1/7/2021 - I took a DC Special Police Officer and Maryland Armed training at RBTG. I was very very impressed with the training and the instructors. Classroom and hands on training at the highest level. I am more knowledgeable about the law, the constitution, firearms and how policing works. I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking for PROPER SPO/Security training with instructors who are not only fun and engaging but also subject matter experts to go to RBTG. I can assure you that you will leave with a higher knowledge of laws, the constitution, firearms saftey, baton/OC, deescalation and defensive tactics that could safe your life one day. ~~ Matthew Joynes (Gave a 5 star rating on Google Business)

1/29/2020 - I just had a 64 hours training class at RBTG and I have to say the instructor Mike Brown and Sean Reeves are awesome. I have been during security since 1996 and what I have to say about this training is its the best I ever had. The instructors gave me information that was so imperative and so on point. RBTG don't just teach the fundamentals of being a SPO they give you more. The class was fun and I enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend this type of training for any security company that want to make sure their officers get everything they need and much more. If I had to do the training again I would definitely choose RBTG over anyone. The instructors are certified in so much just look them up. They refuse to let you fail any part of the training. They push you so much it makes you want more. This was the best experience a person could ask for and so much more. So if you want to get trained by the best give RBTG a call best believe they will take you to another level and make you feel more confident in what you are doing in the security field or even everyday life. I would like to give a special shout out to Mike Brown and Sean Reeves. I thank you guys with all my heart for training me and pushing me. I have to warn you the self defense part of the class was the hardest (lol) but they pushed me not to give up. You guys ROCK. Keep up the great work. God bless you and your family. ~~ Ms. Hope Washington (Gave a 5 star rating on Google Business)
7/28/2019 - This is the best training that I have Ever experiences! I have been to a Correctional Officer Academy and a University Police Academy and I must say Reality-Based Training is the best ever. You will definitely be trained by professionals.

Best decision I made in along time. I guarantee you will Not be disappointed. ~~ Dominique Sweatt (Gave a 5 star rating on Google Business)

8/27/2018 - Active Shooter Training for the teachers and staff at St. Jane de Chantal School, Bethesda, MD
"It was VERY interactive and absolutely necessary. An eye opening experience for the whole faculty. I loved it"
"The day was really wonderful yesterday! We learned a lot, and though they made it fun, they impressed upon us that what was being taught was for a very important and serious reason, and that we should pay close attention to the lessons. They impressed upon us that we need to think safety, to keep a vigilant stance emotionally and physically – to observe our surroundings, note changes in behavior of familiar people/strange behavior of those we don’t know, and to listen to/view cues which may serve as warnings. They gave us a lot to ponder, and to realize that in today’s world, we have to think safety in every situation/environment. Makes what was considered as paranoia seem more like a constant state of alertness. We must all be like the U.S. Coast Guards…se! mper paratus. The drills they gave us to practice were useful, and eye opening, too! Just an overall great learning."
"Thanks you for the Active Shooter Training! Shawn and Mike from RBT did an excellent job preparing the faculty and staff. They were knowledgeable, engaging, and they forced us out of our comfort zone! This was all to prepare us for something we hope never happens. I was proud of all of us for taking it seriously and putting everything we had into the lesson. Many of us are sore today. ”

4/14/2018 - We the staff at Little People Place Child Development Center (a private preschool in Westminster, Md.), sincerely and abundantly want to express our greatest gratitude to Michael Brown and his amazing Reality Based Training Group who traveled a great distance on a Saturday to present the Active Shooter Class to us on Saturday, April 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This team of fully trained, highly experienced, and totally committed people completely prepared a large group of wonderful teachers of all ages and backgrounds into a cohesive team of ladies totally prepared physically, psychologically, and intellectually to protect and defend our school’s children and one another, confidently and efficiently in case of threat or attack. Their professionalism, honesty, patience, and expertise were boundless and contagious, developing atmosphere of power, success, and determination far reaching our hope and expectations. The staff experienced intense team building, confidence development, motivation, and self defense training, all in less than 5 hours. We all feel truly indebted and inspired to the Reality Based Training Group and only hope they become certified by the state of Md. for continued training. We personally plan to expand our staff development to include self defense classes, parent involvement, and school age developmentally appropriate exposure. We can never fully express our gratefulness or more highly recommend your class. On a final more personal note, we wholeheartedly thank Micheal and Shawn for your devoted service to our country, our communities, and our children. God bless you both and keep you safe. ~~ In care of children, Mary Burke
