About Us

Overview:
  
American Consulting and Training is a training and consulting firm serving agencies in the homeland security and public safety industry. We are located outside Philadelphia in South Jersey, but we serve every state and territory within the United States. Our training programs, include both those designed and authorized by state and federal government, and those that are specifically created to meet a training need of your agency. Our consulting services vary in scope and include emergency preparedness assistance, event/incident coordination, and identification of training needs.

What separates us from other firms is that we work with your agency to determine your specific needs, rather than using one model for all. We pride ourselves on providing professional services by some of the most qualified individuals in the field. We realize that we exist to better equip public safety and homeland security agencies to reach the ultimate goal of better serving those within your jurisdiction. Reach out to us today to see how we can work with your agency.
