes set on security and executive protection. I did my research and was not very pleased with the talent leading some of these courses. In fact I found some instructors and companies to have no prior experience in the industry and related it more to a scam then anything I could actually benefit from.
When I called Mr. Gregg Bravo at AG Affiliates he impressed with the great talent and expertise he and his staff had on their resumes. I was happy to hear that they were all either Special Forces, FBI, Secret Service, or Federal Marshals. Mr. Greg Bravo and most of his staff are military veterans and are anxious to help out other military veterans, they have a real “brothers help brothers” attitude. Greg informed me that military veterans get special deals and I was one of these candidates. I received my NY security class completely free. This was astonishing most schools wanted around a $120 dollars for the same course. I also attended the 16 hour OJT training course and was very pleased with the attention to detail. So pleased in fact that I have enrolled in the executive protection program at AG affiliates and have continual training there every week.
Mr Bravo thanks again to you and your staff for helping veterans find their way. You are not only providing a great service but are also doing a very noble thing for veterans and I cannot thank you enough.
Some comments from our 16 Hour OJT Class of November 10, 2013 . . .
Retired NYC police officer, US Army Vietnam veteran, I attended 8 & 16 Hour Security Courses. Mr. Gregory Bravo, Director and lecturer has assisted me personally, was superbly knowledgeable of subject matter and is a well qualified person in all phases of law enforcement field field.

The instructor was very knowledgeable on security training subjects. I am looking forward to take more courses with them. I feel learning and training with AG Affiliates will help me with my career path. They have a lot of courses to take and extra knowledge to help you and teach you. Definitely a school I would recommend to people, friends, and family. I love that they help you find a job also.
The 8 and 16 hour courses pertaining to getting a security guard license was very knowledgeable to me. Gregory Bravo is a very knowledgeable and well trained person in his field. Through his words and these courses I have learned a lot of new knowledge that will help me in my future job as well as my daily life. All of these subjects I have heard from these courses were necessary and things that I will remember in the future. The only recommendation I do have is for Gregory Bravo to keep it up and always use experiences because through experiences and stories is how we all learn well.
Found class to be very informative + much more detailed then I thought. Instructor Greg Bravo did a great job. Subjects covered were very interesting. Make me glad I signed up with AG Affiliates!
The instructor was overqualified, very detailed, and experience stories were very informative. I learned a lot and believe this training will benefit anyone seeking complete informative knowledgeable development in security or law enforcement fields. Greg has a great personality, very down to earth, and approachable! The staff are excellent, professional and truly special people. Nowadays it's hard to find people who are caring and considerate and know how to relate to people. I believe if you are protective by nature seeking a career in security guard work this is the organization to be trained by. Communication is an important aspect to safety and development and Alliance Group Affiliates are organized, professional, and have great communication consideration to others personal situations and keep in touch when matters. Thank you, I learned a lot, please keep in touch, I will.

This training have been one of greatest that I have ever taken. This training will help me to go ahead with exciting career and also my personal life. AG Affiliates is doing an excellent job of training students to become more aware of the changing that our society is having during the past years and learning from those experiences which could be from good experience to bad experience.
Very efficient . . . very thorough . . . gives a lot of information . . . explains information in a very detailed way, layman's interpretation. Would recommend Alliance Group Affiliates highly. On a scale of 1-10 would rate #10! Thank you.
. . . Very knowledgeable of all the subjects. The subjects were very good, also not just as becoming a security guard but as a citizen and a mother many ways to protect our lives better . . . Nobody like AG Affiliates!
Very good class. Very informative. I like the "hands-on" training searching for bombs.

It is refreshing to have a subject matter expert teaching the class. Greg brings true situations that have happened to him in the line of duty. It breathes life into the class.
