DCS is about developing our students and not our ego’s. We believe that training with other instructors helps teach you more skills, while reinforcing other skills that you may have learned from us. Our instructors are required to train annually with some of the best, like minded instructors in the country. This not only helps us improve our skills, but also allows us to help you prepare for these courses to get the most out of them when you attend. Classes vary by the instructor and the specific course and often provide a new way of learning. You can rest assure that our recommendation means these top rated nationally recognized instructors share in our beliefs of putting the student first.
