article 9 course
Feb 28, 2024
I took the Article 9 course yesterday, it was very well presented by the teacher. I was able to remember some things that I had forgotten from my last class He was very thorough. I remembered what it was like back in 1975 when I was young I had a cousin that was challenged, and I remembered how hard it was for her .

Well done! If the desired outcome is to make this exceed expectations, please consider adding more visuals, relevant practice and interactivity. I suggest no more than 5 bullets on a slide, with no more that 5 words in a sentence, if this is not possible leverage infographics or adding more slides. In addition consider flipping the amount of instructional time to 80% practical scenario based learning and 20% history and setting context for why the mission is important. For the scenarios consider adding relevant practice on how to perform "under reacting" skills. Use a timed, emotionally provocative, and high stakes stakes scenario with multiple choice reactions that learners likely experience. Even without these changes, I would highly recommend the course to a friend, it was that good. The instructor is well spoken, encouraging and inspiring. I am eager to dive deeper into the topic, even if it would not be a requirement. Well done!

This class was very well organized and the information was relayed in an obtainable fashion The videos shared with the program were very helpful and the clarity of the class was awesome Time was taken by Chris to answer questions by those asking and patience was noted for repetitive concerns I enjoyed this class and structure and the lengthy time of the class went by fast I am so very happy I PASSED the quiz!

There is no way to fail the test after this rich class

Chris can make stones understand and talk. He is gifted with teaching and explaining all the information in a magical way. I recommend taking class with Chris especially for people who don't speak English as a first language because he speaks very clear and understandable English. Thank you.

AMAZING Training, Would like to see more examples run through at the end
Feb 24, 2024
Chris was an amazing teacher. I really enjoyed his training and it's honestly the best Article 9 training I've ever had. My only concern is that I didn't feel prepared enough for the scenarios in the test. The three scenarios he gave at the end of the training were very straight forward and easy to answer, but the scenarios in the quiz were more gray and harder to figure out. I wish he would go over more difficult scenarios. Like laying a beach towel over someone's arms, so he won't grab - it this supposed to be a redlight/restraint even though he could easily take it off or is this a noxious stimuli? Is it a greenlight like just a cue/prompt to remember not to reach/grab? Very confusing. Thanks!

We were blessed with an excellent instructor CHRIS GARCIA. CHRIS is deeply knowledgeable in the subject he taught. Thanks CHRIS! The course itself is worth taking by institutions outside DDD affiliates. Well done
