I attended this school for basic armed security, arrest authority, and basic handgun through the 3 in one package which was very convenient as everything was scheduled in one week.The classes were thorough and very well done, Ali the owner/instructor went above and beyond in teaching both the required book material and real life applications.Ali has a lot of experience in the industry and it shows, he went above and beyond in helping show people some of the common mistakes that new people to the industry make and how to avoid them, as well as how to network for jobs and what the best bang for the buck gear to start out is.Ali also taught the class completely non-political and without any bias or judgment so I would definitely say women and LGBTQ friendly for anyone who my be wondering.

I really enjoyed the security class with Ali. He is a very thorough, educated, and articulate instructor. I learned so many things about Virginia law and security resources/services from him. He gives great insight about the security field. Ali also has a good sense of humor. I will be returning to Status Defense for all of my security training needs in the future. Thanks Ali!

Review №4

Ali is hands-down one of the best instructors ive had the privilege of ever meeting. During the classes he kept us engage he used his personal experience he didnt just read through slides nor did it feel like a lecture. He provided good materials to the class like where to get gear what gear to start off with and in his opinion what has worked for him and not. I will definitely be attending more classes with Ali and his Stratus Defense Team!

I would recommend this business to friends and family. Ali Kiaee is an awesome instructor with a firm amount of hands on experience. Upon enrolling in a few of his classes, immediately I began considering taking more after my first class. If you’re interested in an interactive learning experience where your teacher aids you in finding employment, I encourage you enroll now!

Mr. Ali is an excellent instructor, with an easy to follow teaching style. He knows this field and everything that goes into it backwards and forwards. He treats his classes with the utmost professionalism. Most importantly, if he doesn’t know something, he gives you every possible resource to find it.With a perfect balance of weighty discussions and levity, his classes are a joy to attend. Although it is a lot of information, he takes his time to ensure every student attending understands the subject well before moving on. He also works to save you money, which I find commendable. I’m glad I was referred to him, and would not have preferred to have taken this course with anyone else.

Absolutely loved this course very beneficial and extremely knowledgeable instructed Ali Kiaee is a tremendous teacher and an even better mentor. Went above and beyond for this course and I truly feel that I’ve gotten my money’s worth. 10/10 highly recommended for friends and family!

Review №13

I would highly recommend this instructor/company. I took a basic firearms training course with Ali a week ago; training included both an extended theory session and a practice session at the range. What was remarkable is that the instructor really cares about safety and competence of his students. When at the range, my firearm kept jamming. Not only did Ali spent extra time with me trying to diagnose the exact issue - he went above and beyond! He reached out a few days later and examined and cleaned my gun; he then spent another hour with me at the firing range and figured out exactly what I was doing wrong (it was not the gun issue). Today, I left the range feeling confident and competent enough to keep on practicing on my own. I am grateful for Alis responsible attitude (no unfinished business!) and for his superb expertise. Cant recommend him enough!

Great instructor. Very knowledgeable in the security field. No bs.

Review №19

By far the best training officer in Virginia. Super good prices and professionalism. Ranging from unarmed, armed security, to personal protection and weapons tactics. This officer has years of experience and is educated in this security/ law enforcement industry. He will teach and train you thoroughly so that you are ready to step out into the field which you sign up for. I promise you guys you will not be disappointed .

Review №23

Yeah man Ali is my guy. If you want to actually learn!!! Key word learn, how to use a gun properly. This is the place you need to go. He will walk you step by step you just need to pay attention. No u cant come here for someone just to sign off on your licences. You need to learn how to shoot and be safe with a weapon, and Mr. Ali teaches this. He also teaches shotgun, First aid, OC spray, batons handcuffs, and many more. Put in the work and go get certified. Also teaches you hidden information if you really listen in.

Review №24

Ali is a super cool guy and great instructor. He is very knowledgeable and knows a lot about the security business. Very meticulous in his teachings and he shares information that hes not even required to do, helping you gain more knowledge than you will probably gain elsewhere.
