All Guardian College instructors work in their field. Their last shift is often part of your next lecture, giving you relevant, timely knowledge of your future work environment.  Many of our instructors are also training officers in their own departments.  Additional faculty and guest lecturers provide another perspective to their specific field of expertise.
