NON-LAW ENFORCEMENT, NON-MILITARY MALE PROCEDURE
Non-law enforcement and non active military men may become R.A.D. Basic Physical Defense Instructors after they have followed the outlined criteria below:
Step One - Submit a letter of intent with two (2) letters of recommendation from a police officer, crisis center, R.A.D. Systems Instructor Trainer or individuals from the community who serve in a position of repute. These three (3) letters should be sent to the Director of Instructional Development, R.A.D. Systems, International Headquarters, 1406 S. Range Ave., Ste. 1, Denham Springs, LA 70726 and a contact phone number with optimal time for a call should be noted.
Step Two - A representative from R.A.D . Headquarters will call the Instructor candidate for a telephone interview.
Step Three - If all goes well during the interview, a back ground investigation release form is sent to the Instructor candidate, which must be returned with original signature for the background check to take place.
Step Four - After the paperwork is reviewed, phone interview and background check complete, the entire file is given to the Director of Instructional Development for his approval or denial.
Step Five - Once approved, the Instructor candidate will be sent a letter which will indicate whether or not the Instructor candidate is authorized to attend a future program or not.
Note: This process cannot and will not be rushed to accommodate a specific program. This takes time and is done at the convenience of R.A.D. Headquarters and the Director of Instructional Development. If you have heard nothing for an extended period of time, it is not unusual.
