Sheldon Carpenter is a retired Federal Agent that spent the majority of his military career within U.S. Special Operations, as was later hand selected by several National-Level intelligence agencies, as well as the U.S. Secret Service on occasion, to conduct highly sensitive intelligence, protection, security, counter-terrorism, and other operations of global importance. Mr. Carpenter quickly reached senior levels of leadership within Special Operations as well as later being assigned as the Special Agent in Charge while serving in intelligence, narco-terrorism, and counter-terrorism roles.
Mr. Carpenter has always possessed a talent for effectively delivering the highest levels of training. Mr. Carpenter has done so for decades and affected numerous organizations within the US Government, with his first recognition as a stellar instructor being awarded in 2001. Mr. Carpenter amassed a wealth of knowledge not only militarily through years of operational and leadership experiences in combat and hostile environments in Special Ops, but also while leading and conducting classified operations in permissive environments; to include within the United States. Throughout his career, Mr. Carpenter not only delivered training on established programs with improvements based on his knowledge of a wide berth of skill sets, but also built programs from the ground up and assisted others in the development of numerous training programs that were approved by the Department of Defense, The Department of State which improved operations within 29 U.S. Embassies, Special Operations Command, and several National Level Intelligence Agencies.
