With the conclusion of this year’s CPA the only thing I have to say is that you should take the course next year. The course provides a hands on learning experience that you can’t get any where else. All the officers are friendly and genuinely enjoy teaching people about their work. In retrospect my favorite week was still by far the week with Richmond’s ERU team. Although the experience that we got was toned down a lot from the regular exercises, it does give a good idea of what their training and job is like.
