"The knowledge and training I received at Athens Technical College allowed me to advance significantly in my career of law enforcement. I was already working in my chosen field when I first enrolled at the college. The flexible schedule of classes made it possible for me to work full time and still obtain a college degree. This has allowed me to advance my level of certification through the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST). Mike Sales, the criminal justice instructor, had twenty-six years of law enforcement experience both on the local level and on the federal level. He could tell students how it worked in the real world and not just what the "book says." He can guide students in the direction needed to have a long successful career in law enforcement. I highly recommend Athens Technical College and the law enforcement program to anyone interested in joining this rewarding career."
