What are the students saying about their training experience?

West Carrollton Police Department (OH)

Great class! NIBRS can seem intimidating but Mr. Zoladz presented the information in an easy to understand way. He was very personable and made the subject matter interesting to learn.

Madera County Sheriff's Office (CA)

I attended the 2 day NIBRS training and found it be very information and extremally helpful. Brad is very knowledgeable and is an excellent instructor. He is also willing to help with questions after the training as well. I would recommend this class to anyone that will be working with NIBRS (CIBRS California). While it is great for supervisors to attend this training I think it is just as important for record technicians to attend as well.

Dublin Police Department (OH)

Thank you, Brad, for a great class! You were a very engaging instructor and I was pleased to know that I knew more about NIBRS reporting than I thought I did. You explain things in a way that class attendees could understand. The technology was pretty flawless. You kept up on chat questions and comments, so nothing ever fell through the cracks. I liked the idea of the breakout sessions, though my group seemed to have issues with it. It would have been much better if everyone had a mic and could talk. I put questions out in the chat function during that time and only 1 person responded, so our group basically answered the questions on their own. I would highly recommend you as a trainer for anyone seeking more information on NIBRS reporting! It is not always easy to find classes on the subject. Thank you!

Sarasota County Sheriff's Office (FL)

The webinar was very helpful in understanding NIBRS submission. The information shared will help my agency to submit correctly when NIBRS transformation takes place. Well done, I hope to attend more classes.

Rolling Meadows Police Department (IL)

Very informative class, Brad Zoladz was professional and went through information very thoroughly, and gave great examples when necessary! All questions were answered and the whole class participated. Even though this class pertained to CA NIBRS, Brad answered my questions for IL NIBRS very well. Would highly recommend training with him in the future for anyone looking for extra training/up to date information.
