WHO WE ARE
Strategos Consulting, a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) was established in 2008 to identify and ultimately provide usable technological solutions to the United States Government and its strategic partners. The company is focused on finding and mentoring niche technologies and provides guidance, direction, and potential capital to help new technologies reach the level of maturity necessary to respond to mission needs. In 2009, we created Strategos Training, a professional training department focused on providing education and training to the adult learner that is focused on the professional business environment. Strategos Training specializes in training analysis, training plan development, curriculum development, eLearning development, and execution of training requirements.
Our mission is to provide trainees with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in maritime operations, small craft maintenance, small craft mobility, operational planning, and execution of training exercises. Throughout our training program, each course of instruction will focus on further building the "team-building" ability, organizational leadership capabilities, group dynamics, supervisory skills, and personnel development.
Our goal is to serve as the foundation for professional instructional services worldwide, through our team that will properly prepare individuals to perform assigned duties within each organization; but also provide each client with proposals for new doctrine, instructions, and processes and procedures for areas within an organization. Our goal is to develop a diverse and talented group of professionals through training, education, mentoring and opportunities for teams and individuals to gain experience and realize their full potential. Throughout each training program and course of instruction there is a constant focus to further build the team building ability, organizational leadership capabilities, group dynamics, supervisory skills, and personnel development.
We have established and maintained a sterling record of safely providing highly trained tactical forces with specialized skills. While the requirements for this effort are clearly articulated and are built on a precedent of success, we strongly believe that our years of combatant craft/ small unit maritime training experience sets us apart from other companies. Our key personnel while on active duty have fulfilled key positions such as Executive Officer of a Special Boat Team, Training Officer, Combatant Craft Patrol Officers, Boat Captains, Engineers, and Officer in Charge of two Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman Schools. We offer this experience, not as a means to the only answer to the transformation of training, but rather to emphasize that our desire is to work with NSHQ to continuously seek ways to assist in the development of world-class Maritime Small Boat/Combatant Craft Training Programs, Personnel Qualification Standards Programs, and a doctrine that will produce the most highly qualified personnel to fill critical positions within NSHQ’s maritime alliance.
