What others have to say about the “Drive To Survive” Seminar:

“Travis is one of the best in the business.  In the many years I have known and worked with Travis I have always found him to be an innovator in the training community. All his programs are research driven with the end result being, the student receiving state of the art education. Every one of Travis’s projects or training programs that I have witness and/or been involved in is well thought out and goals and objectives oriented. Simply put – anything Travis does will be done well.” Tony Scotti, Vehicle Dynamic Institute

“Your class was undoubtedly one of the best ones my officers have had in many years.”  Major Chris Boyd, Fort Smith Police Department

“Best Part of the ILEETA Conference.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement for 19 years and I’ve never experienced a class like this before.”

“Your class was the best I had at the CALEA Conference.”

“Travis, I want to sincerely thank you and so does my three year old daughter. I was not a huge seatbelt user before. I would put it on during certain responses or events but, would not wear it for routine patrol. I also had a heavy foot,
that has become lighter since your class. You have more than likely improved my chances of surviability in the event of a crash.”

“Your class is undoubtedly the best one my officers have had in many years.  I’ve had nothing but positive feedback and compliments about it from my officers, and you know as well as I do that cops with any time on the job at all don’t normally hand out such reviews unless they’re pretty impressed.”

“I sat in on your presentation on Thursday and then understood why you were honored as the Trainer of the Year. I have been preaching your driving death stats to anyone who will listen around here.  I was totally unaware of this preventable aspect of annual officer deaths and have already challenged all of our supervisors here to take increased notice of all driving related complaints.”

“Travis, I met you on Wednesday April 30th at the ESLETS Conference in Lake George, NY.  I was at your table in the morning.  I asked where you were from and when I realized who you were, that I read your articles.  Anyway, I enjoyed your presentation as did the other two officers from my PD.”
