Sean Campbell, Training Coordinator

CalVet, CalTAP

Sean Campbell was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania moved to the Sacramento Valley developed a love for California. He graduated from Sacramento High School and then joined the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman.

Seven years of active duty allowed Sean to serve in numerous locations. Sean loved the Navy, travelled on ships, worked in hospitals, and visited various places around the world. His most exciting experiences were found living with 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines and working as their infantry medic. Being a member of the Navy/Marine Corps team provided unique opportunities for growth. He used these to complete his bachelor degree in Criminal Justice and earn the rank of E5.

Leaving active duty permitted Sean to transition his medical training into the security industry. He worked for an armed response security team evolving from a dispatcher, to a patrolman, and then became a team leader. Continuing his growth, Sean finished his Master Degree in Adult Education and ran a training department. Sean has earned instructor licenses in various curriculum from the American Heart Association, NRA, Taser, and the State of California.
