Commonwealth Criminal Justice Academy (CCJA) is comprised of some the industry's best security professionals and Instructors. The training offered at CCJA is as varied as the professionals that provide the training. These experiences range from Private Security, Military, Law Enforcement, Civilian and PSD/WPPS contractors. The common thread among our staff is each instructor possesses the qualifications required by a nationally accepted or academic standard for certification as a General / Firearms Instructor.
All Instructors at Commonwealth Criminal Justice Academy are active security professionals so the instructor not only teaches the material but also practices it in the field. This provides the student with the ability to get text book information that has been tempered in real world experience.
