Mark Dupont and I crossed paths back in 2008 while working on different projects training maritime law enforcement officers. Mark had develo ... ped a maritime course in asset protection that the State of Florida was not only interested in but hired Mark to head it up. In 2009 the pilot course to launch the Tactical Operator Course and the series of maritime courses that Mark had developed and presented to NASBLA, DHS, USCG and FEMA was kicked off. In 2010, the TOC was kicked off to nation. Soon it became the national standard. I was selected by Mark to be one of the Instructors on the first course. It was an honor and I am proud to still be part of this team. Mark Dupont continues to develop maritime courses for all first responders. Mark is very forward looking and is always raising the bar .
