San Jose, CA and Carson, CA (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
Henley-Putnam University, the leading educator in the field of strategic security, and Special Operations Technologies (S.O.TECH), the preeminent provider of tactical gear, have announced a strategic partnership. They also unveiled one of the first results of this partnership, a scholarship for S.O.TECH customers who pursue either a certificate or a degree at Henley-Putnam University.
“As America celebrates her independence, we're reminded of the brave men and women of our armed forces, past and present, who've dedicated their lives to protecting the freedom our forefathers fought to earn,” stated Jim P Killin, CEO of Henley-Putnam University. “We partner with S.O.TECH to equip those in the military and law enforcement with the best tools available, whether that be tactical gear or knowledge, so that they can better serve and protect our great nation.”
“S.O.TECH was founded as a service to military and law enforcement personnel and prides itself on quality products and customer care,” explained James Cragg, President and CEO of S.O.TECH and a Major in the U.S. Army. “We formed this company around our users’ combat needs and we are committed to delivering comfort, practical utility and the highest level of durability for our products – these three things are the cornerstone of our commitment to our servicemen in the field.”
“We are proud to partner with Henley-Putnam and support our customers, most of whom are already members of different US defense communities, to further their education in the various Strategic Defense programs offered by Henley-Putnam” continued Cragg. Henley-Putnam offers BS and MS degrees in Intelligence Management, Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies, Strategic Security & Protection Management, as well as a Doctoral Degree in Strategic Security and several certificate programs. Classes are taught by faculty with practical field experience, and all the resources are available online to accommodate the working servicemen and women, both domestic and abroad.
Soldiers, special agents, law enforcement officers are the ones who help design, test and evaluate the S.O.TECH products. Even the S.O.TECH management team is made up of several current or former military service members including:
- The Marketing team, led by a former U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Officer
- The Sales team, led by a former U.S. Navy SEAL
- The Quality Assurance team, led by a former U.S. Marine and a returning Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veteran who was instrumental in S.O.TECH achieving the full ISO 9001 certification earlier this year.
