The DrillMaster offers the only trainer, instructor, coach and adjudicator certification program for the Military Drill World. With each certification you then have the knowledge necessary to start creating a foundation of education for those you train. You can build on my knowledge and experience and go further!

This is an overview, please contact me to find out complete details.

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”

~ Theodore Roosevelt

These courses of study give you a sound educational foundation to help you begin or enhance your military drill instructional and/or judging career. The courses are self-paced. When you notify me, I will email you the link to the test. You then receive a grade and continue to the next block (if applicable).

You receive a firm foundational education- beyond that which is taught anywhere else and a certificate suitable for framing. The blocks of instruction require downloading of free materials and/or the purchase of books.

  1. I realize your article is from 6 years ago, but I just saw it and I want to say Thank You for the Misplace Respect of the Flag Article. One of the stars just got turned into lost and found at my local gym and we looked up the site to see if it was legit. As someone who has dealt with and even taught scout groups flag etiquette, and am both wife and daughter of Vets and involved in local Veteran groups, I completely agree that they should NOT be doing this. I just want to say thanks for what you did with the stars they sent you and for speaking your mind. Kudos to you!
